    Glengoyne 12 Years - Malt of August 2015

    Posted by Le Chardon d'Or

    12YoThis month we have chosen Glengoyne 12 Year Old  Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    The slowest distillation process in Scotland. Six years spent preparing the perfect oak casks before they receive their first drop of spirit. Barley dried by air, never peat. Glengoyne gives you pause to reflect that it's only by investing valuable time and infinite care that you can create something of real worth. Scotland’s slowest distillation process

    Lemon zest, toffee apples – and a scent of coconut, a smell of summer. Hand-selected sherry casks help create this paradise of flavours and rich, golden colour. It’s the taste of Scotland’s slowest distillation

    Glengoyne - it's worth the wait.
