Light golden – a colour that shows the craftsmanship of Glengyle achieving a beautiful glowing colour without adding colouring.

Initially hints of vanilla. If you take a deep nose it gets spicy and the oak notes come through.

The palate is complex and rich. There is a pleasant smoothness on the palate that adds a slight saltiness if kept in the mouth.

The whisky has a sustaining finish that reveals the sherry involved.
