Glengoyne 21 Year Single Malt Scotch
Okay, you must be used to this –
I just sent out an advertisement regarding Glengoyne 10 Year Single Malt Scotch. And yes, that scotch is darn tasty.
But, of course, having been around 175 plus years, Glengoyne also has many older and wiser scotches. And we here at Waterford were able to procure a couple of bottles (and I do mean bottles) of these precious rarities. And for you Insiders, here are those bottles of the 21 year.
There is a big difference though – to my understanding, the 10 year is matured exclusively in oak casks, while 21 year is entirely matured in sherry casks. I would guess—in an educated way—that at distilling, the Master Distiller takes a center cut in the run and then sends it into sherry casks, knowing that it will be the strongest, fullest, and roundest of all the spirit. Whether this is completely accurate or not, I don’t know. But what I do know is that this is some mighty tasty stuff:
The 21 year is just fantastic. It opens with sensual fruit notes of red apple, ripe honeydew melon, orange marmalade, and just a hint of roasted nuts with a squeeze of lemon zest. The palate is utterly smooth and luscious, like a delicious crème caramel with its succulent yumminess. This is an amazing dram.
And we also have it at an incredible price. Here it is:
