Glenglassaugh 50 Year Old Description
It’s not every day you get to announce a 50 year old single malt, never mind one of the rarest expressions to ever arrive from the distillery. This Glengassaugh is exactly that. Only 264 bottles have been made, and it has been bottled at 40.1% abv. The expression has spent 50 years maturing in the distillery’s warehouses and has even survived the distillery closing down!
Thankfully its rest was undisturbed, and it got its due reward by being finished in none other than Pedro Ximénez sherry casks from Andalucía, Spain. Now that’s what we call ending with a flourish! A special whisky from one of the most outstanding Highland distilleries, each bottle of this will have world-wide attention put toward it.
Nose: blackberry, figs.
Palate: caramelised pear, almonds, refined oak, cherries.
Finish: oak, tropical notes, ocean breeze salinity.
