Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whisky graces the glass with a light, golden straw hue, a color achieved without the influence of artificial additives or caramel coloring. The liquid's clarity and viscosity foreshadow its pure, well-balanced nature.
A soft, inviting aroma greets the olfactory senses with a bouquet of green apples, freshly cut hay, and subtle hints of almonds. The absence of peat in Glengoyne’s distillation process allows for the emergence of more delicate and fruit-forward nose profiles.
The palate is deceptively complex for a whisky of this age. Notes of toffee and vanilla, derived from its time in ex-Bourbon casks, dance alongside nuances of malt and soft oak. Subtle undertones of dried fruits and spices provide additional layers of complexity.
The finish is clean and crisp, with a touch of ginger warmth and a fleeting return of ripe green apples. It leaves a pleasant, slightly nutty aftertaste, inviting another sip.
The whisky is medium-bodied with a smooth, almost creamy texture. The moderate alcohol content of 40% ABV ensures that it is accessible, even to those new to the world of Scotch.
