|Glenglassaugh launches its first ever wood finish expressions|
Glenglassaugh Peated Virgin Oak Wood Finish, has been finished in American Virgin Oak casks, and is said to bring alive the sweet earthiness of the distillery’s coastal peated spirit.
Glenglassaugh Pedro Ximenez Sherry Wood Finish, has been finished in Pedro Ximenez casks, and is said to imbue the whisky with sun-dried warmth, reminiscent of a richly baked fruit dessert, spiced by the sea.
Glenglassaugh Peated Port Wood Finish, has been finished in ruby Port pipes, and is said to deliver waves of velvet tannins and peppered dark fruit to the whisky, reminiscent of winter berries by an open fire, kissed by the sea.
Glenglassaugh Port Wood Finish, has been finished in ruby Port pipes, which is said to invigorate the whisky and deliver waves of dark fruit, fresh mint and fruit zest.
Commenting on the launch, Rachel Barrie Glenglassaugh’s Whisky Maker, said: “The release of Glenglassaugh’s first ever Wood Finish range marks a new chapter for this elemental distillery. As surf crashes on Sandend Bay and invigorating North Sea air passes through our warehouses, Glenglassaugh matures first in American ex bourbon casks, before changing course in either Virgin Oak, Pedro Ximenez or Port wood, on a voyage shaped by the sea.”
All four bottles of Glenglassaugh’s new wood finish bottlings, will be available later this month from specialist retailers. RRP’s (tbc).
