Glenglassaugh Octaves Classic

The whisky has been matured in octave casks, made from staves of a used cask, that are approximately 1/8th the size of a butt. A smaller casks allows for more interaction between the wood and the spirit, giving the whisky a great depth of flavour in a short period of time.

Aromas (without water) An abundance of sweet shop characteristics. Sherbet and candy apples with a gentle warmth of white pepper and cinnamon.
Flavour A vibrant green apple skin note balances with stewed yellow plums and hints of black vanilla pod. Clean, freshly sawn oak softens to crisp, sweet barley in the long finish. Finish: A delicious combination of citrus and sweet notes complement the unique oak characteristics from the octave cask maturation.
