Glenglassaugh Torfa, 50%
Price: $55 ● Issue: Summer 2020 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
The first peated expression from Glnglassaugh after reopening in 2008, Torfa is made from barley malted to 20 ppm and matured in bourbon barrels. Bonfire smoke, ozone, orchard fruits, malt, and black pepper are present on the nose. Slightly savory on the smooth palate, with sweet peat smoke, honey, dark chocolate, and a very mild maritime note. Ginger, apricot, and more sweet peat in the finish.
