Highland single malt Glengoyne has launched the latest batch in its Teapot Dram series.

Batch No. 007, which is limited to 3,993 bottles, has been matured in 10 first-fill Oloroso sherry casks in the dunnage warehouses of Glengoyne. According to the company, ‘no other whisky in the brand’s portfolio [is] matured in this way’.

The whisky promises red apples, demerara sugar and chocolate Turkish delight as well as a tangy Seville marmalade, cinnamon, cloves and rich, dark cocoa.

The Teapot Dram series was created in tribute to an old Glengoyne Distillery tradition: until the 1970s, workers would be given three fingers of whisky, three times each day. The less seasoned stillmen would, to save face, discreetly pour some of their untouched drams into a copper teapot.

Katy Muggeridge, senior brand manager at Ian Macleod Distillers, said: ‘Each batch has its own… character, having been... nurtured and selected at its prime, and Batch No. 007 is no exception. Luscious and mouth-coating, it may even be our best batch yet and certainly one which we know our fans will be raving over.’
