The Glenglassaugh Distillery has released two expressions of the Glenglassaugh Octaves, Classic and Peated, both of which are composed of octaves made to size from a range of Bourbon, Pedro Ximénez, Oloroso and Amontillado Sherry and Port casks.

The small octave cask is around 65 litres and allows for greater interaction between the oak wood and spirit.

Glenglassaugh Octaves Classic Batch 2 has been chosen by master blender, Rachel Barrie, combining Bourbon, Pedro Ximénez and Amontillado Sherry cask octaves, bottled at 44% ABV and non-chill filtered.

Glenglassaugh Octaves Peated Batch 2, is composed of Glenglassaugh peated malt matured in Bourbon, Port and Oloroso Sherry cask octaves, also bottled at 44% ABV, of natural cask colour and non-chill filtered.

Barrie said: “As the surf rolls in on Sandend Bay and invigorating North Sea air passes through our coastal warehouses, these two luscious malts are truly a distillation of nature’s elements. Shaped by the rich abundance of land and sea, this fresh duo of Glenglassaugh Octaves encapsulates rolling waves of flavour that intensify and evolve with each and every sip.

Glenglassaugh Octaves Classic and Peated Batch 2 are jewels in this elemental distillery’s journey, which I hope you will savour to the full.”
