70cl / 42.9% abv
Glenglassaugh was founded in 1875 by Colonel James Moir. Located on the Banffshire Coast, one mile west of the fishing village of Portsoy, Glenglassaugh is a true coastal distillery, and looks out over the white sandy beach of Sandend Bay. The distillery is just outside the Speyside region in the North East of Scotland making it a Highland distillery. The Glenglassaugh 1978 cask number 1810 was matured over 35 years and finished in the finest Port Hogshead. This expression is part of the Batch 1 release of single casks. It is non chill filtered and of natural colour. This single malt captures red fruit notes spiced with gentle blackpepper corns.
Nose: Raspberry jam and cream on the machir on a summer's morning.
Palate: Rich with red fruits and cloves, gentle sweet spices coming to the fore.
Finish: Long and rich, a heavenly pairing of gean trees and almonds.
