This latest release from the Highland based distillery, which is said to celebrate the contrast and harmony created by the interplay of its Sherry and Bourbon casks, delivers notes of malt flour, fresh hay, dried fruits, citrus and rosehip on the nose. Followed by notes of tropical fruit, cinnamon, vanilla and apple on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Katy Muggeridge, Brand Director at Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “Glengoyne’s spirit spends three times as long in its stills than other whiskies, and this creates a distinctively light, smooth and fruity spirit style. For the 15 Year Old, we wanted to showcase Glengoyne’s signature style brought to maturity in absolute balance from the combination of both bourbon and sherry casks. The first fill maturation gives complex depth, bright tropical notes, and a spicy oak finish whilst the refill casks allow the fruity Glengoyne house style to shine through. It’s an exciting and intriguing Glengoyne dram, with a unique flavour profile.”

Glengoyne 15 Year Old, is now available from the distillery website and specialist retailers, for a RRP of £90.00.
