product Details

Glenglassaugh 1972 Single Sherry Cask 41 Year Old #2114

Situated just north of the Speyside region border, Glenglassaugh is an interesting single malt. So interesting in fact, that it proved difficult for blenders to marry with other whiskies, and it closed down in 1986, deemed surplus to requirements in the era of oversupply in the whisky industry. With the evolution of the single malt market in the years that followed, the distillery made a surprise comeback in 2008 when it was revived by a group of private investors. It then found its feet as part of the Benriach Distillery Company, and is now part of the Brown-Forman stable. Releases from both sides of its 22 year hiatus are very well regarded.

This whisky was distilled pm 25th October 1972 and aged in single sherry butt #2114 for 41 years before being bottled in February 2014.

One of 582 bottles.
