Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh 1986 DR

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.17 points

  1. Diedler scored this whisky 74 points Member Senior

    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?

    I love Glenglassaugh. Usually. But this one sucks! The worst i´ve ever had.
    74 well meant Points
    • 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/1916/glenglassaugh-1986-dr
    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 ;-) )
