Glenglassaugh 51Years Old 70cl 41.7°
Exclusivity - Unique bottle in France.
Specially selected by Master Distiller Billy Walker, the rich and flavoursome whisky is from 1963 cask and has been maturing in our coastal warehouses at Portsoy for over 51 years. Distilled and filled to cask on 15th February 1963, it is one of the oldest casks in the distillery's inventory and brilliantly captures Glenglassaugh’s unique Highland coastal character.
This exceptional raw cask whisky is un-chillfiltered, of natural colour and alcohol level is 41.7°.
This rare vintage has aromas that develop in successive waves from figs and prune syrup, delicate apricot and blackberry. Subtle notes of Belgian chocolate and roasted coffee harmonise the whole.
Rich and complex symphony of red fruit jam, molasses and to a lesser extent, mountain herbs. Sweet clove oil, sour cherries and sweet pepper oak add memorable sophistication.

The Glenglassaugh Distillery, located at the edge of beautiful Sandend Bay in the Scottish Highlands, has remained silent and forgotten for more than two decades. Its legacy dates back to 1875 when the distillery was founded by Colonel James Moir.
Glenglassaugh is pronounced "Glenglassa" means "valley of the gray-green place" and it comes from this beautiful environment in the Scottish Highlands.
The Glenglassaugh coat of arms is decorated with gannets, stills and barley. The Latin phrase "Per Mare, Per Terras" means "by land, by sea" is also included.
This blazon represents the important link between the distillery, the sea and reflects the coastal environment. It also tells how whisky has always been on the market long before the construction of the distillery. Originally the distillery was the site of a trafficker where unlawful distillation took place.
Glenglassaugh is the only distillery to enjoy in a unique location on the border of Speyside and the Highlands and by the sea, this Scottish distillery reveals three distinctive characteristics in its whiskies: the Speyside bringing a tropical sweetness, the Highlands adding depth and richness and the sea giving the whisky a marine character.
Closed in 1986, it is relaunched in 2008. The distillery is a true renaissance, celebrated by the launch of Glenglassaugh Revival, a beautiful Single Malt having enjoyed a barrel finish of Oloroso sherry and many other whiskies ...
