Glengoyne

Glengoyne is one of the most picturesque distilleries in Scotland. Glengoyne Distillery is situated at the foot of the hill Dumgoyne. Dumgoyne is on the edge on the Campsie Fells. It is a volcanic plug and is 427m high and is readily reached from the path that is beside the Glengoyne Distillery. Glengoyne is renowned for distilling slower than any other distillery. They distill about one third of the usual speed of any other malt distillery. In 1833 the distillery was legalized to produce spirit but it is believed that there were many stills around the area where the distillery now lies that worked around the clock producing illegal spirit. House Style: Easily drinkable, but full of malty flavour. Restorative, with dessert, or after dinner.


The Nose: Soft, slightly floral, candied lemon and citrus notes. Theres an Anise/Pernod quality as well. A bit of oak as well, and coupled with the citrus, some nice Earl Grey/Bergamot tones. Theres also just a faint whiff of smoke. The Palate: It tasted far simpler than the nose lead me to believe. A nice light, slightly oily mouth-feel, some pepper and spice, some, not much, but some smoke, some burnt-orange and citrus notes. Nothing too unique or for that matter, rewarding here. Finish: Medium, a little pepper and smoke. 17 years in wood comes through here more, but frankly, If Id spent 17 years in a wood cask, Id want someone to know a little sooner than the finish.
