... the most lowland highlander Malt in Scotland !
Quite lowland in it's style and this is further influenced by the claim that no peat is used in the malting process.
Quality barley types are claimed to contribute to the finish of this Malt and this reputation is rounded off by being a pretty distillery in a very pretty location, like Edradour, but different.
The malt itself is grainy, soft-barley, soft spiced and when good, it's good, when bad, it's ........ !.
One problem seems to be a legitimate 'craft' claim followed up by a pointless 'brand' presentation.
Glengoyne 17 y.o. 88/100

Feb'10 - an ongoing interesting wee Distillery which now sells 'Futures' Casks of Malt, and remains Craft orientated although not 100% yet !
