Douglas McGibbon Provenance Glengoyne 2007 (7 year old) 46%

A little feinty and hard with toasted biscuits and cereal. Oily and slightly cardboardy with hints of earth.

The palate shows some softer barley and cereal with a touch of apricot and citrus. Medium length with the youthful oily notes lingering along with the citrus and barley.

Douglas McGibbon Provenance Glendullan 1999 (11 year old) 46%

Bourbon/ Code: PRV0708/ Dist: Oct 1999 Btl: June 2011/ Tasted: June 2011

A pleasant, easy going nose of sugar coated herbal honey and white flowers along with some spicy oak and a touch of high toned cereal. The palate begins quite sugary, followed by sweet malt and a hint of oat biscuit. Relatively straightforward but pleasant with a touch of herbal honey and citrus. The alcohol bites and cleanses leaving a lemony finish.
