The Glengoyne 50 Year Old comes in a crystal decanter that features an engraved goose emblem representing the geese who migrate to the Glen each winter. The name Glengoyne comes from “Glen Guin’ or “glen of the wild geese’. The whisky is packaged in a beautiful solid oak and gold display box with a 25ml sample of the 50 Year Old whisky, as well an individually numbered book which has been signed by Robbie Hughes, Glengoyne Master Distiller.

Robbie Hughes, Master Distiller at Glengoyne Highland Single Malt, has this to say this about the newest edition to their Fine & Rare collection: “When we first filled hand-selected oak casks with our sweet, fruity, new make spirit back in the late 1960s, The Beatles were only just breaking up, Richard Nixon was US President, and Sesame Street debuted on television. A lot has changed while we’ve been waiting patiently for this unique release.”

Glengoyne 50 Year Old limited-edition single malt is the pinnacle of Glengoyne’s unhurried and uncompromising approach to whisky making, as Scotland’s slowest distilled malt. After five decades patiently maturing, this exceptional whisky has a richness and depth of aromas and flavours rarely encountered.

At 45.8% ABV, the Glengoyne 50 Year Old is deep amber in colour with notes of demerara sugar, walnuts, sweet pipe tobacco, red apples and cloves on the nose. The palate delivers rich, spicy oak bursts, then molasses, treacle and liquorice take centre stage.
