Es gibt einen Nachfolger zum Peated Release 1: den Glasgow 1770 Peated Rich & Smoky aus dem PX Fass. Beim Release 1 wurde erst in first-fill ex-sherry Fässern gelagert und dann in einem virgin oak Fass nachgereift. Beim Rich & Smoky wurde hingegen erst in virgin oak Fässern und dann in Pedro Ximénez sherry Fässern nachgereift. Ich vermute deshalb, dass der Rich & Smoky nicht nur würziger, sondern auch einen süßeren Sherry-Punch durch die PX Fässer hat. Klingt spannend und ist ab heute verfügbar…
- Glasgow 1770 Peated Rich & Smoky, 46%, 0.5l, ncf, nca, RRP 49.- GBP
Offizielle Tasting Notes
- On the nose, the latest Glasgow 1770 Peated offers sweet smoke and rich toffee with notes of vibrant vanilla, dried dark fruits and cracked black peppercorn spice with subtle hints of flamed orange.
- Tobacco leaf and rich dark toffee dominate the palate with a background of sweet soft peat and gentle earthy undertones. The finish is incredibly smooth with notes of salted caramel, liquorice, and lingering spice.

Glasgow Distillery Launch New Rich & Smoky Single Malt Whisky
The Glasgow Distillery has announced the launch of a new Rich & Smoky single malt whisky, which is now available to purchase from the Glasgow Distillery website.
Glasgow 1770 Peated Rich & Smoky is crafted from the finest malted barley which has been smoked with the aromatic heather-rich peat of the Scottish Highlands; combined with the exceptionally pure water of Loch Katrine and distilled in traditional copper pot stills, resulting in a rich, deeply satisfying spirit with soft smoky notes.
Glasgow 1770 Peated Rich & Smoky succeeds the distillery’s inaugural peated single malt, Peated Release No.1, of which only a handful of bottles remain available to purchase.
Whilst the distillery’s inaugural Peated release was matured in first-fill ex-sherry casks and finished in virgin oak, the succeeding iteration has been matured in virgin oak and finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, resulting in an exciting and intriguingly different spirit.
Liam Hughes, CEO and co-founder of The Glasgow Distillery, said: “The response to our inaugural Glasgow 1770 Peated was phenomenal, with Peated Release No.1 picking up a host of prestigious awards such as Best Lowland Single Malt at the International Whisky Awards. After receiving such a fantastic response to our first smoky single malt, we have been working tirelessly to bring you something slightly different, but equally as impressive. Our new expression has been laid to rest in virgin oak casks and finished in delicious Pedro Ximénez sherry hogsheads of the finest quality, giving the spirit not just a deeply delicious taste, but also an incredibly rich colour. We would like to encourage those who have tried our inaugural release to share their thoughts on our new peated release. We’d love consumers to taste both iterations side by side and let us know what they think.”
