Product Description

Widely regarded as one of the best value for money new releases of 2016 and the first 12 year old malt to be released by the Glengyle distillery in Campbeltown after being established in 2004 by the same owners of the Springbank distillery.

Nose: Starts off very light and delicate but then reveals itself slowly with notes of freshly cut flowers, salty coastal nuances, fresh pink grapefruit, lemon barley squash, mint turkish delight, green herbs, natural yoghurt and heather honey.

Palate: Fresh grapefruit with white pepper and sea salt, dried apricot, pear drops and some oily, menthol, vanilla, almond and fizzy citrus.

Finish: Home made lemonade, smoked sugared almonds, white pepper, salted white grapefruit, lime, mint/herbs, vanilla wafers and some oily coastal sea spray notes.

Delicate yet multi-layered and very well made and thought out 12 year old offering from a distillery i expect great things from in the coming years.

90.5 points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible

"A malt far more comfortable at this age than some of the previous, younger bottlings from a few years back. Has a fragile feel to it and the air of a malt which must be treated gently and with respect."
