Glengoyne Highland Single Malt has been distilled at Glengoyne for nearly 200 years. Using methods passed down for generations, Glengoyne is made with knowledge, passion and craftsmanship.

Unlike most single malts, Glengoyne uses air-dried barley, rather than barley dried with harsh peat smoke, before nursing the spirit through the stills more slowly than any other distillery. The spirit then matures in the finest Spanish and American oak sherry casks, resulting in a uniquely smooth and complex whisky, in which the delicate flavours freely express themselves.

The Glengoyne portfolio includes 10, 12, 17 and 21 Years Old as well as special limited edition bottlings released every year.

Glengoyne 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Just get the feeling that bottling at a slightly higher strength might have given it the kick it needs for the palate to balance the nose.

Glengoyne 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Amazingly fresh for such an oldie. Much prefer this style of Glengoyne to the sherried monsters which tend to drown the distillery character.

Glengoyne Burnfoot
- Scotland - 40.00%
7 Just a little thin and lacking in substance

Glengoyne Glenguin Shiraz Cask Finish
- Scotland - 48.00%
6 More of a fruit squash than a whisky, but use it as a delicious,ready-mixed summer drink.

Glengoyne 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20%
7 Lacks elegance and complexity. Oak dominates, with a bitter grip. Water does not help.

Glengoyne 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A lovely, complex, sophisticated malt.

Glengoyne 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Quite a complex character for its age. The palate is well-structured, just a little too woodframed.

Glengoyne 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80%
7 A nice fresh feel. But alcohol is not tamed. Water cools it down but takes the zesty kick away.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glengoyne 2000 AD
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
9 Delicious example of maltiness in a whisky. I always enjoy Glengoynes very much, but they invariably leave me wanting a little more.

Glengoyne 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 If this were a Lowland malt, it would be a star. As a Highlander, it gets lost.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glengoyne 32 Years Old, Single Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.70%
8 Complex, old, not perfect, but good darned fun!

Glengoyne 37 Years Old, Sherry Butt
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.60%
8 Sweet, filling, rich and satisfying. An impressive afterdinner drop.

Glengoyne Scottish Oak Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.50%
7 A rather eccentric version of Glengoyne. Very distinctive. A digestive after Thai food or even a curry?
