Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh 1968 - The Manager's Legacy

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.61 points

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

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

  2. 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 €

  3. boborban scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    SergeGlenglassaugh 1968/2010 ‘The Manager’s Legacy’ (44.9%, OB, Bert Forsyth, refill butt, 300 bottles) The 1974 ‘Jim Cryle’ was fantastic (WF 92), so this ‘Bert Forsyth’ shouldn’t be bad either… Colour: deep gold. Nose: su-perb combination of precious leather, kumquats, pipe tobacco, honeydew, quince jelly and cedar wood. The oak’s getting bigger after a while, and it does display whiffs of dry herbal tea, but all that’s rather an asset in this context. Mouth: superb start, on figs and dates, but the oak is getting a tad too loud after a few seconds. I like the earthiness (and the green tea) notes but it’s all a tad too drying for my taste, and maybe not fruity enough despite the nice notes of blackcurrant and blackberry jams. Bags of dry spices and more and more dry walnut liqueur. Finish: quite long, dry, slightly bitter and green. Comments: right, all that may sound too negative, and indeed it’s still a wonderful old whisky, but it’s just that both the ‘Jim Cryle’ and the 45yo that we tried the other day were mucho superior in my view. Great nose, though.

     

  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.
