Nose: Warm baked custard, peppered strawberries, digestive biscuits, soft oak and a short sherbet tingle.
Palate: Thick rosehip syrup, Demerara sugar developing into a spicy, gooseberry dryness. Wonderful balance, nothing dominates.
Finish: Very long.
Bottled un-chillfiltered at 58.9% ABV, Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 has been crafted using a combination of first-fill European and American oak Oloroso sherry casks, refill casks and bourbon barrels.
Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 boasts a fruity, malty flavour profile, featuring notes of cinnamon, orange, peaches and honey. Its warm amber-gold hue is imparted from time and wood alone. This commitment to natural colour is only possible because of Glengoyne Distillery’s world-class wood policy which sees sherry casks embark on a 6-year journey before Glengoyne’s new-make spirit is filled into the oak.
John Glass, Malt Master at Glengoyne Distillery, said: “The bourbon parcel we used in the distillation of Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 brought in a sweetness and a burst of vanilla, which adds a roundness and depth to this sherry-dominant whisky. The bourbon plays a light, but important, part in the overall cask recipe.”
Katy Macanna, Brand Manager for Glengoyne, said: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007, the latest release in our popular Cask Strength series.
“Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 has an intense burst of flavour, yet it retains the sweet and fruity character for which Glengoye’s collection of Highland Single Malt Whiskies is renowned. As with all six in the series before it, Batch No. 007 is a whisky of the purest quality, bottled un-chillfiltered, straight from the cask, having been distilled in the same unhurried way for which Glengoyne is loved.”
Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 retails at £59.99 per 70cl bottle, and is available to purchase at www.glengoyne.com
