Glengoyne 10 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Unlike most other single malts Glengoyne has been preserving the essence of its flavour for decades by using air-dried barley rather than barley dried using harsh peat smoke. The result is a subtler, complex whisky in which all of the delicate flavours are freely allowed to express themselves.
Appearance: Golden yellow. Clear and bright
Nose: Sweet, with toffee and popcorn aromas. Slightly nutty, with fresh green apples coming through
Initial Taste: Clean. Green apples and grass with a hint of sweet liquorice
After Water: Sweeter. Linseed oil and almonds.
Finish: Sweet and malty
Comments: Great introduction to Glengoyne range
Glengoyne 12 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Discover the real taste of single malt. Distilled from air-dried barley without peat smoke, and using the soft, pure local water, this unique whisky is bottled unchill-filtered at cask strength to preserve its natural flavour.
Appearance: Amber, syrupy. Sauternes.
Nose: Oak, sherry, digestive biscuits, sweet oatcakes, banana, apricot, peaches, marzipan and peardrops. Does not prick the nose, despite high strength.
Mouthfeel: Viscous, rich and filling
Initial Taste: Smooth, sweet start, with some sherry and chocolate.
After Water: Becomes slightly waxy, with pepper at the tail.
Finish: Very long, stays with you until morning!
Comments: First released September 2004, this is a welcome addition to the family. This is 100 Proof, but you'd never know it. It slips down a treat and is probably at its best without water.

Jim's Choice Aged: 15yrs Tasting Notes
Description: I love Glengoyne at this age - the cask and the whisky are perfectly balanced. There is plenty of sweet fruit and rich oak. It is pale, straw in colour, with rich sweet aromas, full fruit flavours and a long dry finish. This is certainly no April fool!
