Glenglassaugh distillery has introduced four cask-finished whiskies in a first for the Highland single malt.
The Glenglassaugh Wood Finish range is said to ‘mark a new chapter’ for the distillery, which reopened in 2008 after spending 22 years in silence.
The range includes Port Wood finish, Peated Port Wood finish, Pedro Ximénez finish and Peated Virgin Oak Wood finish, all of which are bottled at 46% abv without an age statement.
Each expression has spent its life in first-fill American oak casks, and finished for up to two years in its respective cask.
The Port Wood finish is said to have notes of grapefruit, blood orange and herbal oak, while the Peated Port Wood finish has notes of wild red berry and black pepper with a sweet campfire peatiness.
The Peated Virgin Oak finish is described as tasting of candied ginger, boiled sweets and brittle toffee, while the Pedro Ximénez finish has notes of pear Tarte Tatin and cedar wood spice.
The limited edition range will be available in global markets for around £60 for the Port and Pedro Ximénez finishes, and £70 for the Virgin Oak finish.
