Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh Port Wood Finish

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.63 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Nose: ui, that's difficult. Sour red wine, the sweetness of the port does not get through at all, but very oak-accented. The red fruits look very artificial and are most reminiscent of rhubarb compote, even the very young age you notice the malt clearly, he is sprightly and unbalanced, a lot of white pepper. In the background, some pineapple and caramel fight through again and again

    Taste: a very strong, alcoholic start with the white pepper. But then there is some sweetness from the Portfass, also caramel, vanilla and a decent portion of wood is added

    Finish: it's gone very fast, a very short finish. The aromas of the taste with pepper, red fruits and caramel, and vanilla with oak are repeated

    with water: water is quite good, amazingly it does not break down like many other young whisky, the peppery pungency disappears.

    Conclusion: Not the big litter, too young and a port wine barrel that reminds rather of sour red wine. Anyone who likes artificial notes and above all rhubarb will love the malt here ... not 77 points

  2. mister glenfarclas scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Young and feisty. Pungent alcohol. Mostly sour fruits.
    I´ve had worse. But not that much to be honest.
    Awful value for money ratio!

  4. Achany scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    the nose is wonderful fruity, grapes, dark berries, sweet with nice malty influence. the first sip started promising, port influence wonderful but than it got bitter quite quick and that lasted. finish is a bit too bitter as well for me. Allright dram, too bitter for me.

  7. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      A fresh and sweet fruity nose and for me again that maritime touch as in the peated port wood finish. Also the colour is a little rosé again but beside the colour I can't find a lot of that Ruby port pipe in here.
    • Taste
      Pepper to start with the red fruit sweetness. Almost similar to the peated port wood finish. This one might have some smoke in it what makes it a little dry in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Short finish but not enough there to remember.

    The central note is in my opinion English wine gum. I still like it very much despite my young age.
