Glengoyne Legacy Two Bottling Note

It's the second chapter in Glengoyne's Legacy series! This one was dedicated to Peter Russell, chairman and founder of Ian Macleod Distillers, which bought Glengoyne in 2003. A trio of casks make up this fruity expression, specifically 48% was aged in first-fill bourbon barrels, with 17% in first-fill sherry casks and 35% in oak refill casks.

It’s a deliberate contrast to Chapter One, which was matured in first-fill European oak oloroso sherry casks as well as refill casks. This is a great example of how bourbon casks can make Glengoyne distillate shine and a fantastic demonstration of the distillery's wood management policy.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Buttery pastry filled with cooked apple and a dash of baking spice with notes of tinned peaches, papaya and toffee in support. There’s a hint of white chocolate and raspberry blondies in the backdrop with earthy vanilla, autumnal leaves and candied lemon peel.

Palate: Pear drops, sweet vanilla pod and a kick of cinnamon, with buttery lemon shortbread, dried herbs, red apples and a little lime marmalade in support.

Finish: Exceptionally long and mellow with a pleasant prickle of spice.

Overall: A pleasant dram with moments of real depth complex whisky that shows distillery character and cask in harmony. Impressive stuff.

Glengoyne The Legacy Series Chapter Two Reviews


Guessing this is around the five year mark in age which is quite ok given the high calibre of spirit and barrel type selections utilised. Appreciate the natural colour and decent 48% abv. Lovely strong malty flavour and depth of aroma. This type of Whisky is very rare to come across at this price point so full marks to all involved.

Another great Chapter in the Legacy series

Well-balanced honeyed scotch. Splash of water helps bring out flavours. Glengoyne lovers will likely enjoy this one!

A disaster of a dram

Tastes very acidic, tastes unpleasant.
