Back to life, back to reality. 
 
The Glenglassaugh distillery was founded by Col. James Moir in 1875, at the east end of the beautiful Sandend Bay, in the Speyside region of Scotland. In 1892 Glenglassaugh was purchased by Highland Distillers and continued production until 1986, when it was mothballed. In 2008 it was bought by the BenRiach distillery with the intention of bringing this brand back to life, and rightfully so. 

Glenglassaugh Torfa is packed with peat and sweet, red fruits with a dusting of spice. Alongside the saccharine notes of tropical pineapples and bananas there are wonderfully briny notes that capture the Highland coastal home of the dram. These flavors mix well on the palate, with the slight saltiness emphasising the tang of the peat.

Absolutely delightful flavours, yum. For a peaty whisky it's incredibly light. The citrus is unmistakable and amazing combo with peat.

Did not enjoy this at all. One of the worst dams I've had... but one mans poison is another mans nectar....
