Glengoyne Legacy One
Here we have Chapter One of Glengoyne's The Legacy Series. This expression celebrates Cochrane Cartwright, Glengoyne’s distillery manager in 1869, who famously introduced sherry casks to Glengoyne. The liquid was matured in first fill European oak Oloroso sherry casks as well as Glengoyne's refill casks, before being bottled at 48% ABV.
Nose: Think luxurious sticky toffee pudding, packed to the brim with dried fruit and Christmas spices, and drowned in vanilla custard.
Palate: A thick mouthfeel, where prominent sherry notes take over over gentle oak with more of those dried fruits and sweet vanilla pod, with a hint of stewed pear and cinnamon spice.
Finish: A lengthy finish, dried fruits and sherried notes remain.
