Glengoyne Legacy Series: Chapter One

Ian Macleod Distillers released its first new global expression of Glengoyne in almost two years earlier this week (February 18).

The Glengoyne Legacy Series: Chapter One represents the first in a series of annual releases from Glengoyne Distillery, each of which will tell the stories of the distillery’s history and its people over the past two centuries.

Chapter One reveals the story of Glengoyne’s distillery manager from 1869, Cochrane Cartwright, who slowed down distillation to a third of the industry average and introduced sherry casks to the distillery.

In a nod to Cartwright, the first edition, Chapter One, is bottled un-chill filtered at 48% ABV and is matured in first-fill European Oloroso sherry casks. It is said to feature notes of toffee, warm pear, spicy cinnamon and vanilla.
