Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has released Batch No. 6 of its Cask Strength expression -  the first ever expression in the series that has been 100% matured in sherry oak casks.

Bottled un-chillfiltered at its natural strength of 59.8%, Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 6 has been created from a combination of first fill European oak sherry casks, American oak sherry butts and refill sherry butts.

Katy Macanna, Brand Manager for Glengoyne, owned by Ian MacLeod Distillers, said: "We are absolutely delighted to introduce Cask Strength No. 6, the first ever exclusively sherry oak-matured expression in the Cask Strength Series.  As tradition dictates for the Glengoyne Collection, this single malt has a deep golden colour, created by time and cask alone.

"This most pure of expressions, with its unwavering quality and intense flavours of demerara sugar and gooseberry, imparted from years in sherry oak casks, is sure to delight whisky lovers around the world."

Tasting Notes:
Appearance: Amber gold.
Nose: Ripe banana, warm baked custard, peppered strawberries, digestive biscuits, soft oak and a short sherbet tingle.
Taste: Thick rosehip syrup, Demerara sugar developing into a spicy, gooseberry dryness. Wonderful balance, nothing dominates. Splash of water brings intensified syrup and green fruits.
Finish: Very long.

Glengoyne Cask Strength Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Batch No. 6), is priced at an RRP of £54.99/70cl, 59.8% ABV and is available from www.glengone.com.
