Glengoyne 21 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Glengoyne Single Malt Whisky is produced exclusively from Golden Promise barley. Golden Promise is an early-maturing spring barley that has a depth of flavor ideal for single malts. While it was popular in the production of whisky for many years, it gave way to cheaper barely that was higher in yield but lower in quality. Today, Glengoyne, along with The Macallan, is one of only two distilleries remaining in Scotland that continues to use Golden Promise barley.
Once the Golden Promise barley has been air-dried, it is milled and mashed before being fermented for 56 hours in washbacks crafted from pine. Following fermentation, the wash is distilled through Glengoyne's copper-pot wash still and then again through its two copper-pot spirit stills, working in tandem (whisky is distilled more slowly at Glengoyne than at any other distillery in Scotland). The copper stills remove any remaining sulphur in the wash, and produce the sweet, concentrated flavors that define Glengoyne Scotch Whisky.
Following distillation, Glengoyne 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is matured for 21 years in sherry casks crafted from Spanish oak. The process for selecting and coppering these casks takes six years: oak trees are selected and felled in the North of Spain and the wood from these trees is cut into staves. After the staves have dried for three years, the casks are coopered at Tevasa Cooperage in Spain, filled with Oloroso sherry for approximately 28 months and then emptied before being shipped to Glengoyne.
As a result of these incredible and carefully selected casks, the whisky has an aroma of Christmas cake, honey and red fruits that gives way to notes of plums, berries and creamy vanilla on the palate. The finish is lush, elegant and full, with touches of sherry and red fruit underlying hints of cloves and spices.
