GLENGLASSAUGH OCTAVES PEATED 70 Cl
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, which is quite a bit different to the more bourbon-cask-matured style of the initial release.
|Nose||Fizzy 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 in from becoming outrageous.|
|Finish||Red chilli chocolate and flamed orange peel.|
