Uisge Beatha, the Gaelic term commonly undersrtood as the “water of life”, Scotch as we know it today, was created and famous during the 15th century in Scotland which widely spread out to monasteries in Europe. It is how people during these times, would sit down, have a drink and get a sort of a more mature understanding of things without being clear. The concept has a very good sense of mature humor.
Most people collect scotch in a very fastidious manner getting every single details for every single bottle they keep in their collection. The more details they get, the more valuable a bottle becomes. The more aged they are, the more valuable they become. It;’s a simple truth.
It is a tradition that we take out the most expensive bottle in our collection to celebrate, in a greater sense, a festive event or an achievement as a silver lining, after all the hard work and efforts we all put in.
This Christmas, Glengoyne has released their Limited Edition Glengoyne Single Cask from The Russell Family Cask line. Made from 36 years of wisdom and knowledge on hand-selected sherry barrel that was personally selected by 3 generations of IMD owners – Peter after sampling cask number 1549, Leonard and Tom. With an ABV of 50.7% and a fantastic smell of light strawberry and lime sherbet, gentle mint, lemon meringue pie, stewed apples, coconut, sweet cinnamon and leather. It also brings a distinct Silky and rich, creamy with a charming dustiness with tropical fruits, dried banana chips and chocolate cherry to the pallet with a rich gently sherried and spicy finish.
