  1. MaltNerd scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Tropical fruits, honey, sweet red apples, candied orange, milk chocolate, vanilla and traces of coffee beans. The taste is silky and rich, mouthfeeling with rancio: sunflower seeds, apples with honey, roasted nuts, salt, citrus and leather. The finish is completed with aromas of tropical fruits, tobacco, licorice and mint. Medium length, very brisk.

  3. dRambo scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Filigree but extremely good - the nose is a dream of complexity with great flawless beauty - these notes are far from exhaustive - the enjoyment was more important to me - dream material

    a malt for eternally nosing and drinking in not too small sips that are easy to chew
    • Nose
      93 93
      Polished wood, furniture polish, ground leather, old spine with a little warmth show sweet floral aromas that remind me of lilac and freshly blooming roses, then sourly fruity sherry aroma rises - red groats, raspberry pulp, you can already smell the tannins, and there is delicate chocolate , more leather, sweet tobacco
    • Taste
      92 92
      Dried plums, sawdust from old wood, subtle mint freshness mixes with dried figs and dates, bramble, blueberries, always present venerable notes of old polished wood - always subtle, always a backdrop - very tasty and never obligatory - balance and understatement with perfect texture - works he is a bit reluctant with the first sip, so he builds up more volume with each further sip - chewing brings me a delicate, tasty, subtle note of sulfur - more old rather musty wood, forest floor, walnut, hazelnut chocolate,
    • Finish
      90 90
      he suffers a little from chewing him so long because he is just so good - nevertheless he is the weakest in the finish compared to the nose and palate and does not bring me anything new here - flawless - medium length

  6. SteveW110 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Although I do not know if I got the right malt from the bottle division, but it is to be assumed and frankly I do not understand the reviews.

    For me a typical example of price / performance veneering.
    (more expensive / old malt = must be good)

    -> he is not.
    Would not buy it for 150 €

  7. Sjaunja scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    Because of the slightly bitter touch in the palate point deduction.

    From a bottle division, so a sample bottle.
    • Nose
      Typical Glassa nose, tropical fruits, then later mint.
    • Taste
      Creamy, harmonious, again the tropical fruits, pleasant oak
    • Finish
      Creamy, unfortunately at the end a slightly bitter note.

  10. Drochaid scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur


    Fruit candies, pears and guavas with gentle leafy, floral tones, and sweet, sawn oak spice.


    Creamy and sweet. Tropical fruits: dried mango and guava, walnuts, aniseed and oak spice.


    Relaxed and fruity with gentle aniseed.

  11. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The third of Glenglassaugh`s Manager`s quartet. Impressively old (distilled in December 1968) and limited to 300 bottles.
