Macallan “Estate” and Glengoyne 25 Year Old at K&L California – Scotch Whisky News

Macallan “Estate” Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)


Whisky Advocate

  Distilled with a portion of barley grown on the distillery’s Easter Elchies estate. The nose detects quite intense sherry, plus black forest cake, then warm leather and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Full sherry notes on the palate, with new leather, marzipan, cherry liqueur, furniture polish, and dark chocolate. The finish yields bitter chocolate, licorice, nutmeg, and tingling wood spices. (GS, Fall 2019) 

K&L Notes

The Macallan Estate is a tribute to the heritage and home of the Macallan, the Easter Elchies Estate. This special whisky, containing rare spirit distilled from estate-grown barley, delivers a spiritual tour of the property on which one of Scotland’s greatest brands was built. It balances fresh citrus notes of the estate barley with the traditional sherried richness of nicely aged Macallan, resulting in a complex single malt with an extraordinarily long finish.

Glengoyne 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)


90 points Whisky Advocate

  The latest addition to Glengoyne’s permanent range is a 25 year old, matured in European oak sherry casks and presented in non-chill filtered format. Syrup-like on the nose, very sweet, with milk chocolate, ginger, Jaffa oranges, and sticky toffee pudding. Smooth and sweet on the palate, with overt sherry, sultanas, and gentle spice. The finish is medium to long, with a hint of oak, old leather, and lingering cloves. Bold, yet elegant. (GS, Fall 2014) 

K&L Notes

Glengoyne is one of Scotland’s most underrated distilleries, and they have made a commitment to revamping their image into one of the highest-quality malts available. Distilled using no peat – the barley is dried with hot air. Matured entirely in traditional Oloroso sherry casks.
