    Actually the re-introduction of a Scottish Oak Wood Finish, previously offered
    several years ago in cask strength format. Most wood used for whisky casks is
    either American White Oak or European Oak, so to find a distiller looking in his
    own back yard for timber is certainly interesting. Coopers will tell you that
    Scottish Oak is harder to work with than either of the more common alternatives,
    and Glengoyne is the only distillery to date that has used its native wood in
    this way. The Scottish Oak Wood Finish has a strong aroma - fresh cut wood,
    brittle toffee and vanilla. Bigger bodied and more complex than some ?standard?
    Glengoynes, nutty, with sweet oak notes. Very well balanced. The finish is long
    and dry; spicy, as the oak makes its presence felt, then tapering off as sweeter
    fudge notes linger. The makers use the word 'robust', and I wouldn?t quibble
    with that.

    A nice Glengoyne, a bit thin though, lacks some punch.
    • Nose
      Honey, ginger and raisins
    • Taste
      Starting a bit feint then catches on with almond, raisins and some anise
    • Finish
      Medium long with pepper and honey

    Scottish Oak Wood Finish

    A fifteen year old limited edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky finished in Scottish oak casks exclusively crafted for the Glengoyne distillery. This imparts a unique robustness without masking the subtle and complex nature of the spirit.
