Glenglassaugh Rare Cask batch 2

Managing Director og Master Distiller Billy Walker har endnu engang været en tur i Portsoy warehouse og fundet otte interessante fade i alderen fra 36 til 42 år, og fået disse aftappet.

Det ældste fad. cask #2125, en 42 år gammel sag, blev distilleret oktober 1972 of afsluttet på et Massandra Madeira Puncheon. Den er aftappet ved 47.3% alc.

Noter på cask #2125:
On the nose, luxurious rich honey infused with allspice floods over roasted apples while, on the palate, crisp toasted oak characters contrast with Madeira poached pears, sultana syrup and a delicate warm spice.

Den yngste af de otte er en 36 års aftapning, destilleret i oktober 1978 og afsluttet på en Port Hogshead. Dette fad, cask #1118/8, er aftappet ved 43.6% alc.
Noter på cask #1118/8
On the nose, there is a delicious harmony of wild red berries and milk chocolate with a black pepper spice and vintage leather background. The palate brings beautifully elegant red fruit preserve dusted with sweet vanilla sugar combines perfectly with warm oak, cinnamon spice and stem ginger syrup.


Sales Director Alistair Walker udtaler: “The BenRiach Distillery Company took over Glenglassaugh distillery in 2013 and we released our first batch of rare casks in April last year. The response on this first batch release was fantastic, with connoisseurs worldwide delighted to get their hands on these aged, extraordinary malts. We are therefore delighted to issue Batch 2 today which comprises another eight magnificent expressions – smooth, warm, characterful and sublime Highland whisky at its finest.”
