Glenglassaugh Octaves Peated
Created using richly peated barely and fully matured in an Octave cask which is approximately 1/8th the size of a butt. Maturing whisky in a smaller cask allows more contact with the wood which delveops and ages the whisky a lot quicker.
Bottled at 44% and one off two special Octave bottlings released by Glenglassaugh distillery in the Summer of 2016.

Glenglassaugh Octaves Peated Official Tasting Notes
Colour: Bright autumn gold.
Nose: A dollop of rich clotted cream spread over apple crumble, infused with delicious, sweet waves of heather burning on the hillside.
Palate: Apricot jam and greengage plums with a contrasting warmth of freshly cracked black pepper. A subtle and delicate smouldering peat ember smokiness flows through the palate.
Finish: The delicate, sweet nature of Highland peat marries harmoniously with the distinctive spirit and cask interaction found in octave maturation.
