    http://www.weinkenner.de/2015/1972er-glenglassaugh-for-andrea-caminneci-cask-2891-36318/ Color: pale gold
    Nose: Very round and fruity aromas of sweet apricots, bananas, yellow mirabelles and creamy honey. In addition, slightly bland notes of wet sawdust, furniture polish and some oak - but very pleasant.
    Taste: Powerful and ultra-fruity! A salty fruit bomb with complementary notes of marzipan, nougat and toffee as well as malt-coated herbs. Finish with more paprika, spicy chili chocolate and notes of mint, eucalyptus and vanilla. What a brilliant variety!
    Finish: Infinitely long with a whole truckload of vanilla and fresh mint on the finish. With lessening freshness, the fruity-sweet notes come fully back to the fore. Underlaid with a dry, smoky undertone (coal, ash), almonds and honey-sweet fruit until it dries.
    93 points (nose: 92 / taste: 94 / finish: 92)

  2. LordBellamy scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Tropical fruit, cherry, mirabelle, apricot, mango, passion fruit, almonds / marzipan, vanilla, honey bomb, a few yellow plums, carried by spicy oak

    Taste: incredibly oily, fruit explosion, mirabelle plum and yellow plum, mango, passion fruit, light oak, honey sweetness Finish: infinitely long, cherry, almonds, mirabelles, vanilla, honey and sugar beet syrup

    Conclusion is quite simple: Best Dram ever - 96 points !!!!

  4. autowatch092 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Bright amber
    Nose: Prunes, cherries, gingerbread, roses, hints of pepper and cinnamon.
    Palate: Cherries, milk chocolate, honey, raisins, a little pepper and nutmeg.
    Finish: Very long, dry and fruity
    Overall: If you like Black Forest cake, this is your whisky! The cherry and chocolate notes ot this malt are simply amazing, the floral hints are restricted to the nose. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy.

    Glenglassaugh May 1972-2010 30yo OB for Andrea Caminneci 70cl 59.1% vol. Refill Butt # 2891, Bottle No.168 / 303 This is surprising Glenglassaugh 1972 surprised by the luxurious bottle that does not seem to be Glenglassaugh! what? This bright red box is! Sounds like SV? What? What? If it was so gorgeous, what would you do if your work was too dressed? Color: Glenglassaugh It seems like glass melts like hard water, a sign of a citrus system, like Glenglassaugh's like decanter Nose: Surprisingly smoky is unexpected.The camphor and mosquito coil incense Smoke like it.There are not delicious tinctures in the salad and subtle nuances of the apple Attack: A somewhat heavy snappy jab firmly in proportion to Glenglassaugh.Lemon squash! Honey lemon! Oronamine C! Body: I ​​do not think that it is Glenglassaugh, the foundation of the lower body solidly, like the elegant lightness that can pass through it Taste: It's like mango? What powerfulness like mix juice in department store basement can be enjoyed with Glenglassaugh? What? What? Hot pushing flavor like guava juice.Hot apple tea.While there is a definite assertion but truly beautiful place of Glenglassaugh.The distillery district is such a long and mature super masterpiece strangely I decided to become gorgeous, trying to become parahumi in a strange way or not having a plenty of sherry, never a refreshing feeling of refreshing lemons and Sawanan, a lingering finish of pickles of an old coffee shop Fiinish: aged Only a few drinks are enough for more than enough.The orange gelato melts in a loose sweet and sourness.In dry heat, dried fruits carried with sugar melted.With such thickness, beautiful like Hyuga summer Falling over and finishing a long finish! It was not a tasty distillery, but because of Glenglassaugh, it was a wonderful cup that I even thought that it could be just a nice 30yo flavor. https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyharsudj92hd
