The Master Distiller has selected a limited number of Virgin Oak casks to finish maturing the peated Glenglassaugh single malt. During the second period of maturation he says 'the whisky interacts with the wood, adding an intriguing range of flavours and aromas specific to the Virgin Oak cask.'
|Distillery: Creamy vanilla with toasted oak spice flows over candy store confectionery and crisp freshly peated barley.
The WSD: Peppered strawberries and then scented hand soap. A touch carbolic. (M)
|Distillery: Crisp oak and hints of candied ginger, boiled sweets and brittle toffee.
The WSD: Sweet and slightly smoky. Almost menthol - a definite cough sweet influence (M)
|Distillery: Delicious, sweet peat smoke|
