This single cask of Glengoyne was distilled in 2008 and matured for 9 years in a 1st fill ex-Bourbon barrel.
An exuberant nose of juicy fruits provoked a sense of excitement as ripe pineapple and gooseberries flirted with pomegranates in a flower garden. Papaya arrived with a squeeze of lime juice whilst poached pears offered a softness that crumbled into chalky sweets. A sprinkling of ground cinnamon delivered a pleasing spice on top of glazed apple tart with sticky fudge and walnuts that blended into soft new leather. The palate tantalised the tongue with chilli and ginger before a hefty deliverance of butter pastry indulged us with Danish pastries laden with raspberries, blackcurrants, maple syrup and pecans. Strawberry tarts and lemon sponge cake directed us further towards fruity delights before the finish arrived bound in orange skin, spice and dry wood.
