English Merchants' Choice

A stunning sherry matured Glengoyne, selected by a group of England's whisky retailers. The cask was number 2716, a sherry hogshead. There are just 291 bottles of this incredibly dark whisky, and they're likely to sell out fast!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Deep dark sherry as expected, with a ripe selection of prune juice, varnished oak and molasses. Develops on tangy hints of gooseberry and a little orange liqueur. Actually reminds us very much of Pyrat XO! Some vanilla and Peychaud’s bitters appear after a few minutes in the glass.

Palate Huge, syrupy and rich. There’s a note that if stronger might be sulphur, but is just muted enough to add a fantastic dimension of Porcini mushrooms alongside the sterling barrage of rum spice, freshly cracked black pepper, Tiramisu and banana cake.

Finish Long and increasingly tangy with puckering fruit, hints of dried chili and various barks.

Overall We love this style of whisky – it’s not over-aged, but juicy and full of character.

Christmas in a glass
A truly memorable dram! This whisky is immense with a nose overflowing of all the best bits of Christmas. Beautifully soft and round and yet powerful and spicey a the same time. Very well finished for what is really quite a young whisky. Can't wait to sip this by the fire on Christmas night :-)

Tried this with a friend of mine. Big WOW on the nose. We both took our time before actually taking a sip. Color is unbelievable and the first sip wakes up your whole palate. Very, very spicy. Astringent on the finish. Water tames it a bit and brings out a dark chocolate note, but I wouldn't add too more than a few drops to an ounce; it takes away some of the more vital notes. Glad I could try this very bold whisky.
