Proof66 Notes

Glenglassaugh Torfa Richly Peated scotch is a heavy, smoky scotch indicated by both the term "richly peated" but also "torfa," which is Norse for "peat." The distillery uses "peat-infused" kilns, which doesn't sound quite the same as "peat burning" kilns (which would be ultra-traditional) but still a very traditional and time-honored method of drying malted barley. They do not mention an age statement. it is bottled at a significant 100 proof (compare with most single malts at 86).

Glenglessaugh was founded in 1875 by James Moir and later sold off in 1892 by his surviving nephews. It continued operating until 1907. It was briefly revived in 1959 until closing again in 1986. Glenglessaugh was re-purchased by investors who formed the Glenglassaugh Distillery Company in 2008 and began releasing new stocks of spirits. They offer a line of whiskies stored from previous stocks and a new line of spirit drinks. The brand was subsequently sold to the BenRiach Distilling Company in 2013.
