Glenglassaugh - Aged Over 40 YearsRare Cask Series
A powerful whisky, reminiscent of the finest rich fruit cake with a medley of fruits and spices. Natural cask strength, non-chillfiltered, no colour added and bottled on site at Glenglassaugh distillery.
Colour: Deep mahogany.
Nose: Citrus and oak dominate the nose but there is so much more: fruity notes of fat cherries, over-ripe yams, grapes, floral notes and sweet vanilla. There is molasses and hickory notes too.
Palate: It is silky, deep, rich and mellow in the mouth with loads of marmalade, juicy dates, burnt raisins, smooth bitter chocolate and Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee notes, mocha too. There's a whiff of peat and fine, delicate smoke.
Finish: A long, fine, firm finish.
