Nose: Rich sherry aromas, eucalyptus and cedar followed by a boiled fruit medley, too complex to break down. Palate: Rich dried fruit dominates but the boiled fruits appear in the mid palate with hints of vanilla, spices and salt denoting the maritime environment. Finish: A long finish follows where the dried fruits and fresh fruit complement each other.
Glenglassaugh Distillery is a Highland malt whisky distillery situated at Sandend Bay near Portsoy on the Banffshire coast with views north over the Moray Firth and the North Sea and is one of just a very few truly coastal Highland malt whisky distilleries.
