The work in progress series has led us to this 6th release by the Glengyle Distillery. Matured for 10 years this single malt has experience exposure to Sherry wood allowing a richer, fruitier character to develop.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Bold and beautiful. Clear but subtle. European red oak notes, a real sherry matured star.
Palate: The sherry notes goes deeper on the palate. Dark chocolate, dates, prunes, hard toffee, molasses and gingerbread syrup. Honey-bbq coated ribs without any of the smoke.
Finish: This whisky holds a great poise, almost ballerina like. There is a true harmonious balance between all the components in this dram. It has a seamless, resonant finish, echoing in a deep, loving, sherry note.
