Glasgow Distillery launches new Triple DistilledBy Alice Brooker
The Glasgow Distillery Company has unveiled a new iteration of its 1770 Single Malt Triple Distilled whisky, following the ‘sell-out success’ of the original bottling.
The new edition of the Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Triple Distilled is slightly tweaked from the previous release, which was unveiled in May 2020. The latest launch 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.
The new expression is made using water from Loch Katrine, 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$67.78) from glasgowdistillery.com.
