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.
