Distillery proud of the Glenglassaugh 51yo
"We were very excited when we, after the purchase last year (2013) of the Glenglassaugh distillery, some very old vintage 1963 barrels found in old warehouses," said Donald Maclellan of BenRiach Distillery.
But more importantly, we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful balance and finesse of this whiskey, as a silent witness was present at the various closures and reopenings of the distillery under different owners over the last five decades. Now the Glenglassaugh distillery in trusted, reliable and forever independently owned, this whiskey has reached its peak and is ready to excel.
We already know that those who are fortunate will have to taste this delicious whiskey will be grateful for the undisturbed tranquility where these vessels have been waiting until we came to show the world this whiskey tasting .....
Each wooden box in which the whiskey is supplied handmade by an artisan carpenter from Glasgow. Each box has spent this carpenter 4 hours, so you can be confident that the quality of each box corresponds to the superior quality of the whiskey in the kist.En last, why 51 years and not 50 years, which is more standard is? Because Glenglassaugh a unique independent distillery that breaks the existing rules. Glenglassaugh is wonderfully eccentric and has a unique character, and we want to show.
Full of mahogany with a full crimson red border.
Fascinating depths and layers that develop from fig and plum syrup to delicate apricot and hints of blackberries. All this with inviting soft subtle Belgian chocolate and intriguing hints of roasted coffee.
The exclusive soft but full-bodied character gives a rich, complex symphony of red fruit, hints of syrup, light taste of alpine herbs and a little clove. In the distance sour cherries and soft peppery oak add a memorable sophistication to this rare vintage.
The rarity of this vintage reflects the unique characteristics of the whiskey. The combination of the multi-faceted and ever-changing tastes that open into the mouth, the style and elegance of this rare whiskey to enjoy intensely.
