- Glenglassaugh Torfa
Glenglassaugh Torfa Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in ex-bourbon barrels this is the first peated expression to be released from Glenglassaugh.
Nose: Vivid, sweet, sooty campfire smoke and sea air infuses zest of lime, apricot jam and ripe soft fruits; all gently warmed by hints of stem ginger and cracked black pepper.
Palate: Robust, white peppery oak floods through crisp green apple and freshly cracked barley. A gentle salted caramel emerges alongside hints of ripe banana and fruit salad syrup.

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