Proof66 Notes

Glengoyne 15yr single malt scotch is a limited edition scotch finished in Scottish Oak casks (versus the typical American oak). It appears to have been re-introduced in 2012 and aged in sherry casks. 

Glengoyne Distillery became official (that is, legal) in 1833 but they claim more than 200 years of experience based upon illicit distilling that was rife in the area due to heavy taxes. George Connell operated and owned the distillery in those early years but it changed hands a few times through the 20th century to end up with Ian McLeod Distillers in 2003. Glengoyne takes its name for "Glen Guin" or "glen of the wild geese" according to the website. The distillery gets its water from a small stream flowing off of the Dumgoyne Hill and feeding into Loch Lomond. They claim the water adds "a very delicate flavor" to the whisky. Glengoyne takes pride in air drying their barley rather than using "harsh peat smoke." They are unusual in providing scotch without the typical and signature peat reek or smoky flavor.
