Glengoyne The Legacy Series Chapter Three
You Save: £6.00
Based in the Highlands, Glengoyne enjoys the slowest rate of distillation in Scotland and very long fermentations, making an estery, sweet, and fruity new make spirit. This is the third (and final) instalment in the distillery’s Legacy Series, and this particular release celebrates the distillery's original excise manager, Sir Arthur John Tedder.
While he lived on site and had to keep an eye out for any illicit whisky leaving the warehouse, he was also influential in defining what could be considered Scotch whisky (some people believed a blend of malt and grain whisky didn’t count), and the rules which he helped create remain to this day. But this is a single malt, matured in a selection of sherry casks – that fruity new make is robust enough to stand up to the maturation, resulting in a spicy, subtly sweet whisky.
Sticky figs, toasted kitchen spices, and apple turnover, with some fruitcake nestled in there too.
Buttery fudge, creamy nuts, and stewed berries, with hints of cinnamon and black pepper bringing balance.
Roasted coffee bean, pear skin, and runny caramel.
