Glenglassaugh ‘Torfa’, with its peaty, phenolic nature, is a unique expression, and is quite different to the usual style of whisky produced in the Highlands. in addition to the traditional production, Glenlassaugh also produce a very limited quantity of whisky using richly peated malted barley as the cereal varietal. The malted barley has been dried in the traditional way, over peat infused kilns, giving the whisky its unique smoky flavour.
Nose: An instant punch of peat. Citrus fruits and burnt, smoky butter.
Palate: Sweet and smoky, the zest of an orange and candied peel. A light pepper spice.
Finish: Short-medium, peat re-emerges, with a spicy kick.
