1997 Glengoyne 16 Year Old K&L Exclusive "Sovereign" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1154937

Glengoyne is one of those distilleries that everybody loves, but never remembers. Located right on the border between Highland and Lowland -a line conveniently drawn right around the distillery- it's definitely one of the up and coming malts these days. Despite being quite well regarded by many, we rarely see Glengoyne around and even less so as an independent bottling. This lovely cask came as a surprise when we first tasted it as it was not on our radar either. What we found was a splendidly idiosyncratic example of this little distillery. It feels like we're a little more on the lowland side of the street here, with soft grassy aromas, subtle white pepper, and only moderate oak on the nose and palate. The oak spice builds on the finish, but it's not a power house. Instead, a fresh and forward aperitif that should do well for you as the weather starts to heat up again.

This single malt is for those who want a whisky that is not too heavy but is more medium bodied. This Glengoyne offers a lot of complexity with layers of flavors. There is a nice long finish to round out the experience.
