Review of the peated Glenglassaugh Rare Cask Release 2009 Cask No 559.

Glenglassaugh Rare Cask Release 2009 Cask No 559Glenglassaugh Rare Cask Release 2009 Cask No 559 is one of two UK exclusive releases in the Glenglassaugh Coastal Casks Collection.

Distilled on the 11th December 2009, this peated spirit was matured for 10 years in a Bourbon Cask No. 559 which produced just 191 bottles. Bottled in 2020 at 55.9% ABV.

The Glenglassaugh Cask No 559 has a RRP of 89 and 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: Vanilla infused with a lovely gentle sweet peat smoke, a touch of pineapple and some distant cinnamon.

Taste: Some lovely light Demerara sugars lead with light but mouth filling vanilla all infused with a some delicious light peat smoke. Some pineapple, lemon, a little toffee and a touch of honey, some late coconut.

Finish: Long the vanilla, sugars and pineapple bow out quickly to leave some lingering, light but lucious peat smoke and gentle spices.

Comment: Loved it, a cracking young, wee peaty Glenglassaugh, I would recommend grabbing a bottle, a well made quality lightly peated bourbon cask matured whisky which is packed full of pleasure due to its bottling strength of 55.9% ABV.

SMW Whisky Score 91/100
