Master Distiller, Rachel Barrie, has carefully selected a number of casks to be bottled as the Glenglassaugh Octaves Classic
The second batch of Glenglassaugh Octaves Classic features a more sherried profile than the first batch. Matured in octave casks made with wood from bourbon, Pedro Ximénez and Amontillado casks, imparting huge helpings of dried fruit and vanilla notes to the single malt.
Nose: Earthy vanilla arrives first, but soon enough you'll find notes of dried cranberries and thick treacle.
Palate: Chocolate, caramel and hints of red chilli.
