Glenglassaugh Port Wood Finish Review

16th November 2017
Review of the Glenglassaugh Port Wood Finish.

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

Matured initially in first-fill American oak casks it was then finished for up to two years in Port Wood casks selected by Glenglassaugh Whisky Maker, Rachel Barrie.

Non chill-filtered and natural colour this Port 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: Creamy vanilla toffee, a gentle touch of ripe raisins and just a little hint of gingery spice.

Taste: Deliciously fresh and juicy, a sweet raisiny fruitiness, zesty orange and some cherry brandy. A very gentle touch of vanilla and oak spice hiding in the background

Finish: The fresh fruitiness morphs to stewed plum before slowly fading into a lingering gentle dry and a little nutty oakiness.

Comment: A delicious, enjoyable, juicy port finished whisky, likely around 7ish years old.  The fruit has more to say than the oak but this works well, it is a lovely balance of grape and oak.

SMW Score 85/100
