Glengoyne 2004 Distillery Cask 31

I’ve often mentioned my affinity for Glengoyne, but I always attach the condition that it needs some age on it. This is a little on the young side for a Glengoyne, but it is cask strength, and I once had a bottle of the 12-year-old cask strength and it was brilliant (eclipsed only by the old 17yo and 25yo bottlings for me). 173 more words
