Glengoyne Cask Strength 8

Behold, the eighth batch of Glengoyne Cask Strength! These bottlings show off the rich, powerful Glengoyne flavour profile and for this reason, always prove very popular. The previous seven batches have all sold out on MoM. Batch No. 008 was created from malts that were matured in a number of different barrels, with 50% of it coming from refill casks, 30% from first-fill sherry (40% American oak and 60% European oak), 10% first-fill bourbon and 10% Rioja cask.

It will be quite a crowd-pleaser. It boasts plenty of that sherried goodness the distillery is known and adored for while offering something a little different.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose There’s rich oak spice, tannic red grape skins and fresh malt which blends with sweeter notes of buttery toffee popcorn, apple pie, vanilla ice cream and white chocolate buttons.

Palate Stewed fruits, Seville orange and chewy toffee with some warm gingerbread spiciness emerge first, with hints of peaches and cream and caramelised apple underneath. A little earthy clove and black peppercorn add depth among burnt sugar and some tropical fruit.

Finish More cooked orchard fruit lingers with a little bit of chocolatey malt and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Overall A dram that moves in many directions simultaneously, but enough Glengoyne DNA keeps things interesting and prevents it from becoming too muddled.

Reviews for Glengoyne Cask Strength (Batch 8)
Stunning, well priced cask strength
Needs a good drop of water to really get those flavours. It’s smooth, creamy, like the 18. I get the popcorn on the nose, the pallet builds up with spices onto the finish, which can be overwhelming. Half a star off only because I’ve found it difficult to nail the water input. 80/20 I’ve found works best for me.

A well rounded introduction to cask strength whisky.
A well rounded introduction to cask strength whisky, this expression is ideal to progress a new whisky enthusiast from the usual 40-46% abv bottlings.

Perfect for a cold winters evening, I agree with the tasting notes from MoM and would choose this bottle for a dram or six with my Apple crumble on a Sunday evening, although it wouldn’t be long until I moved to a bottle with a little more depth.
