8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.61 points
- This Whisky was sold for 500 € at Whiskyauction in Jan.2017
- 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 €
- 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.
- Because of the slightly bitter touch in the palate point deduction.
From a bottle division, so a sample bottle.
Typical Glassa nose, tropical fruits, then later mint.
Creamy, harmonious, again the tropical fruits, pleasant oak
Creamy, unfortunately at the end a slightly bitter note.
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.http://glenglassaugh.co.uk/onlineshop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=48
- The third of Glenglassaugh`s Manager`s quartet. Impressively old (distilled in December 1968) and limited to 300 bottles.
