GLENGLASSAUGH TORFA HEAVILY PEATED 50% 700ML
Glenglassaugh Torfa with its peaty, phenolic nature, is a unique expression, and it is quite different to the usual style of whisky produced in the Highlands. Torfa, referring to the Old Norse word for peat, is a brooding, edgy character, whose personality is to be found at the darker end of the spectrum. Bottled at 50%, non chill filtered and natural colour. Looks Gleaming yellow gold. Smells: 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. Tastes: 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. Finishes: A heady, yet elegant harmony of distinct coastal peat and striking spiced fruit flavours.
