Glengoyne 11 Year Old (2008) - Provenance by Douglas Laing
Provenance marks the first series in Douglas Laing and Co's Exceptional Single Casks journey. For Provenance, DLC bottle extraordinary Single Cask Single Malts from a vast range of Scotland’s Whisky Distilleries. Each bottling is offered to you “as natural as it gets” – at 46% alcohol strength or higher, and without colouring or chill-filtration. Casks tend to be refill which helps to highlight each distilleries unique character.
Not far north of Glasgow, under the iconic hill of Dumgoyne is the scenic Glengoyne distillery. They fancy that they have the slowest distillation in Scotland, and indeed attempts are made to ensure maximisation of copper contact to ensure the resultant new-make is gentle, sweet, and an ethereally fruity new make.
This malt was distilled in 2008 and matured for 11 years in a single refill hogshead.
From the bottler: "Thick, creamy and vanilla'd initially then come sugar-coated strawberries. Lingers sweetly with grist, honeycomb, nutmeg and cinnamon." CSL
