Glenglassaugh Massandra Collection

Glenglassaugh Massandra Connection
This limited edition selection of five whiskies is the fruit of Glenglassaugh’s partnership with the Crimean winery, Massandra.

There are only 1349 bottles produced from the five casks used to create the selection. They are Aleatico Finish, Sherry Style Finish, Muscat Finish, Red Port Style Finish and Madeira Style Finish, have their own characteristics in flavour and palate, and are of various ages.

Prices range from £350 to £690 for the 45 year old Red Port Style whisky.

“While using ex-wine or sherry casks to finish whisky is nothing new, we believe that this is the first time that a distillery has been able to use Crimean wine casks in this process,” said Stuart Nickerson, managing director of Glenglassaugh distillery. “Previously, the Massandra Winery would use their casks until physical exhaustion and this is the first time that they have allowed the casks to be used outside of the winery.”

The range is available in selected markets around the world.
