Glengoyne 12 Years Old 70 cl 43°
If we compare 12-year-old Glengoyne to the 10-year-old expression, we discover a Single Malt with more body thanks to its 43° titration and a character taking more Sherry. Indeed, the whisky benefited from a rich maturation with an assembly of:
20% in first-fill European oak casks containing Sherry,
20% in first fill American oak barrels containing Bourbon,
60% in second fill oak casks.
These differences, combined with two extra years of maturation in casks, give Glengoyne 12 years old a much more assertive character, while remaining in the inimitable style of the distillery.
This 12-year-old Single Malt is distilled in the purest tradition of Glengoyne from malted barley by pulsed air, without peat smoke, preserving the authentic "real taste of malt".
Craftsmanship, as well as processes to make and age the whisky, bring out notes of lemon zest, candy apples and a scent of coconut.

Glengoyne is a whisky with unique taste. The natural environment of this valley (Glen) full of magic has contributed to the making of this remarkable Highlands Single Malt whisky.
The rain pouring on Dumgoyne Hill granite rocks fills up with fragrant heather aromas, and runs down in pure and clear streams absorbing completely the unpeated barley flavour. Since 1833, the Glengoyne distillery has still been using traditional methods and craft arts to retain the authenticity of its whiskies. Located on the old Highland Line, the spirit is made in the Highlands but stocked in the Lowlands. At Glengoyne, the barley malting is done naturally, without using peat fire, which preserves the delicate, original aromatic hues of barley. Glengoyne Single Malt has a distinctive unpeated taste that lets each flavour to break through.
