Glengoyne Cuartillo 1000ml
From the sublime Spirit of Oak range (originally released for the Travel Retail market) comes Cuartillo, another super sherry-aged single malt from Glengoyne which was named after the rural neighbourhood, or pagos*, in Jerez, Spain.
The first in the series of four bottlings, this bottling was based around whisky drawn from American oak Oloroso sherry casks, bottled without any additional colouring at 40% ABV.
Nose: Toffee apples, a little acacia honey and toasted barley initially, with dried peels and soft spice in the background.
Palate: The palate begins with creamy vanilla, nectarines in syrup and spice and a touch of espresso. Butterscotch, stem ginger and chocolate orange bring depth.
Finish: An oily finish concludes with a little oak spice.
Alcohol Vol. 40%
