Ian Macleod Distillers

Stand: C02, Basement 2

There’s a new Glengoyne Scotch whisky to be discovered at Ian Macleod Distillers’ stand this year. The Glengoyne Spirit of the Oak Collection is a global travel retail­-exclusive series, designed to communicate the story behind the distiller’s Sherry oak casks, which journey from forest to coopers in southern Spain, then on to the distillery at Dumgoyne, Scotland.

The four expressions that comprise the collection are Cuartillo, Balbaína, Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish and the 28 Year Old. After ageing in first­-fill American oak oloroso Sherry casks, Cuartillo is described as having flavours of toffee, apricots and vanilla, with a hint of cinnamon, while Balbaína is said to be full of rich brown sugar, raisins, dried apple and cloves, thanks to its time in first­-fill European oak Sherry casks. Glengoyne Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish is “rich and intense”, with fresh oak, spice and a touch of caramel sugar.

The 28 Year Old, meanwhile, is said to be “complex and deep”, with fruit and spice evident following 28 years in first-­fill oloroso Sherry casks.
