Glengoyne English Merchants' Choice

English Merchants' Choice Bottling Note

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.
