Glengoyne Teapot Dram Batch #6
An incredibly popular Glengoyne, this is the sixth batch of the Teapot Dram.
The name of the expression relates to a 150 year tradition at the distillery, wherein the Brewer would select a different cask in the warehouse each week for the workers to receive a dram 3 times a day, at 9am, midday and 3pm. The agreed share was for it to be no more than three fingers measured from the base of the tumbler, with the colleague in possession of the chubbiest fingers usually chosen for the job. Go figure. So large were some of these drams, that often the less hardy souls were unable to finish theirs, with the leftovers decanter into a copper teapot for some of the more seasoned drinkers to imbibe a little extra from throughout the day.
Matured in first-fill Oloroso sherry casks, this is one of 2772 bottles.
