- Glenglassaugh 40 Year Old Batch 1 Cask #6801
Glenglassaugh 40 Year Old 1973 vintage batch 1 Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. Single cask Manzanilla Sherry Puncheon #6801 bottled February 2014. 497 bottles.
Nose: Magnificent full bodied, yet elegant sherry character. Plum juice and dates carry bursts of orange sherbet and touches of gentle anise.
Palate: The freshness of candied peal balances the rich dark chocolate and sherried dark fruit character. A subtle grapefruit and warm oak spice lightens and adds a citrus twist to the finish.

However, Glenglassaugh was back in production in December 2008 and is now owned by Brown Forman of America.
