A coastal distillery which was once forgotten, now re-awakened, has unearthed a Limited Release series of contemporary Highland Single Malt Scotch whiskies, offering a unique voyage of discovery into a distillery reinvigorated.
The latest additions to our series represent a new chapter for Glenglassaugh and include our distillery’s first ever wood finish expressions. The wood finishes series features four distinct styles: a Port Wood Finish, a Peated Port Wood Finish, a Pedro Ximinez Sherry Wood Finish and a Peated Virgin Oak Wood Finish.
Glenglassaugh’s waves of fruit and smoke are amplified in Peated Port Wood Finish. Whilst finishing in ruby Port pipes, the open structure of the oak brings waves of velvet tannins and peppered dark fruit, reminiscent of Winter berries by an open fire, kissed by the sea.
Colour: Rose gold.
Nose: Heather honey drizzled over a medley of fresh red fruits, all backed by intriguing waves of sweet peat smoke.
Palate: Delicious wild red berry compote and clotted cream balanced by a hint of cracked black pepper, surrounded by a fantastic sweet campfire peat note.
Our Tasting Notes:
Nose: Red cherry, fruity liquorice, aromatic berry fruit tea, redcurrant and rosemary jelly, stewed plums, rhubarb cordial or even rhubarb and custard sweets and waves of elegant peat smoke.
Palate: Stewed rhubarb over an earthy forest fruit bonfire, crunchy red berries, strawberry laces, cherry sweets, peppery oak and hints of menthol and rosemary.
Finish: Smoked red cherry, peppery, anise, crunchy port wood tannins, salted rhubarb, spicy watermelon and lingering smoke and vanillin.
Like liquid bakewell tart by a bonfire, another superb new release from this revived distillery that goes from strength to strength.
