Wood Finish range revealed by Glenglassaugh

Brown-Forman has announced that its Glenglassaugh Distillery will release a range of limited releases.

The latest additions to the series represent a new chapter for Glenglassaugh and include the distillery’s first ever wood finish expressions. The wood finishes series features a Port Wood finish, a Peated Port Wood Finish, a Pedro Ximinez Sherry Wood Finish and a Peated Virgin Oak Wood Finish.

Glenglassaugh whisky maker Rachel Barrie says: “The release of Glenglassaugh’s first ever Wood Finish range marks a new chapter for this elemental distillery. As surf crashes on Sandend Bay and invigorating North Sea air passes through our warehouses, Glenglassaugh matures first in American ex-Bourbon casks, before changing course in either Virgin Oak, Pedro Ximenez or Port wood, on a voyage shaped by the sea.”

“From the sweet earthiness of our peated spirit enlivened by American Virgin Oak, to luscious full-bodied sweetness intensified in casks of Pedro Ximenez; from the tempestuous waves of fruit and smoke bottled as Peated Port Wood, to the sublime elemental fruit and freshness of Glenglassaugh Port Wood. I look forward to sharing this multi-dimensional voyage along our elemental coast.”

The four releases include:

Peated Virgin Oak Wood Finish

Pedro Ximenez Sherry Wood Finish

Peated Port Wood Finish

Port Wood Finish
