Glenglassaugh 40 Year Old

Glenglassaugh 40 Bottling Note

An extremely rare, limited edition 40 year old whisky from Glenglassaugh. This is truly a stunning single malt, bottled in February 2009 at cask strength, with a limited outturn of just 225 bottles, matured in a hogshead. Packaged in a beautiful decanter bottle, with an incredible wooden presentation case and two crystal tumblers. This was awarded 96 points by Jim Murray in his 2010 Whisky Bible, where it was also heralded as the Single Malt of the Year in the 35 to 40 year old category!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: An incredibly aromatic nose, with both age and pedigree in prominent position. The dried fruits, particularly raisin and date, then dried mango and banana. Herbal too, and very floral. There is a wonderful earthiness, and soft oak, saddle leather and cedar. An almost umami-like richness develops in the glass, with a smoked meat quality, with that earthiness, and wood oils. Just outstanding.

Palate: Rich and syrupy. So much wood integration as notes of dried berries, creamy spices, cocoa, coffee. Floral too, with a tingle of cinnamon.

Finish: Medium length and gentle, with good oak hanging on with dried fruits and feinty notes.

Overall: One of the best super aged malts we've come across, truly an exceptional dram.
