Glenglassaugh 50 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Glenglassaugh have been releasing some serious age statements since the turn of the millenium. This one tops the lot. Bottled from a single Spanish Pedro Ximénez sherry cask after maturing in the distillery’s coastal warehouses for over half a century, just 264 bottles are available globally.
Master blender, Rachel Barrie reflects, “A lot can happen in fifty years. From the distillery being lost, then revived 13 years ago, to the release of its first core range celebrating its youthful spirit.” Of the new 50 year old, she adds, "...the flavour profile ranges from caramelised pear to soft exotic cherries; almond and refined oak beautifully intertwine to present a symphony of tropical notes on a gentle ocean breeze with rolling waves of flavour, which intensify and evolve with each sip."
Bottled at 40.1% ABV and housed in a bespoke presentation box designed to display the bottle and the spirit’s natural cask derived colour, we have one only available.
