Glenglassaugh 1972 44YO Rare Cask Release Batch 3 700ml
Thanks to years of closure over the past century, Glenglassaugh is a distillery with two types of whisky: very young or very old. This is one of the latter drams, bottled as part of the third batch of single casks released by the distillery. Matured in a cask that previously contained Massandra – a Crimean fortified wine, similar to sherry – and bottled in November 2016, it's a rich and dark dram, packed with dried fruit notes.
Rich prunes and ripe figs, brittle toffee, white pepper and mixed peel.
Dark Mediterranean fruits, gentle vanilla pod, a dusting of nutmeg, dark chocolate and caramelised orange.
