Glengoyne 15 year old Distiller's Gold, 40%

Price: $70 Issue: Winter 2011 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Distiller's Gold is exclusive to Travel Retail outlets and is dedicated to the distillery's first manager, Cochran Cartwright, whose ghost is said to haunt the Stirlingshire distillery. Distiller's Gold displays a nose of brittle nut toffee and dried fruit, with vanilla and caramel notes emerging. Spicy tropical fruits on the palate, with an edge of cinnamon and ginger. Medium in length, pleasantly oaky, persistently nutty and spicy. Price is per liter.
