The Glengoyne distillery sits at the foot of Dumgoyne Hill near Loch Lomond. The distillery burn, as it is known, tumbles down the Dumgoyne Hill providing water for the 1.1 million liters capacity whisky distillery. In the past, the woodlands and undulations which covered the surrounding area gave superb shelter for the illegitimate distillations that were brought about by heavy spirit taxation. During the early 19th century, it is rumored, there were as many as eighteen illicit Stills in the area. The whisky that came from these Stills was taken to the local blacksmith, who filled earthenware pots with the rough, wild spirit and employed local girls to walk the 14 miles to Glasgow with the whisky concealed beneath their hooped skirts. The dense woodland once provided shelter for Rob Roy MacGregor who secreted himself in a little hollow when pursued by the English army.
With spicy vanilla fruit, ripe apples and a rich, luxurious mouthfeel, this incredible 18-year Glengoyne was released in 2012 as a classic sherried and non-peated whisky. This single malt is the result of 18 long years in first and re-fill sherry casks.
Tasting Notes: Creamy custard and dried peels. Allspice, manuka honey and hints of butterscotch
