Glengoyne - The Distillery Cask (cask 2717)
Bottling: Distillery Bottling (Distillery Only)
Cask: 1st fill Bourbon Barrel
Bright fresh fruit with cream. Pear drop and fruit salad sweets. A little red wine. Digging deeper some very distant wood, Pencil shavings.
Green Apple, Liquorice and Fennel Spice.
Long and teeth coating. Aniseed and Fennel.
Picked this up while driving past the distillery. Within the shop they always have a hand picked barrel to directly fill your own bottle. A little on the steep side for the age, but for the distillery it is relatively rare in the sense that they do not often release much outwith their core range to the general public.
