Glenglassaugh Torfa Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
Gleaming yellow gold in colour, the Glenglassaugh Torfa is vivid and sweet on the nose with a sooty campfire smoke and sea air infused with zest of lime, apricot jam and ripe soft fruits. All gently warmed by hints of stem ginger and cracked black pepper. The palate is eloquent with sweet coastal peat smoke engulfing candied peel over melon, pineapple and roasted red apples. Oat biscuits, hints of heather honey and a gentle cigar box spice all combine to give a terrific balance to the expressive smoky character.
The finish is heady, yet elegant, showing a harmony of distinct coastal peat and striking spiced fruit flavours.
Glenglassaugh is produced using the highest quality of Scottish barley and traditional distilling methods with their key focus being on quality. While many distilleries have become highly automated, the folk at Glenglassaugh still handcraft their spirit by a small, highly skilled team dedicated to creating the highest quality product. Only the finest casks are selected to slowly mature their precious spirit in their coastal warehouses until it is ready.
At Glenglassaugh, in addition to the traditional production, they also produce a very limited quantity of whisky using richly peated malted barley as the cereal varietal. The malted barley has been dried in the traditional way, over peat infused kilns, giving the whisky its unique smoky flavour. Glenglassaugh ‘Torfa’, with its peaty, phenolic nature, is a unique expression, and is quite different to the usual style of whisky produced in the Highlands.
