    OLDENZAAL - Friday, September 21, 2018
    Especially for our 100-year anniversary, Robbie Hughes, Distillery Manager at Glengoyne, has selected a barrel. This Single Cask Oloroso Sherry Hogshead is "hand selected" and is a perfect example of craftsmanship. The whisky has an elegant balance between crème brûlée, red apple and rosehip, with a delicious aftertaste. The secret: no peat.
    The official presentation of this special and limited available whisky will take place during the festivities in Oldenzaal on Sunday 7 and Monday 8 October. Visitors will be given priority with regard to allocation.

    This Glengoyne is how I like them (although a bit youngish); perfect alcohol integration, decent body and complex enough to keep you sniffing and sipping for an hour or so. This whisky delivers a variety of oranges combined with caramel and chocolate sweetness. Nicely balanced by wood and spices.

    Strong, but not overwhelming sherry sweetness, a lot of sherry, oak, wood, pepper, comes across much older, the wood is very present, but not bitter. Pretty optimal sherry whisky, especially for its age. Goes over 10 years older.

    Thanks for the sample @BehindSpace, I really like this Glengoyne. Nice Oloroso barrel maturation, less sweet taste, nevertheless fruity with lots of earthy and nutty aromas.

    Very well done for a 12 year old. (I would have bet on a finish in red wine barrels ...)
