Glenglassaugh Octaves Peated Description

This expression from the Speyside distillery takes its name from the octave casks used during maturation. 

The oak casks are 1/8th the size of a regular butt meaning that the spirit has more surface area to interact with the wood of the cask. The peated expression is non chill-filtered, with no artificial colouring and is bottled at 44% abv. 

Hamish Says

Nose: clotted cream and apple crumble with delicious waves of sweet heather burning on a hillside.

Palate: contrasts the warmth of cracked pepper with apricot jam and plums.

Finish: delicate and sweet from the interaction of Highland peat with the oak casks.
