Glenglassaugh number 2, Peated. Can you guess what the next article will be?
Not a lot to say this time out that we didn’t say in the last piece, so this will be short. This is another distilling/retail experiment by Glenglassaugh, this one using peat smoked malted barley, I assume. I can’t really tell you too much more because it looks like these were limited runs and their marketing material has already been pulled.
