Glengoyne 10 Years 70cl 40% vol. It is a light, soft and herbaceous malt whiskey, made in the south of the Highlands region, on the border with the Lowlands. In fact, the distillery is in the Highlands and the winery, in the Lowlands. This edition of Glengoyne 10, with the painting 'Autumn Moon Over Glengoyne' printed on the case, is a collaboration with contemporary artist Jolomo to contribute to the reconstruction of the Mackintosh School of Art in Glasgow.
Since 1833, Glengoyne's founding date, the distillery has been brewing malt whiskey tirelessly, without periods of inactivity. The distillery is located north of Glasgow and south of the Scottish Highlands, so much so that whiskey is distilled in the Highlands and ages in the Lowlands.
Unlike most Scottish distilleries, whiskey is made from peat-free water from Dumgoyne Hill, and the malt is dried only and exclusively with hot air. The type of malt used by the distillery is the 'Golden Promise', being, together with The Macallan, one of the two distilleries to use this type of malt in Scotland.
Glengoyne whiskey enjoys the slowest distillation process in Scotland, the distillate that comes out of the stills does so at a rate of 4 to 5 liters per minute.
All these very characteristic stretches place Glengoyne whiskey at the point of the spectrum where the softest and lightest whiskeys in Scotland are located.
The distillery began producing its first whiskeys in 1833, although there are data that indicate that the illegal distillation of whiskey was carried out in the area long before, under the name of Burnfoot Distillery, aging them in a cellar near the distillery, in which whiskey is still aged today. In 1876 the distillery passed to the Lang brothers, who wished to change the name of the distillery to Glengoyne, but by the error of a clergyman he was renamed Glen Guin. Later, in 1905, the distillery was renamed with the original name devised by the Lang brothers, Glengoyne.
In 1984, the Lang brothers became suppliers of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, obtaining the royal seal, which has been implemented in all Glengoyne products since then.
The whiskey produced by Glengoyne is of a soft and light character, in which the notes of malt, clove, green apple and toffee tend to stand out.
Style: Single Malt.
Aging: The malt, 'Golden Promise' has dried only and exclusively with hot air, which makes it one of the few whiskey Highlands to dry naturally. The whiskeys have aged in American white oak barrels of ex-bourbon and European oak of ex-sherry.
Nose: Light, with graceful floral and herbaceous notes, with great influence of bourbon, creamy, caramel and vanilla casks.
Mouth: Rich, dry and clean, sweet notes of malted barley and vanilla.
Finish: Long with notes of sweet and sour barley.
A whiskey with a series of peculiarities that makes it unique and places it as a light and soft whiskey. In addition, in this expression, we found a collaboration with the Scottish painter John Lowrie Morrison for the reconstruction of fire damage at Glasgow School of Art.
