GLENGLASSAUGH has launched a new richly peated Highland single malt that will now be part of its core range along with Revival and Evolution. Glenglassaugh Torfa, with its smoky, peaty, phenolic nature, is a unique expression and quite different from the usual type of whisky produced in the Highlands. “At Glenglassaugh, in addition to the traditional production, we 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,” says Sales Director Alistair Walker. Torfa has a brooding, edgy character whose personality is to be found at the darker end of the spectrum
COLOUR: Gleaming yellow gold.
NOSE: Vivid, sweet, sooty campfire smoke and sea air infuse zest of lime, apricot jam and ripe soft fruits, all gently warmed by hints of stem ginger and cracked black pepper.
PALATE: An eloquent, sweet coastal 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.
FINISH: A heady, yet elegant harmony of distinct coastal peat and striking spiced fruit flavours. Torfa is a new single malt from Glenglassaugh to be treasured and savoured in quiet moments.
