    Colour: straw. Nose: quite closed at first nosing, just a little spirity, but it’s soon to exhale some very perfumy and slightly soapy notes. Orange skin, lavender, cardboard… Develops on ginger tonic, paraffin, almond milk, but everything is sort of toned down. We’ll try it with a few drops of water after the first sips.

    Mouth: very sweet and almost sugarish, starting on sugared cereals, rum, vanilla liqueur… Quite some oomph but some very simple flavours. Water needed, maybe… Let’s go: the nose gets a little farmier and more phenolic, with a little peat coming through, burning candle, and something meaty, like smoked ham and sausages… It certainly improves, good news. The palate got better as well, still a little sweetish but with quite some dried fruits and also herbal teas. Liquorice as well. The finish isn’t too long, alas, and again a little sweetish. Anyway, Glenglassaugh has never been a high-profile distillery, and this one isn’t bad at all. Perhaps just not as complex as what you’d expect from a malt that’s almost 30 years old.
