Named after the Valley in which the distillery is located, Forgue was hot on the heels of Glendronach's 15 year old re-release earlier this year (for Australia). It's a 10-year-old single malt matured in a combination of oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks, also marking the distillery’s first expression dedicated to Travel Retail.
Appearance: Gold with a reddish tinge. Residue remains on the glass.
Nose: Warm with malt and citrus peel, baking bread, hint of cinnamon and a bit of minerals. There’s also a hint of brown sugar and some wood spices.
Palate: Spicy and viscous, pepper, citrus peel and a hit of green cardamom and some white tea. There’s a bit of the fullness of GlenDronach missing from the palate.
Linger: Citrus rind and white pepper, spices sit around the gullet. It has a long finish with a bit of coffee and a hint of milk chocolate.
