Product Description

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.

The elemental freshness of our coastal spirit is invigorated in Glenglassaugh Port Wood finish. Whilst finishing in ruby Port pipes, the oak’s open structure combines with the influence of the sea, as waves of dark fruit ebb in synchrony with fresh mint and fruit zest. For a moment, you may find yourself picking berries in a herb garden, enlivened by the sea.

Aged for 5 years in Ex-Bourbon casks and then a final year in Port wood.

Colour: Pure copper.

Nose: Delightful aromas of brittle toffee, blueberries and a touch of garden mint. Gentle allspice adds a delicate warmth to the nose.

Palate: Vibrant pink grapefruit and blood orange give a fantastic fresh, zest character.

Finish: A slight herbal oak background leads to stewed barley in the long, crisp finish.
