Glenglassaugh Octaves Peated
70cl / 44% abv
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.
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.
