Glengoyne 25 Year Old
The Highlands distillery uses unpeated malt for this whisky, which is then matured for a quarter of a century in Sherry casks. The nose has big notes of sherry-soaked fruit up front - raisins, figs and oranges. This is followed by wafts of toasted almonds and classic notes of old leather. The palate that follows has oodles of vanilla and dark chocolate. Sherry comes through yet again, but this time in the shape of rich, well spiced fruit cake. Hints of orange and oak round it off.
