    Torfa is apparently the Old Norse for turf. Bit of hard work there for the etymologists. This is Glenglassaugh's first foray (since its reopening I guess) into a peated malt and at 20ppm it is on the lighter end of the bog band. That might give the impression that it is a little restrained or muted. Not so. It is a sprightly young NAS, matured solely in ex-bourbon barrels and, with 50% abv, it delivers a nice kick. The nose is of light, sweet peat smoke mingled with citrus; a youngish waft but not an off-putting ethanol or acetone smell. Just an airy manner of freshness and youth. The taste delivers a pepper smack and a playful alcohol jab initially. Enough to widen the eyes and waken the senses. A sweet orange develops with supporting salty, oaky notes. The peat smoke is most prominent at the finish and it is fairly strong - probably another indicator of its youth. The lingering finish is a salty, sweet peat that is mmm-mm-mmm. That's the way to do it. In your face Ledaig 10!

    Light on the nose. Sweet and fruity. Peat is present on the back ground. When you take a sip you can feel a little sparkligness, more sweetness and just a dab of oak. Finish is medium. Worth trying and buying.

    Not my favorite on their range. It is pleasant probably but it’s not as elegant as others. Peaty notes are too evident for my palate

    Glenglassaugh tasting evening, Sydney, Feb 19th. Whisky #7 Nose: Fragrant sweet smoke balanced by citrus fruitiness and floral hints, but the nose is solidly founded on the crisp, clean smoke. Over time beeswax, lemon, dried fruit, coconut, crème brûlée, pineapple and a delicate cinnamon spice all emerge. [The dry-glass aroma is honeyed smoke]. Palate: Sweet, buttery, lightly briny and smoky arrival - like kippers cured in brown sugar. A resinous note from the cask and a little raisin sweetness come out in the development, together with mild ginger spice, but hot on their heels is whole a bushel of fresh tropical and stone fruit. The texture is creamy and satisfying. Finish: Medium/long. Faintly salty smoke. This was the 7th offering on the tasting night and although the 42 year old expression before it was an impossible act to follow the peated whisky had to be the last performance of the show. It's a very approachable, sweet, floral, peaty dram. Somewhat reminiscent of Connemara Turf Mór but with greater body and complexity. The pervasive smoke that propels this is not a west coast medicinal sort of smoke - it's much softer and woodier and more like Benromach smoke. The nose is complex but restrained and takes a while to develop, but the real heart of this whisky, and what makes it work so well, is the oily and dulcet character of the nose and palate. This gives the spirit a creamy weight to offset the relatively high abv and allows the aromas and flavours to shine out. Recommended. "Very Good" : 4 stars.
