Glenglassaugh Octaves Classic Single Malt

Description

A limited release from the resurgent highland distillery Glenglassaugh.

Now a museum release, this has used octave-sized casks (about one-eighth the size of a 500 litre butt) for maturation giving a higher surface-to-spirit ratio. Vibrant with a defined oak sweetness, this has been bottled at 44%, un-chill filtered and with natural colour.

Built in 1875, the distillery has had an on-off existence as a workhorse distilling whisky to bulk out blends. Most recently Glenglassaugh was a victim of the 1980s downturn and was inactive for over two decades between 1986 to 2008. Bought by BenRiach in 2013, there have been releases of the pre-closure stock and expressions from whisky distilled post-2008, which are usually more experimental.

Official tasting notes:

Nose: An abundance of sweet shop characteristics. Sherbet and candy apples with a gentle warmth of white pepper and cinnamon.

Palate: A vibrant green apple skin note balances with stewed yellow plums and hints of black vanilla pod. Clean, freshly sawn oak softens to crisp, sweet barley in the long finish.

Finish: A delicious combination of citrus and sweet notes complement the unique oak characteristics from the octave cask maturation.
