The second bottling in Glengoyne's Legacy series honours Peter Russell, chairman and founder of Ian Macleod Distillers, which bought Glengoyne in 2003. Chapter Two was matured in a combination of casks: 5% first-fill European oak sherry, 12% first-fill American oak sherry, 48% first-fill bourbon and 35% refill hand-selected quality oak before being bottled in September 2020. Naturally coloured and bottled at 48%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Full of vanilla and banana, maple syrup, peaches, coconut, fruit soaked trifle sponge, hint of lime and mint.
Palate: Creamy and well balanced, apple crumble, honey drizzled toast, green grape and gentle spice.
Finish: Richness builds in the warming finish, syrupy with hints of sweet oak and dates.
