Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh Octaves Peated Batch 2
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.26 points
- Nose: Sweet notes, raisins, some wood.
Taste: Quite a lot of sweet elements. Smoke hidden. Unfortunately beige without clear elements. It has a flat taste.
Rating: 83 | 100 Finish: fairly long, slightly smoky. Rather, the bottle from the basic series.
- distillate bathed in bourbon casks, PX and porto:
sweetness on the nose with sherry, vanilla, lemon and smoke, some wet wood
the mouth leaves on a moderate peat, peppery spices quite intense, feeling of freshness in return
vanilla gives the lemon a little sweetness, the fruit perfumes, there is malt, lean cocoa and the peat that comes back.
the finish is nice on the same scents with fruity peat and macerated cooked fruits, a good dram but it lacks years to have a lasting depth.
