- Glenglassaugh 45 Year Old Batch 1 Cask #1601
Glenglassaugh 45 Year Old 1968 vintage batch 1 Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. Single cask Sherry Hogshead #1601 bottled February 2014. 349 bottles.
Nose: Long and luxurious. Heady red candy apples balance with a delicate spiced orange; all softening to a distant pineapple juice.
Palate: Crisp oak spices soften to reveal elegant waves of fresh green apple and wisps of ripe banana. Delicate of hints of passion fruit, cedar wood and lime zest bring a fantastic depth to the long finish.

Glenglassaugh Distillery is a Highland malt whiskey 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 whiskey distilleries. Glenglassaugh Distillery was established by James Moir and opened in 1875. This distillery was substantially re-built in 1959 and re-opened in 1960 only to close in 1986. However, Glenglassaugh was back in production in December 2008 and is now owned by Brown Forman of America.
