    I had a chance to try before tasting a set of other whisky. And I want to say that the tasting was lost, so bright, rich, delicate, intelligent and balanced was this dram. One of the best I've tried.
    • Nose

      The smell of a fruit bowl. This vase has everything: apples, peaches, apricots, mangoes, oranges, and a little early picked tangerine. All the fruits are fresh, the smells are bright, the balance is excellent, nothing dominates, but only changes. Some baked cupcake.
    • Taste
      94 94
      The taste of all the fruits listed above, to which were added candied fruits and dried mango, pomelo, cookies served with coffee.
    • Finish
      93 93
      The aftertaste is long, fruity, confectionary, velvety, rounded, bright.

    Wow, fruity, tropical and complex. Bottle has been open for some time but WOW..... Don't understand the low scores: complex, a lot of complex fruits and dusty notes. This is really, really good!

    This 37-year-old is the winner of this “trilogy” in my opinion. It beats the 43-year-old and the very average 26-year-old. I wouldn’t pay 400+ Euro’s for this 3x200ml set. Glad that I had the opportunity to taste it, though.

    sergeThe two old Glenglassaugh we’ll have were part of a prestigious triple pack that used to include a 26, à 37 and a 43 years old, each in a 20cl bottle. Colour: full gold. Nose: superb. All on honeycomb, flowers, milk chocolate and fruit jams, mainly plums and apricots. Some mango chutney too. Frankly, this nose is brilliant. With water: orgasmic honey and ripe fruits style. Mouth (neat): a fruit bomb, pretty much in the Caperdonich 1972 style. I’m sure you see what I mean. Honeys, stewed fruits, jams, a little cough syrup and just the right amount of pepper, nutmeg and cloves. With water: deliciously citrusy now. Takes water like a swimming champ. Amazing freshness. Finish: medium long, with more pepper and other spices from the wood, as almost always. Maybe something slightly sourish but nothing important. Comments: terrifically complex, fresh and fruity

      The overall 5 levels are very online, showing the overall aroma of ripe flowers and fruits, ripe grapefruit (flesh part), ripe oranges, blackcurrants, and ripe red grapes; the aroma of 1972/40yo is heavy among them, and the traditional sherry The feeling of the old wine is more, and the rest of the wine smells are still light and elegant; 26 and 37 have a certain sense of fat and powder, and the aroma is more "pink", "noodle", and grainy; Alcohol aspects , generally very good, if you have to compare, the smell of alcohol in 43yo is relatively heavier among these five (actually, it is still a very weak sense of stimulation); the top three in terms of personal preferences in the smell of fragrance: 1, rare series barrels 37 ; 2, 1972, 41yo; 3, the fragrance of the rare barrels 43yo, 37yo, I horizontally change the richness, especially in the details, there is a faint ginger flower smell, giving a sense of luxury; the other two have a grand sense of smell Very good, and they are all very rich and full; the rest are actually very good, and you can get 90+ when you take them out.

      The 26yo and 40yo are compared horizontally as soon as they enter, so I won’t go into details. The key point is, 1972-41yo: the oiliness is very high, continuous and delicate, very classical Sydney wine, which I think The taste of old wine, rich and ripe berries, ebony, oak, a little honey, dried dates, round and thick, very Sydney wine shelf; in addition, let's talk about the rare cask 43yo, which is very tropical The flavor of fresh fruit and fruit is added with great honey, which is very sweet, but not too greasy at all. The sweetness is very natural, creating a sense of experience of fresh fruit afternoon tea, but at the same time, the richness, Deep, it will never make you feel that it is a young new wine. Compared with 41yo, the oiliness will suffer a bit, making the wine a little lighter, but these two people feel completely different trends. The satisfaction is very high, these two are enough to represent the highest performance of the winery.

      After drinking it, 1972-41yo/37yo/43yo is more comfortable. In terms of strength and length, 37yo is more eye-catching, with high strength, dry, dried fruit, and some medicinal fragrance; 41 and 43, long, honey , syrup, oak, some floral. In the overall horizontal review, the 5 pieces are passable, but in general, I feel that this link is not the advantage of the winery, and the overall trend is too downward.

    In this case, the fruits clearly dominate.
    Very complex. First class single malt.
    • Nose
      92 92
      A real fruit basket is the first thing that hits you in the nose. Very intense fruity with tropical fruits, plums, raisins, berries, vanilla and caramel. Floral notes, wax and honey, spices, dry oak, aged leather. Some ginger will appear later. Very complex aroma profile
    • Taste
      92 92
      here again first of all the fruit basket wrapped in old leather, again the tropical fruits, vanilla, caramel, plums, banana, mango, raisins, notes of sherry. The spicy oak notes are back too. Honey, some cherries and dark berries, becoming slightly bitter towards the end, which is not unpleasant
    • Finish
      91 91
      Here the leather-wrapped fruit basket is now filled with cloves. Splendid. Very complex and many of the flavors from the palate are also found here, albeit to a lesser extent.

