Distilled at the Glasgow Distillery Co., 1770 Peated Release No.1 is both the first peated addition to the company's range, and the first peated single malt to be produced in Glasgow. Distilled from Highland barley smoked with heather-rich peat, using the exceptionally pure waters of Loch Katrine, this expression is matured in first fill sherry casks and finished in virgin oak before bottling at a strength of 46% abv.
The nose has aromatic peat and creamy caramel. The palate brings burnt orange zest, heather, toffee and earthy fruits. The finish is long and smooth with a touch of spice and macadamia nuts.
