For Chapter One, the story is told of how Cochrane Cartwright (Glengoyne distillery manager from 1869) arrived at the distillery and slowed the whole production process down even further to maximise sweet, fruity flavour and importantly, began maturing in sherry casks.
A heart of first-fill European oak oloroso sherry casks, combined with a portion of refill casks which allow the Glengoyne house style to shine through. Chapter One of The Legacy Series will be bottled un-chillfiltered at 48%. The whisky itself in Chapter One has a core of first fill European oak oloroso sherry casks combined with a strong proportion of refill casks which allow the sweet, fruity house style of Glengoyne to shine through.
