Original Tasting Notes.
The original distillery Glengyle was founded by William Mitchell in the year 1873 and produced a typical malt whisky half a century before it closed the gates in 1925.
Around the turn of the millennium the descendants decided to rebuild the distillery and the production houses were ready in 2002.
The reopening could be celebrated at the 25.03.04. This bottling was filled eight years after the opening.
