GLENGLASSAUGH Torfa 50%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 51634
GLENGLASSAUGH has launched a new richly peated Highland single malt that will now be part of its core range along with Revival and Evolution. . Its name takes its inspiration from the Old Norse language with which the Scots dialect spoken in North East Scotland has an affinity and translates to “turf” or “peat”. Fully matured in ex-bourbon barrels and peated to 20ppm, this is a unique expression and quite different to the usual type of whisky produced in the Highlands.
- Appearance : gleaming yellow gold.
- Nose : vivid, sweet, sooty campfire smoke and sea air infuse zest of lime, apricot jam and ripe soft fruits, all gently warmed by hints of stem ginger and cracked black pepper.
- Palate : an eloquent, sweet coastal peat smoke engulfs candied peel over melon, pineapple and roasted red apples. Oat biscuits, hints of heather honey and a gentle cigar box spice all combine to give a terrific balance to the expressive smoky character.
- Overall : a heady, yet elegant harmony of distinct coastal peat and striking spiced fruit flavours.
- The brand
Closed in 1986, Glenglassaugh was bought in 2008 by The Scaent Group, a company better known in the world of energy than in the world of whisky. Altogether, renovation work included, the operation cost around seven million pounds. As the majority of the stock still available was essentially over 30 years old, in 2008 the decision was made for Glenglassaugh to begin again from scratch. Under the initiative of its new owners, various versions of its new make spirit were launched alongside some very respectable releases dating back to the end of the 1960s. Bottlings from this distillery are extremely rare, both in terms of its official bottlings and those released by independent bottlers.
