Glengoyne 10 Year Old Doddie'5 Dram - Signed Description

This isn’t just any Glengoyne 10 Year Old; this limited-edition features an illustration of Doddie on the bottle label and has been aptly-named ‘Doddie’s Dram’.

This release was the result of a collaboration between former Scottish rugby player Finlay Calder and Ian Macleod’s Gordon Doctor in coming up with a special release bottling for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. The packaging was also kindly donated, and 600 bottles were created for use by the Foundation to sell, auction off and use at prizes at events.

As for the liquid itself, this 10-year-old is a Highland single malt from Glengoyne Distillery, which has one of the slowest distillations in Scotland. Matured for ten years in hand-selected American and European oak sherry casks, this expression is bottled at a strength of 40% abv.

Aromas are light and fresh with cut grass, creamy vanilla and floral aspects. The palate is rich in barley and green apples with toffee popcorn and brazil nuts, with the finish then turning soft and sweet with a touch of liquorice and oak.

What could be better than your favourite dram in a bespoke bottling? Doddie fans, you don’t want to let this one slip away!

Each winner of a bottle from Doddie's auction will receive two complimentary Glencairn glasses, branded with the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation logo (pictured on homepage)!

Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career.

Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.

In November 2017 Doddie and his Trustees launched the registered charity My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Its aims are simple: to raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neuron Disease and investigate potential cures; to make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
