Glenglassaugh Torfa Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    Appearance: Gleaming yellow gold.

    Nose: Vivid, sweet, sooty campfire smoke and sea air infuses zest of lime, apricot jam and ripe soft fruits; all gently warmed by hints of stem ginger and cracked black pepper.

    Palate: An eloquent, sweet coastal peat smoke engulfs candied peel over melon, pineapple and roasted red apples. Oat biscuits, hints of heather honey and a gentle cigar box spice all combine to give a terrific balance to the expressive smoky character.

    Finish: A heady, yet elegant harmony of distinct coastal peat and striking spiced fruit flavours.

    What a good Dram. It may be young, but still, very fruity, nicely peated, unchillyfiltered, uncolored and at 50% abv. Very very good dram. I higly recommend this. Get it while there is still left !

    I first tried the Torfa in a nice little whisky shop in Bakewell, Peak District whilst on a camping weekend. Finally managed to get around to purchasing a bottle and I am really enjoying it. It's not to heavily peated and reminds me a little of Kilchoman Machir Bay. It's smooth and the peat doesn't take over but compliments the nice fresh citrus taste and the finish leaves a pleasant peppery tang on your tongue. This is a good one to try for a first peated whisky.
