Master Distiller, Rachel Barrie, has carefully selected a number of casks to be bottled as the Glenglassaugh Octaves
For the second Batch of Glenglassaugh Octaves Peated, the distillery has used octave casks made from resized bourbon, Port and Oloroso sherry casks. This has helped to impart a wine-like sweetness to the expression.
Nose: Oak and red grape, with a touch of chocolate. Hints of burnt wood develop in the background.
Palate: Smoke begins to come to the fore on the palate, though the sherried sweetness keeps it nicely balanced.
Finish: Red chilli, chocolate and flamed orange peel.
