Glenglassaugh Peated Virgin Oak Wood Finish Review


16th November 2017
Review of the Glenglassaugh Peated Virgin Oak Wood Finish.

Glenglassaugh Peated Virgin Oak Wood FinishThe Glenglassaugh Peated Virgin Oak Wood Finish is one of four new wood finish whiskies recently released by the highland distillery.

Matured initially in first-fill American oak casks this peated whisky was then finished for up to two years in Virgin Oak casks selected by Glenglassaugh Whisky Maker, Rachel Barrie.

Non chill-filtered and natural colour this Peated Virgin Oak Wood Finish was bottled at 46% ABV and is currently available from specialist whisky shops such as Master of Malt

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Light caramelised sugar, toasted barley and a lovely light peat smoke.

Taste: Delicious Demerara sugars infused with a lovely light peat smoke, vanilla toffee, a gentle candied fruitiness and a lovely light touch of vibrant oak spice always in the background.

Finish: Medium to long, a candied sweetness which fades leaving some lovely oak spice and the light peat smoke clinging to the palate.

Comment: An outstanding new addition to the Glenglassaugh range, a very enjoyable well balanced wood finish from Glenglassaugh. The light peat smoke and delicious sugars entertain from nose to finish with the virgin oak adding its touch to the pleasure. It is gentle but certainly not docile, a delightful whisky.

SMW Score 90/100

You can find the full current Glenglassaugh whisky range available from specialist Whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
