    A very complex and wonderfully balanced well matured whisky. Nothing is good about a good maturation period. It's fun in all respects and you don't want to swallow at all. Elegant and exciting, only a little more alcohol strength would possibly suit him a little better.
    • Nose
      92 92
      heavy complex sherry notes; Dried fruits (dates, raisins); plums; juicy-sweet oranges; White chocolate; Caramel; Honey; spices; again and again slightly floral notes come through; some oak
      Very complex nose, the aromas are varied and change constantly.
    • Taste
      91 91
      mild, soft and oily; flattering mouthfeel - a real gentleman; oranges; plums; raisins; chocolatey (towards dark chocolate); also many spices without being able to disassemble them individually; with delicate, peppery-spicy oak
      A wonderful mouthfeel. No bad notes, everything is super balanced and harmonious in the mouth - you don't want to swallow it at all.
    • Finish
      91 91
      long; Dried fruit (raisins); a lot of espresso; Dark chocolate; nutty; spicy oak

    A wonderful whisky with a nose that looks like an endless loop and does not want to end. Velvety and flattering on the palate without being alcoholic. Consistently nutty with great roasted aromas. Only the finish is surprisingly entertaining and I think it could be longer and more intense.
    A whisky with elegant lightness, high fun and enjoyment factor that you can spend a long time with - 14.12.2019
    • Nose
      After 20 minutes in the glass you are greeted by a very mild but full nose with lots of white chocolate, nougat and juicy citrus aromas in the style of candied oranges or blood oranges, the alcohol is palpable, it carries and accompanies the aromas, a brief swivel in the direction sourly with pineapple and lychee, but only briefly, because dry fruits like figs, dates, raisins follow.
      After a few more minutes it becomes denser, waxy and even flowery, sweet honey flows towards you and is replaced by a light perfume note.
      Another scene change follows and the spice and aroma come through, lovage, the whisky becomes meatier and roasted aromas spread, roasted pine nuts, pumpkin seed oil
    • Taste
      First impression is cooling, wow is the mild and velvety, not a bit of alcohol noticeable, immediately the roasted aromas, nutty-aromatic, nuts in all variations, candied, swept in honey, roasted, like from the fair, spicy, the barrel tingling, ginger
    • Finish
      medium

    Nose: The first nose reminds me a lot of the Glenfarclas 25, which is just my favorite in the bar. The Glenglassaugh has more chocolate in the nose. Relaxed and set, he slides down the floor into the couch. Marzipan, sweet orange, a little grapefruit, very smooth oak with some tobacco. He also has a nice mix of jam, soft sherry and red and light fruits. There's so much in it ... caramel comes to the fore and gets stronger.

    Taste: very sweet, smooth mouthfeel, velvety it hangs on the cheeks, very strong saliva stimulating. Mild orange juice with a beautiful oak, kiba (so cherry and banana juice mixture), honey and caramel. Almost no alcohol is noticeable, almost like a liqueur. At the second sip, the oak is much clearer and adds spice.

    Finish: long sweetness with spicy oak is as expected dominant but still nice and mild. Dark chocolate with light fruitiness.

    A whisky with a calming effect, very pleasant, mild, set. There is nothing burning, no flavors and very tasty.
