Whisky Focus - New Glenglassaugh 30 Year Old 2013

Glenglassaugh 30 Year Old

29th August 2013
BenRiach release its first Glenglassaugh bottling.

The BenRiach Distillery Company, which bought the Portsoy-based Glenglassaugh distillery back in March this year has announced the release of its first Glenglassaugh expression since taking over ownership of the distillery – a Glenglassaugh 30 year old single malt.

Back in March, BenRiach’s MD and Master Blender Billy Walker said: "It’s our intention to bring this iconic distillery fully back to life by giving it the investment, commitment and care it deserves. I believe our whisky expertise, proven brand-building ability and strong routes to market will help take Glenglassaugh to the next level."

The next level starts with this 30 year old and Mr Walker’s tasting notes below show how appropriate it is that this very special Highland single malt which was bottled at 44.8% ABV, should be the very first Glenglassaugh to be released by BenRiach.

Sales Director Alistair Walker said: "We’re delighted to release our first Glenglassaugh expression five months after taking over the distillery. The 30 year old is a great example of the unique Glenglassaugh character - complex fruit flavours, sherry overtones, spices and a lasting finish. It’s the first of a number of planned developments we have for our new brand which is in response to strong demand for Glenglassaugh in global markets."
