    I haven't had Glenglassaugh on my screen yet, but this malt shows what the distillery is made of. I am very stunned. The malt doesn't seem that old, but it has something of the old malts from the 80s. Not so smoothly ironed and with a few rough edges. I love it. The barrel selection is terrific and everything fits together perfectly. I will now try some of them more often. Absolute insider tip and more than attractive in terms of price. So there are still these little treasures at an attractive price.

    My rating system:
    100-95: Exceptional whiskys
    80-94: top whisky
    50-79: standard whisky
    0-49: flops
    • Nose
      The malt is somewhat reminiscent of an old malt from the 80s, a certain old-school style, even if it doesn't look old in terms of age. Waxy beeswax, candles, melted butter, green apple rings from Harribo, unripe green pear, guava, freshly cooked vanilla pudding, slightly tart like rhubarb compote, gooseberry compote, Riesling, marzipan, lightly burnt cakes, pickled sweet sour cherries, Hamburger Franzbrötchen, fresh currant compote Cream, cream yoghurt, with a fairly spicy basic character of soup spices, bouillon cubes, pastry notes of shortbread, cloves, light white pepper, orange peel zest, strong dark forest honey, lime zest, pasta water, a slight stinging of alcohol in the nose, which triggers a cooling effect, but also a little reminiscent of mint, accompanied by beautiful floral notes
    • Taste
      The influence of the wine and sherry barrels can be clearly felt, light ginger spiciness, cream yoghurt, again the melted butter, really buttery puffy popcorn, berries after currant compote, gooseberries, wild strawberry sorbet, blueberries, a complete potpourri of berries, with rhubarb and again the sour cherries that are slightly sweet, sugared strawberries, light chilli heat, freshly ground white pepper, spices after broth, crispy, slightly burnt pretzel sticks, oranges, milk chocolate, caramel candies, Holstein plum jam with a good cinnamon starch, liquorice sticks, it's so mouth-filling and tasty. It's just great fun to try the malt.
    • Finish
      The finish is characterized by the many berry notes, currant compote, strawberry sorbet, sweetened raspberries, slightly bitter mocha, slightly leathery moments, sweetened espresso, hazelnuts, dark chocolate but with a reduced cocoa content, walnuts, roasted almonds, overall the finish is right long

    An acceptable NAS, well marked by the caramel.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Slightly vinous nose, very marked salted butter caramel. Quite simple, without aggressiveness.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Good entry, gourmet, sweet, always on these notes of salted butter caramel. Fades a little quickly despite the 46%.
      The finish is more vegetal, but not too unpleasant for a very young whisky.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Medium finish, slightly vegetal, a little winey. Below the rest.
