  2. Prof.Schoof did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This Whisky was sold for 500 € at Whiskyauction in Jan.2017

  3. SteveW110 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    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 €

  4. 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.

  7. Drochaid scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Nose:

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

    Palate:

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

    Finish:

    Relaxed and fruity with gentle aniseed.http://glenglassaugh.co.uk/onlineshop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=48

  8. 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.
