Bottled at 50% without an age statement this youthful peated expression of Glenglassaugh matured in Ex-Bourbon. This was just the third official release of Glenglassaugh distilled and bottled since it reopened. It was featured on Day 15 of KWM Whisky Advent 2017.

Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: big, malty and savoury; a big hit of salted caramel, candied apply and brown sugar melting on warm homemade oatmeal; a touch of decadent spice and marmalade.

Palate: still big, brash and malty; there is a surge of tarry-oily-peat on the palate; Dutch licorice and salted caramel with dried orange peel and cloves; more decadent spice and marmalade; still sugary with more melting brown sugar.

Finish: clean, smoky and malty with more salted caramel.

Comment: I swear the recipe for this whisky is evolving as the maturing spirit at the distillery ages; it is richer, more complex and peatier than I recall; it also tastes a lot peatier than 20ppm!

Distillery's Tasting Note

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.

Finish: A heady, yet elegant harmony of distinct coastal peat and striking spiced fruit flavours.
Torfa is a new single malt from Glenglassaugh to be treasured and savoured in quiet moments.
