4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    An excellent sherry werewolf, imposing, sweet and relaxed in flavor, changes dramtically in taste / finish, sheds sheep skin, shows fangs and plays with muscles.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, sweet-sherry, chocolate, raisins, dried apricots, Indian incenses, spicy wood, pipe tobacco, pastry notes, baklava, prunes, rotten foliage, herbarium, furniture lacquer, light mineral-metallic and sulfur shades, very thick and juicy , oriental bazaar under the scorching sun.
    • Taste
      Powerful, rich, more mobile and stiff than aroma, more wood, prunes, a lot of raisins, cola, liquorice, kvass wort, furniture lacquer, dried grapes, burnt match heads, mixed colors.
    • Finish
      The continuation of taste, refreshing, cola, exploding caramel, liquorice, oak, coffee, raisins, burnt rusks, metallic acidity.

    I want to relativise my tasting note a bit. After a long time, over 45 min, the Malt evolves in a good direction and becomes quite drinkable, even enjoyable.
    But should i change my rating therefore?

    • Nose
      First nice dark fruits, rum raisins, leather polish ans strong alc. Hints of apple vinegar and even some sauerkraut + geranium water °_°
      With more time and air the vinegar stays back, but still not what i call a good nose.

      +water: More floral, less sauerkraut, less alcohol, some chicken madras :D  a bit more pleasant.
    • Taste
      Bitter, sharp alcohor, moldy blood orange, omg, why am i drinking this?

      +water: Better, not sooooo sharp + some floral notes. But still not good.
    • Finish
      Bitter, bitter, bitter, still something moldy, some interesting Spices at the end but also sharp alcohol till the end.

      +water: Same as the taste

    A very nice sherried Glenglassaugh. No off notes.

    I compared three Glenglassaugh at one evening:

    http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/1254/glenglassaugh-1984-wm
    and
    http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/7366/glenglassaugh-1976-rm

    The Wilson Morgan has a bitterness in the final, so this is why this one takes the third place. The better sherried whisky in the DR one, really nice no off notes, enjoyable.
    A bit out the range, because bourbon matured, is the Dorment.
    This is the one with the most Glenglassaugh character (well it is a bit obvoius, because there is no sherry which overlays the fine and fruity Glenglassaugh style ;-) )
