Glengoyne 17 Year Old “Very Special” Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Glengoyne is distilled slower than any other single malt Scotch whisky. Using air-dried malted barley, rather than using pungent peat smoke, they nurse the spirit through the stills at around one-third of the normal rate. This creates a more subtle, complex whisky in which all of the delicate flavours are freely allowed to express themselves –

The Real Taste of Malt.

Glengoyne has won a host of prestigious awards from all around the world including Whisky Magazine ‘Best of the Best’ and Golds and Double Golds at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the International Spirits Challenge.

glengoyne-17yrsGlengoyne’s distinctive style carries on improving with age. The same elements are present at 17 years old as they were at 10, only now the balance has artfully changed. A more concentrated, palate of flavours has emerged, though it still retains the same clean, delicate taste as the 10 Years Old. Probably the dram for which they are most famed.

“Remarkably smooth… creamy finish with a very delicate touch of sherry. A lovely, complex, sophisticated malt” by Michael Jackson (Whisky Expert), Whisky Magazine

BLACK NOBLE , A Great Dessert Wine from Riverina, NSW, Australia

Black Noble is made from Botrytised Semillon that is fortified and aged in old oak barrels for an average of eight years. Created by Darren De Bortoli, it was inspired by a 1930’s wine made by Vittorio De Bortoli. The wine is unique but has been compared to wines of the Jerez region of Spain.

The wine has been aged in barrel and is designed for current consumption but will keep in the bottle for several years.

It is a deep amber colour with green gold edges. Concentrated, complex array of flavours and aromas including coffee/toffee and anise with aged character from maturation in oak for an average of 8 years, long luscious finish.
