Scotch and Sweets – Glenglassaugh
October 14, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
YOU ARE INVITED to join for a Glenglassaugh virtual tasting featuring 3 top-shelf single malts with Scottish Confection pairings. This MASC event will be led by Amber Aristy,
Brown-Forman/Atlanta. Please purchase your tickets ASAP as we only have room for 23 participants. No worries; there will be BenRiach and GlenDronach events in November and December 2020. Our September tasting was great fun! We hope to see you on Zoom!
Glenglassaugh Evolution – paired with Scottish Tablet
The abundant sweetness and creamy mouthfeel of the tablet offsets the sweetness of the Evolution and produces fresh notes of sea breeze and tropical fruits. This is due to the unusually fruity nature of the spirit and the use of fresh Tennessee whiskey casks that impart notes of ripe banana.
Glenglassaugh Revival – paired with Salted Caramel
Creating a silky texture on the palate, this pairing rounds out the edges of the whisky while producing a wave of creamy caramel and toffee brittle notes that give way to espresso coffee and warming vanilla bean, with subtle hints of sea air on the finish.
Glenglassaugh Torfa – paired with Peppermint Chocolate Shortbread
The buttery notes of shortbread and subtle mint crunch provide a profound effect when paired with our Torfa. The mint leaf is released in a cooling burst as it highlights the blasts of fresh peat, supplying strong notes of bonfire smoke and fresh sea air that lead to a soft finish of warming vanilla spice.
*$10.00 surcharge for USPS shipping to out-of-area purchasers. There were only 2 such instances for September 2020 tasting.
