Glengoyne adds 25-year-old whisky to range


Glengoyne 25A 25-year-old expression is being added to the Glengoyne Highland single malt Scotch whisky collection.

Matured exclusively in hand-selected sherry casks for a quarter of a century, the Glengoyne 25 Year Old will join the 10, 12, 15, 18, 21 Year Old and Cask Strength malts. It is being released in April.

Iain Weir, marketing director for owner Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “The Glengoyne 25 Year Old is an extremely special malt.

“Matured in our traditional dunnage warehouses for 25 years in the finest European oak sherry casks, unchill-filtered and bottled as taste insists at 48% ABV, the result is a flavour of soft oak, cinnamon, stewed fruits and a Seville marmalade tang. A perfect after-dinner dram.”

The malt is presented in a new heavy bespoke bottle and outer box. The bottle features a fine metal stopper, crafted cartouche and delicately branded neck tag and is displayed in an oak box interior, which includes an engraved plinth. The elegant exterior has a refined feather pattern subtly varnished on the pack.

The 70cl bottle is recommended for sale in retail at £250.

Unlike most other single malt whiskies, Glengoyne dries its malted barley using only warm air resulting in this extremely subtle yet complex malt where all the delicate flavours are freely expressed.

Glengoyne Distillery in Dumgoyne near Loch Lomond runs its stills slower than any other distillery, supporting the claim that Glengoyne is “Worth the wait”.
