Unlike most other single malts Glengoyne has been preserving the essence of its flavour for decades by using air-dried barley rather than barley dried using harsh peat smoke. The result is a more subtle, complex whisky in which all of the delicate flavours are freely allowed to express themselves. Golden yellow. Clear and bright. Sweet, with toffee and popcorn aromas. Slightly nutty, with fresh green apples coming through. Warming. Clean. Green apples and grass with a hint of sweet liquorice. After Water: Sweeter. Linseed oil and almonds. Sweet and malty. A great introduction to Glengoyne range.