  7. Winex scored this whisky 96 points Member Junior

    The finest fruity aroma, which already from afar begins to drive all extraneous conversations and thoughts away and switch all attention to the main thing. The most delicate and at the same time bright scattering of berries and fruits simply explodes the brain in the temptation to taste it. A sip, crumbles and plays in the mouth with a bouquet of thousands of flavors, multifaceted like diamonds. And when you emerge from an endless pool of aftertaste, you catch yourself thinking - you have to repeat it!

    One of the most complex whiskys I've ever had in my glass.
    Counting everything up takes too long.

  17. Thermidor scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    What a nose and taste! By them I could rate this as lovely as the Glenglassaugh 44yo mini (94 pts.), but the finish in that one felt deeper. Still, I think this is one point better than the 43yo (92) from the same 3x200ml pack. Compared to the older ones, the 26yo from that pack was pedestrian and uninteresting, with a lacking finish.
    Thanks to member Waykid for letting me taste all of the bottles in the pack.
    • Nose
      A strongly fruity and complex nose. No trace of ethanol or any bite from the ABV, just this sublime note of the most expensive and well made gummi candy in the world. No overt oak or tannins, nor sugariness. It's flawless, really, with some notes of barley and porridge in the back.
    • Taste
      Fatty and candylike, but in a decidedly good way. Full and rich on the tongue - divine, to be exact. The sweetest armagnac ever. Delicious and joyful, without flaws.
    • Finish
      The mouth leads you to expect an epic finish, but here I find it's not quite as fabulous as on the tongue. It lasts for a while, but doesn't provide as much detail as it does in the mouth.

  18. St. Pauli scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Disappointing.
    • Nose
      Smells rather artificial after pouring, even like Jägermeister. Sorry... It's overly woody, with a lot of spices in there. Is this a joke? New wood? Let's wait if the beloved honey and fruits that were promised, are still coming. 
      Finally, vanilla arrives. After a while, stwed plums is all I'm getting. It's rather disappointing.
    • Taste
      The palate is full-bodied, warming on spices like a bourbon with a high rye content. Vanilla, pine needles, and again not so much on fruit but rather on plain wood. 
    • Finish
      Rather short, again on the spicy side with nutmeg, clove and cardamom. Further, a hint of vanilla and plain wood.

  19. Malinois scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    I agree with boy_genius_ck. This whisky style is just not for me. Didn't expect such a whisky in this trilogy. The 26yo and 43yo are far far way better. They are old school sherry where the distillery character has his saying. The 26yo is quite enjoying but not to complex, where the 43yo is complex. Very glad to have tasted them!

  20. boy_genius_ck scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    bitter, grassy, sweet and floral, a typical highlander style without anything special

  21. dicembre29 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    CURT

    Nose: Deep, dark fruits. Briny dill. Latex paint. Marmalade. Eucalyptus. Hints of red licorice.

    Palate: Deep, dark notes reminiscent of old sherry casks, but…apparently not likely sherry. Licorice All Sorts.

    Thoughts & Impressions: Austere maturity, but still vibrant. “Including the majestic møøse”

    MALTMONSTERNOSE: Jammy stewed fruits, caramel, vanilla, dill and mint

    TASTE: Fruit-o-plenty, floral and some pepper

    FINISH: Medium to long

    ASSESSMENT: According to the Kangaroo Cowboy in the group this is Cougar malt, didn’t know they had Cougars in the outback. This was one of the best malts of the night and loved by all, so we thought that it was best enjoyed by Sjöfn (Viking Goddess of love)

    Stunning nose! Complex fruit bomb with honey and vanilla. Perfect balance. Emerging citrus/lemon/tangerine with water. Medium to long finish.

  25. Drochaid scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    A triple pack of 200ml bottles containing 26 year old, 37 year old and

    43 year old single malt scotch whiskies. They are all bottled on site

    without chill filtration and without the addition of colour. The 26 year

    old is bottled at 46% abv, the 37 year old at 54.8% abv and the 43 year

    old at 48.7% abv. (glenglassaugh.co.uk)

  26. QuarterCentury scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    A small number of casks have been left maturing in Glenglassaugh`s

    warehouses during its silent period and this exclusive pack is the

    result of a careful selection of 3 of these casks. These whiskies are

    among the finest examples of Single Malt Scotch Whisky, winning plaudits

    and top awards in Jim Murray`s Whisky Bible, International Wine and

    Spirit Competition and San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

    37yo 54.8% - Palate: A delightfully sweet and powerful whisky that is

    reminiscent of wedding cake. A rich and sophisticated dram that is still

    fresh and fruity with hints of melon and lychee.
