About the Producer:
Glenglassaugh Distillery is situated on the north coast of Scotland, perched upon high ground overlooking the North Sea. 

Founded in 1875, it was shuttered in 1907 for 53 years. It then reopened only for brief periods before closing in 1986, this time seemingly for good. But in 2008 Glenglassaugh was purchased by an investor group that restarted production, and it subsequently was acquired by Jack Daniel’s owner Brown-Forman in 2016.

About the whisky:

Glenglassaugh Sandend is inspired by the crescent beach of Sandend Bay where the distillery resides. Enriched in bourbon, sherry and manzanilla casks, over time the lush flavour of Glenglassaugh Sandend brightens into waves of tropical sweetness, infused with a crack of sea salt.

Tasting Notes:

COLOUR: Summer Gold

NOSE: Soft buttery vanilla ice-cream drenched in tropical fruit, with chocolate and a touch of sea salt.

TASTE: Waves of salted-caramel with an effervescent burst of pineapple, cherry and grapefruit, enlivened by the ocean shore.

ABV: 50.5%

Awards/Reviews:

95 Points, #1 Top 100 Of 2023 - Whisky Advocate

"This non-age statement expression, named for the bay offshore, is bright and delicate, with aromas of citrus and minerality leading to a luscious palate filled with layers of flavor revealing peach, apricot, honey, pound cake, and vanilla, all accented with a touch of sea salt. Rolling spices help create an explosive, long-lasting finish. It’s gentle yet complex, but above all it’s an easy sipper you can just sit back and enjoy. Glenglassaugh is ready to roll, and judging by this stellar release, patience is being rewarded in spades."
