Ian Macleod Distillers has unveiled two limited-edition Glengoyne single malts. It is producing 296 bottle s of a 14 Year Old and 592 of a 20 Year Old. The company says a hand-picked team of experts convened at the distillery and the expressions were personally approved by distillery manager Robbie Hughes.

The 14 Year Old, which was aged in American oak sherry hogshead, is said to smell like a runaway dessert trolley doused in sherry, while the 20 Year Old, which was aged in Spanish oak sherry butts, boasts notes of rosehip syrup, sherry, raisins, pepper, marzipan and almonds.

They join the 10 Year Old, 12 Year Old cask strength, 17 and 21 Year Old.
