New Whisky Release: Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has announced the much-anticipated launch of Cask Strength Batch No. 007.
Published Date: 10th April 2019
Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has announced the much-anticipated launch of Cask Strength Batch No. 007.
The latest release in the Glengoyne Cask Strength series, Cask Strength Batch No. 007 is the first in the collection to feature a small proportion of bourbon barrels in the cask recipe.
Bottled un-chillfiltered at 58.9% ABV, Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 has been crafted using a combination of first-fill European and American oak Oloroso sherry casks, refill casks and bourbon barrels.
Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 boasts a fruity, malty flavour profile, featuring notes of cinnamon, orange, peaches and honey. Its warm amber-gold hue is imparted from time and wood alone. This commitment to natural colour is only possible because of Glengoyne Distillery’s world-class wood policy which sees sherry casks embark on a 6-year journey before Glengoyne’s new-make spirit is filled into the oak.
Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 follows the launch last month of the Glengoyne Legacy Series: Chapter One, the first new global release from Glengoyne Distillery since October 2017.
John Glass, Malt Master at Glengoyne Distillery, said:
“The bourbon parcel we used in the distillation of Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 brought in a sweetness and a burst of vanilla, which adds a roundness and depth to this sherry-dominant whisky. The bourbon plays a light, but important, part in the overall cask recipe.”
Katy Macanna, Brand Manager for Glengoyne, said:
“We’re delighted to announce the launch of Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007, the latest release in our popular Cask Strength series.
“Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 has an intense burst of flavour, yet it retains the sweet and fruity character for which Glengoye’s collection of Highland Single Malt Whiskies is renowned. As with all six in the series before it, Batch No. 007 is a whisky of the purest quality, bottled un-chillfiltered, straight from the cask, having been distilled in the same unhurried way for which Glengoyne is loved.”
Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 007 will retail at £59.99 per 70cl bottle, and will be available to purchase at www.glengoyne.com from Wednesday 10th April 2019.
