Currently under the control of the BenRiach group, it's an incredibly exciting time for Glenglassaugh at the moment - particualrly given that is was mothballed from 1986-2008 (BenRiach bought it in 2013).
Part of the 'new world' of Glenglassaugh releases is the Torfa which, unusually for the distillery, is peated.
From the distillery:
Nose: Vivid, sweet, sooty campfire smoke and sea air infuses zest of lime, apricot jam and ripe soft fruits; all gently warmed by hints of stem ginger and cracked black pepper.
Palate: An eloquent, sweet coastal peat smoke engulfs 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.
Finish: A heady, yet elegant, harmony of distinct coastal peat and striking spiced fruit flavours.
