This very well matured Speyside single malt from Glenglassaugh aged in a rum barrel. It was bottled in 2015 at an impressive 41 years old. Speyside distillery Glenglassaugh was completely renewed and refurbished in the first decade of this century. It reopened in 2008 to great succes. Glenglassaugh first opened in 1875 and was named after their local water source: the Glenglassaugh Springs. From 1986 until 2008 it was owned by Edrington, the parent company of Macallan and Highland Park. They mainly used the distillery to make blended whisky. Owner Scaent Group took the brand to a higher level after reopening in 2008: they bottled well aged and pre-Edrington distilled whisky as single cask releases. These single malts were appreciated greatly and still are today. No wonder that BenRiach continued this strategy after they acquired Glenglassaugh in 2013.
