Glengoyne 30 Year Old, comes presented in what is describes as a luxurious solid oak box, featuring an oak and rose gold bung and a hessian square, the outer casing reflects the traditional cask sampling method employed by Glengoyne Distillery.
Commenting on the launch, Robbie Hughes, Distillery Manager at Glengoyne Distillery, said: “We are delighted with the exceptional quality and taste of the Glengoyne 30 Year Old, it has certainly been worth the wait! Meticulous time and care has been given into selecting the perfect cask make up for this special bottling, ensuring the very highest quality liquid which truly reflects Glengoyne’s character."
He continued by saying: "This distinctive malt is made up of 33% first fill European oak sherry butts and 66% specially selected refill sherry butts. The refill butts impart plenty of flavour and colour but do not dominate or overpower our spirit with too much oak. They also tend to be fresher and fruitier, good for balancing the richness and weight of the sherry casks, adding pleasant top notes and complexity. In this instance, the task was finding the right mix of refill cask to best showcase the sherry exceptional oloroso sherry casks we spend six years sourcing, ensuring incredible colour and an exceptional flavour profile.”
Glengoyne 30 Year Old, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, and from glengoyne.com for a RRP of £600.00.
