Glengoyne 26 year old Single Cask Distilled 1987 (Cask #384), 54.6%

Price: $557 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This 26 year old single cask Glengoyne was matured in a first-fill European oak sherry butt that yielded 339 bottles. It offers a nose of sultanas, figs, and vanilla, plus white pepper and a hint of linseed. Succulent in the mouth, the palate yields sweet sherry, honey, and contrasting lemon juice and pepper. The finish is lengthy, but dries rapidly, with lively pepper, oak tannins, and a final fatty note.£350
