Distilled by Glengoyne, a distillery in continuous operation since 1833, this 18yr expression features sherry maturation for the life of aging.
Big salted caramel, toffee, rising bread and a touch of ash. Light minerality, creme brulee and a touch of raisin.
Moderate mouthfeel, some caramel, honey, praline, light maltiness and touch of ash. Sweet overall, with nutty sherry up front, caramel behind, and light apple pie sweetness in the back.
Long finish, enjoyably sweet and complex. Fruity, nutty essence forward sherry with some cream, toffee and touch of ash in the back.
Really great presence here, a good bit of complexity, at a great price. The nutty, sherry forward profile is enjoyable.
