Spirit of Oak is a four-part travel retail offering from Glengoyne Distillery, each expression a chapter of the story of their exceptional sherry oak casks. Glengoyne is involved in every stage - from selection to drying and seasoning – an entire six-year journey from the oak forest to the Dumgoyne Highland Distillery.
For centuries, the winemakers of Balbaína have prized sherry wood above all others. Glengoyne Balbaina is a Highland single malt whisky with rich depth; the result of careful maturation in hand-selected first-fill European oak Olorosso sherry casks. The choice of European oak brings an intense and spicy character, as it matures in stone-built warehouses at Dumgoyne, Scotland.
Tasting Note: Rich amber colour. Warm on the nose with spiced raisin, biscuit, maple syrup and cloves. Taste of brown sugar with dried apple, toffee and sherry richness. Dry finish with soft oak, ground spice and citrus.
