Meet Glasgow 1770 Peated Cask Strength. Our popular rich and smoky release has been double distilled with malted barley that has been peated to 50ppm with mainland peat from Aberdeenshire, before maturing in virgin American white oak and finishing in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks.
For Batch 01 we chose three hogsheads that truly demonstrate the rich and smoky character that fans expect from our peated style – these were married together and are presented at 60.8% ABV with 1000 bottles available.
Notes of rich BBQ sauce, tobacco leaf and opulent smoked Iberico ham marry with sticky poached plums, dried apricot and flamed orange zest for a truly stunning showcase of the Peated whisky we’re producing at The Glasgow Distillery.
On the nose, rich smoky BBQ sauce, tobacco leaf and opulent smoked Iberico ham, opening up to ripe juicy blackberries and sticky poached plums.
On the palate, sweet BBQ smoke with grilled pineapple and banana lead to slow roasted coffee beans, dried apricot and flamed orange zest.
The finish is long and rich with lasting notes of sweet tobacco, dark chocolate, juicy raisins and sultanas, with hints of toasted oak shavings.
