Succeeding the distillery’s inaugural peated single malt release, the aptly named Peated Release No.1, the new expression offers sweet smoke, rich toffee, dark fruits and spice. The Rich & Smoky was matured in virgin oak and finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks; the result has created an intriguingly different dram.
Liam Hughes, CEO and co-founder of The Glasgow Distillery, says: “The response to our inaugural Glasgow 1770 Peated was phenomenal, with Peated Release No.1 picking up a host of prestigious awards such as Best Lowland Single Malt at the International Whisky Awards. After receiving such a fantastic response to our first smoky single malt, we have been working tirelessly to bring you something slightly different, but equally as impressive.
“Our new expression has been laid to rest in virgin oak casks and finished in delicious Pedro Ximénez sherry hogsheads of the finest quality, giving the spirit not just a deeply delicious taste, but also an incredibly rich colour.
“We would like to encourage those who have tried our inaugural release to share their thoughts on our new peated release. We’d love consumers to taste both iterations side by side and let us know what they think.”
Glasgow 1770 Peated Rich & Smoky is bottled at 46% ABV and is now available to purchase for £49 at www.glasgowdistillery.com.
