Following the incredible success of the original bottling, the Glasgow Distillery Company has shared a new iteration of its 1770 Single Malt Triple Distilled whisky.
Slightly altered from the previous release, which was unveiled in 2020, the new edition of the Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Triple Distilled, the latest drink is matured in both ex-Bourbon and virgin oak casks, as opposed to the previous iteration which was matured exclusively in virgin oak casks.
The new edition is the third and final release in the distillery’s core range, which includes the 1770 Peated expression launched in 2019, and Glasgow 1770 Original, which debuted in 2018. The producer also unveiled a new edition of its peated bottling in October 2020.
Made with water from Loch Katrine, the new expression is similar to Triple Distilled Release No. 1.
After maturation, it is married and bottled to produce a ‘smooth’ and ‘vibrant’ whisky.
On the nose, the whisky offers notes of sweet vanilla and chocolate, combined with pears and peaches.
The palate includes flavours of soft caramel and cream, followed by ‘delicate’ floral notes.
With a long, spiced finish, the 46% ABV expression is non-chill-filtered, and available to purchase for RRP £49 (US$68) from the Glasgow Distillery Website.
In April, The Glasgow Distillery Company, in partnership with Kelvin Cooperage, created its first distillery-exclusive single malt whisky. Glasgow Distillery’s Coopers’ Cask Release is available exclusively from the Scottish distillery, aiming to celebrate the art of creating whisky casks. The new whisky was developed by Hugh McMurray, cooper at The Glasgow Distillery, and Kevin McLaughlin from US-based Kelvin Cooperage.
As mentioned above, in October, The Glasgow Distillery Company released its second peated single malt, the 1770 Peated Rich & Smoky Whisky. The offering has been finished in Pedro Ximénez casks. Made from malted barley that has been smoked with “aromatic heather-rich” peat from the Scottish Highlands, and water from Loch Katrine, the Glasgow 1770 Peated Rich & Smoky Whisky began life maturing in virgin oak, before being finished in the aforementioned Sherry casks.
