Glenglassaugh  – Rare Cask Release Batch 1- vintage 1968 & 1973

A while back I received quite a few samples of old and rare GG’s from the rare cask release batch 1.  It’s not everyday you get to taste stuff like that from the late 60s and early 70s and I suspect most of those bottles are not going to even get opened, and mainly used as a tool for  “investment”. …

Glenglassaugh Torfa

Just a few weeks ago I’ve written about this new expression from GG called the Torfa when it was released.  Young, peated GG (not that there are any old GG made by the new owners), but what’s unique is that they made peaty. Peated malts work well when young usually, that is if you’re into peat… I quite like peated …

The New Kid on the Block : Glenglassaugh Evolution

If you remember i reviewed the young GG “Revival” a few months ago.

This lovely dram was aged in Ex-Tennessee whisky barrels from George Dickel distillery …

Tasting Glenglassaugh 26 year old

A few weeks ago I reviewed the latest addition to the GG range the “Revival”, and this week it’s a much older whisky we’re trying from Glenglassaugh.
This dram is part of the old stock left to mature in the GG warehouses prior to the purchase and revival of the distillery. It was released in 2010, and has been quite successful …

Glenglassaugh ‘Revival’

I’m really happy to be reviewing my first GG malt on the blog today. I’ve heard many good things about the new distillery (which was revived after a long mothballing period), and it’s high time to get and know their malts.
Glenglassaugh was founded in 1875 by a local entrepreneur and his two nephews. In 1892 the distillery was sold to …
