Review of the unpeated Glenglassaugh Rare Cask Release 2009 Cask No 1346.

Glenglassaugh Rare Cask Release 2009 Cask No 1346Glenglassaugh Rare Cask Release 2009 Cask No 1346 is one of two UK exclusive releases in the Glenglassaugh Coastal Casks Collection.

Distilled on the 22nd December 2009, this unpeated spirit was matured for 10 years in a Bourbon Cask No. 1346 which produced just 250 bottles. Bottled in 2020 at 54.7% ABV.

The Glenglassaugh Cask No 1346 has a RRP of 89 and will be available exclusively from the Glenglassaugh Distillery but if you wont be passing the distillery anytime soon the other UK exclusive release in this collection will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Creamy vanilla, fresh pear and a touch orange, lemon and pineapple with a mildly candied edge, a little sweet coconut lurking in the background.

Taste: Pineapple leads with some delicious Demerara sugars, a fleeting appearance from the coconut on the nose, vanilla, zesty orange, a little lemon & lime pushes back the sugars. A touch of ginger and cinnamon spice things up a little.

Finish: Long. the vanilla bows out quickly followed by the fruit to leave some lovely oak spices clinging to the palate with a salted milk chocolate edge.

Comment: A quality young bourbon cask matured dram the quality of which is no doubt boosted by the bottling strength, a great example unadulterated by any wine casks of what they produce now at Glenglassaugh and a indication of good things to come as their maturing stock laid down since the distillery started producing again back in 2008 comes of age.

SMW Whisky Score 88/100
