The Malt Whisky Co. Glenglassaugh 40 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky
For over a hundred years, the Glenglassaugh Distillery operated at its original site, producing single malt whiskies that were best known for their starring roles in renowned blended Scotch whiskies, including Cutty Sark and the Famous Grouse. In 1986, however, production at the distillery ceased, and would not be restarted until 2008, when new owners took over Glenglassaugh. While the distillery is again producing new whisky, the new owners discovered they had purchased quite a bit more than the famous distillery itself: the purchase also included a cache of some 400 casks of aging Glenglassaugh Single Malt whisky, each more than twenty years old.
Upon this realization, Glenglassaugh’s former master distiller hand-selected his favorite cask from the remaining cache. The whisky resting in the cask was distilled in 1973, and had matured for over forty years in a refill sherry hogshead barrel. After he purchased the cask, the whisky inside was bottled at cask strength.
The Malt Whisky Co. Glenglassaugh 40 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky has a rich aroma of berries, brown sugar, apples and pears. Notes of apricots, raspberries, oak, vanilla and toffee dominate the palate, and lead to a smooth, fruity finish.
Only 254 bottles of this whisky were ever made, and only eleven remain that we’re aware of. Pick one up today!
