Glenglassaugh Distillery, standing on the Moray Firth coast at the edge of Sandend Bay, is a distillery which lay silent and forgotten for over two decades till 2008.
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. Torfa referring to the old Norse word for Peat, is a brooding, edgy character, whose personality is to be found at the darker side of the spectrum.
An eloquent , sweet costal peat smoke engulfs candied peel over melon. pineapple and roasted red apples. Oat biscuits, hints of heather honey and a gentle cigar box spice all combine to give a terrific balance to the expressive smoky character.
