    Burnfoot is a new expression of Glengoyne, and it is so named because the
    Stirlingshire distillery was established as Burnfoot by George Connell in 1833.
    Imaginatively packaged, using fluorescent colour and contemporary typography,
    Burnfoot carries no age statement, but contains Glengoyne single malt whiskies
    up to 34 years old. According to Iain Weir, of owners Ian Macleod Distillers,
    ?We tasked our most talented young blender in conjunction with our distillery
    manager to prepare Burnfoot. Using a healthy percentage of first fill Sherry
    casks, it offers a slightly smoother and sweeter taste than certain other
    variants in the Glengoyne range, but at the same time retains the distinctive
    qualities and depth of the whisky. It is therefore ideally positioned to appeal
    directly to whisky drinkers new to the Glengoyne brand.? The nose is sweet and
    fruity, with a suggestion of fresh paper towels in a washroom dispenser. Water
    releases soft notes of honey, vanilla and a hint of Sherry. Smooth on the
    palate, with soft fruits, almonds, Sherry and a note of oak. The finish is
    medium in length, with Sherry and caramel.
