Glengoyne 36 Year Old Russell Family Cask Description

Three generations of whisky-expertise, finding harmony in one expression. The backstory with this is that it underwent a phenomenal 36 years of aging in a refill sherry butt. The story goes that at a Sunday lunch at Peter Russell’s house, Tom brought some samples for the Glengoyne single cask. This specific cask blew them away. It is the only time that one cask has been unanimously agreed upon as the best. More than that though, they have chosen this bottle to celebrate the three generations of Russell’s master distillers. A very limited release of 402 bottles is available. Distilled in 1984, this was only brought up in 2021. Free from chill filtration, this comes with a cask-imparted colour, as is presented at 50.7% abv.

Light aromas of sherbert, mint, lemon meringue pie, stewed apples, coconut, cinnamon, strawberry and leather arise on the nose. Notes of tropical fruits arrive on a rich, creamy palate, complementing other flavours of chocolate, cherry, and dried banana. The finish is beautifully sherried, spicy, and pleasing. Top-marks.
