Product Description

A 1975 vintage 40 Year Old single cask Glenglassaugh single malt distilled before its two decades of closure with only 588  bottleds produced from a single Madeira Wine Puncheon.

Nose: Baked goods, dense fruitcake, roasted coffee beans, ripe figs in dark aromatic honey, ginger latte.

Palate: Big and juicy delivery of sultana, fig and dates with mocha, coffee grounds and ripe white stone fruits in stock syrup and greek honey.

Finish: Sun baked orchard fruits, orange rind, fig jam, sticky stem ginger and coffee soaked sponge fingers (Tiramisu?)

A stunning example of how great single malts that were ignored because they were too rich and powerful for blending in the 1980's survived to be bottled as this mellow and moreish rarity.

A real gem from this now reborn distillery that i expect great things from again in the future.
