The Highland distillery is well known
amongst whisky enthusiasts for its
sherry style single malt and so fans of
the whisky wont be disappointed as the
new 30 year old expression is a
combination of 33% first fill European
oak sherry butts and 66% specially
selected refill sherry butts.
Glengoyne tell me that this combination
of first fill and refill sherry butts
has produced a whisky with: "a striking
rich chestnut colour, imparted from time
and wood alone, this exquisite malt
boasts tangy flavours of plum compote,
cinnamon and cloves".
Glengoyne's distillery manager Robbie
Hughes commented on the new whisky,
saying: "We are delighted with the
exceptional quality and taste of the
Glengoyne 30 Year Old, it has certainly
been worth the wait!
"The refill butts impart plenty of
flavour and colour but do not dominate
or overpower our spirit with too much
oak. They also tend to be fresher and
fruitier, good for balancing the
richness and weight of the sherry casks,
adding pleasant top notes and
complexity. In this instance, the task
was finding the right mix of refill cask
to best showcase the sherry exceptional
Oloroso sherry casks we spent six years
sourcing, ensuring incredible colour and
an exceptional flavour profile.

an oak and rose gold bung and a hessian
square, the outer casing reflects the
traditional cask sampling method
employed by Glengoyne Distillery.
anything to go by, fans of the Highland
distillery should be in for a treat. The
new Glengoyne 30 Year Old is non
chill filtered and bottled at 46.8% ABV
it will be available from specialist whisky shops such as
