Commenting on the new batch of single cask releases, Alistair Walker, Sales Director at the BenRiach Company, said: “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.”
All eight of the new Glenglassaugh single cask releases will be available globally from specialist retailers, later this month.
