About the Whiskey:

Inspired by Sir Arthur John Tedder – The Exciseman stationed at Glengoyne defining the rules of Scotch whisky, inspired by our distillery.

March 2nd 1908 – He was first witness at the Royal Commission on Whiskey* and other potable spirits. A royal commission to determine the very concept of what whisky was. On one side was the purists who only thought Pot Still whisky was whisky and on the other side Blenders who thought grain and malt whisky combined was whisky. The Scots and the blenders won the day after 37 sittings; This was seen as the sensible outcome. Blends could still be called Whisky and called Scotch if distilled in Scotland.

We will use this exceptional whisky to celebrate Tedder’s influence in defining what should make a great Scotch during his time stationed at Glengoyne – defining the rules to which we still distil to this day. Tedder would be proud of this exceptional whisky – bottled using some of the very finest American oak sherry casks in our Glengoyne warehouses – and we thank him as the attention to detail and his exacting standards not only creates rules the whole industry follows today, but it inspired the people of Glengoyne to constantly pursue perfection, and helping to create the Unhurried Glengoyne Way.

Tasting Notes:

NOSE: On the nose, signature Glengoyne deep sherry notes which accompany our distinctive cinnamon sticks and vanilla aromas.  A very pleasing combination of mixed berry jam and apple strudel intertwine revealing some pear. 

PALATE: On the palate, a rich luxurious body that’s satisfyingly chewy with warm boozy raisins combining with spiced buns slowly giving way to tarte tatin and smooth cream sherry. 

FINISH: The finish is light and fruity, which deepens with hints of pineapple, dried fruits, dark chocolate and lingering spice finish are the aromatic ‘legacy’ of this wonderful dram before you reach for the bottle and go back for more.


"My favorite of The Legacy Series so far, the Glengoyne Chapter Three combines freshness, sweetness and a subtle spiciness. It delivers on balance between each of these components and would be a very pleasant sipping whisky. I could see this ending up on the table during an evening with friends." - Words Of Whisky

"The nose showcases quite a lot of sherry character with deep, sweet notes of dark berry jam, sugared almonds, and sticky vanilla bean. A subtle thread of smoke, gentle and smoldering, weaves throughout, complementing a soft baking spice and honeyed malt foundation. Light-bodied on the palate, there’s an almost airy quality to this whisky with the pronounced sherry character being the primary thing tying it firmly to the ground. Notes of dark raisin, Medjool dates, and blackberry present a rich profile. A bit of marshmallow fluff and cinnamon sugar emerge before the finish arrives and continues this whisky’s well-sherried march across the palate with more dark berry notes and a bit of orange oil." - Drinkhacker
