Glenglassaugh Torfa Highland Single Malt. Image courtesy Glenglassaugh. This is a 4-year-old peated single malt from Glenglassaugh, and comes from casks filled in 2010.

The nose is malty with a kiss of campfire smoke, a touch of straw, fruity touches of apricots and peaches, and a hint of marmalade. The taste has a good balance of peat, heather, gorse, and a hint of creosote, and touches of grilled pineapple, honey, and freshly-baked apple pie as the smokier touches fade. The finish is long, smooth, and smoky with subtle fruity touches. Excellent! (January, 2015)
