For the latest Glengoyne Cask Strength release we get an essay in wood, combining for a richly textured and powerful Single Malt dram.

Originally called "Burnfoot Distillery," George Connell officially started Glengoyne in 1833 — after the Excise Tax Law of 1823 made it cost-effective to do so. The fact that good old George had been hauling full casks of Whisky out of the tree-lined glen since 1820 is purely a coincidence. Anyway, the point is that they have been making Single Malt Whisky here for a long time. Famously, they say the Glengoyne distilling process takes longer than any other in Scotland in order to deliver their unique richness and character.

We’ve got to admit that we look forward to the annual releases of Glengoyne Cask Strength. Each batch is a bit different, but the quality and craftsmanship is unchanging. Batch 7 is an essay in wood with aging completed in first fill Oloroso Sherry casks of both American and European oak along with a smattering of refill and ex-Bourbon barrels as well. We suspect that it is the mix of casks and agings that make this Single Malt a NAS, but in this case age is a number to be ignored. The dram is rich and powerfully flavored with wonderful complexity and served at a life-changing 58.9% ABV which will stand up to whatever ice or splashes of water you’d care throw at it.

It’s like smelling dessert with notes of caramel and milk chocolate with baking spices.

The palate has all the fruits and roasted walnuts of a Christmas cake along with exotic woods, espresso, and granola.

Finish
The finish is wonderfully long with sweet wild honey.
