Glengoyne recently introduced the third and final single malt expression in its Legacy Series.
A statement from the Scotch whisky maker explained that The Glengoyne Legacy Series: Chapter Three is the story of Sir Arthur John Tedder, an excise officer at the distillery.
Sir Tedder was a resident at The Customs House at the Distillery between 1889 and 1893, in a two-story building that is now used for malt intake. And he is known to have pioneered what’s described as the distillery’s “unhurried” approach to whisky making, shaping Glengoyne as it’s known today.
Chapter 3 is bottled at 48% ABV, and the distiller’s notes show that it delivers aromas of creamy vanilla, followed by spicy cinnamon and mixed berry notes, cutting through a base of apple strudel and juicy pears.
The whisky features a rich, fruity flavor profile, with tastes of boozy raisins and spiced buns giving way to the caramel taste of Tarte Tatin and cream sherry.
The finish is light and fruity, which deepens with hints of pineapple, dried fruits, dark chocolate, and lingering spice.
“As our Legacy Series unfolds, each chapter represents an important part of our bold and unique history and as the final chapter, this provides a unique opportunity for consumers to complete the set of this limited release,” said Barbara Turing, Glengoyne’s brand manager.
“Chapter Three is incredibly special and pays homage to Sir Tedder and the vital role he played in defining Glengoyne’s commitment to unhurried excellence. Glengoyne Distillery is known for its dedication to craft and time, one which has led us to becoming an award-winning Scotch whisky, and we owe so much to Sir Tedder for that,” she added.
The Glengoyne Legacy Series: Chapter Three will be available globally, as well as at the distillery shop and website, for a suggested retail price of £69.99 per 70cl bottle.
