Batch No. 009 has an ABV of 59.6% and delivers an undiluted and uninterrupted dram typical of the Highland distillers’ signature style.
As Scotland’s slowest distilled malt, Glengoyne is renowned for its gloriously sweet, fruity spirit. This spirit is filled into casks which themselves take six years to prepare before they’re deemed suitable to mature the new make.
Bottled straight from the cask, it’s a whisky that celebrates Glengoyne’s unwavering commitment to full maturation in American and European oak. The result is a vibrant and decadent whisky that truly brings the best out of each cask. Batch No. 009 is comprised of first-fill Oloroso sherry, bourbon, and refill casks.
On the nose you’re met with baked lemon, rich sticky toffee pudding, malt biscuits, plum, hazelnut, and an unmistakable hit of zesty apple. To taste, expect a weighty mouthful of rich vanilla and fresh fruits that develop into poached pears with cinnamon spice and a drizzle of honey. The finish is long and rewarding, with Medjool dates, apricot, toffee, and honey.
Neil Boyd, UK Managing Director for Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “With each of our casks taking six years to craft, Glengoyne’s wood policy has always been one of its most notable characteristics. As a result, the Cask Strength series has long been popular among our fans as it lets them sample liquid straight from these exceptional casks.”
Barbara Turing, Brand Manager for Glengoyne, said: “Just like each Cask Strength iteration that went before it, Batch No. 9 delivers on that much-loved Glengoyne signature style – rich, sweet, and fruity. We’re confident that this will be yet another firm favourite.”
