Glenglassaugh Torfa

Glenglassaugh Torfa

On the crescent beach of Sandend Bay stands a reawakened distillery, producing a luscious coastal malt, shaped by the rich abundance of land and sea, giving rolling waves of flavour.
A complete distillation of its natural surroundings. A whisky whose essence is distilled from the visible and invisible influences of land, sea, air and spring water.
Glenglassaugh Distillery, standing on the Moray Firth coast at the edge of the beautiful Sandend Bay, lay silent and forgotten for over two decades. Its heritage stretches back to 1875 when the distillery was founded by Colonel James Moir.
It was on the banks of Glassaugh burn that the distillery was built, and its name ‘Glenglassaugh’ – meaning ‘valley of the grey-green place’ – has been taken from its beautiful surroundings.
Despite being mothballed for over twenty years, the distillery has a history of proven maturation, with award-winning old vintages dating back to the 1960s, and an award-winning range of boutique younger whiskies, released in the years following the distillery’s reopening in 2008.

Glenglassaugh Torfa with its peaty, phenolic nature, is a unique expression, and is quite different to the usual style of whisky produced in the Highlands. ‘Torfa’, referring to the Old Norse word for peat, is produced using richly peated malted barley as the cereal varietal and has been matured in bourbon casks. Bottled at 50% ABV, non-chill filtered and of natural colour.

COLOUR: Gleaming yellow gold.
NOSE: Vivid, sweet, sooty campfire smoke and sea-air infuses zest of lime, apricot jam and ripe soft fruits; all gently warmed by hints of stem ginger and cracked black pepper.
PALATE: An eloquent, sweet coastal peat smoke engulfs candied peel over melon, pineapple and roasted red apples. Oat biscuits, hints of heather honey and a gentle cigar box spice all combine to give a terrific balance to the expressive smoky character.
FINISH: A heady, yet elegant, harmony of distinct coastal peat and striking spiced fruit flavours.
