Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh 1967 - The Manager's Legacy

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.89 points

  1. Marius scored this whisky 98 points Member Senior

    A nose to die for! One of my favourite whiskies without doubt.

  2. autowatch092 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Chestnut
    Nose: Any fruit you can imagine, vanilla, hints of liquorice.
    Palate: Rich fruit salad, tea, hints of fresh herbs and liquorice.
    Finish: Very long and fruity.
    Overall: This exceptional malt can only be described as a fruit bomb with an incredible density of flavours. Your wallet might be less happy about this dram, though.

    SergeGlenglassaugh 43 yo 1967/2010 'The Managers Legacy' (40.4%, OB, 200 bottles) This baby was bottled as a tribute to Walter Grant, who was distillery manager until 1986. Colour: amber. Nose: it's not whisky, it's some kind of old jam and it's truly wonderful. A maelstrom of figs, prunes, tamarind jam, blueberry pie, overripe plums, passion fruits, rich honey, beeswax, old sweet wine (Sauternes), sultanas… Really, it's beautiful. It could have been one of these very old Strathislas by G&M. Now, will the palate match the nose? It's not always the case with very old low-strength whiskies, let's see… Mouth: yeah well, the oak took over I'm afraid. It's still pleasant and even good, but you have to enjoy this drying tannicity. Plum pie topped with a lot of cinnamon and white pepper. Finish: medium long, all on old walnuts and bags of cinnamon. Strong black tea. Comments: maybe that was to be expected. The nose was absolutely magnificent but the palate had too much oak. Now, some tasters are less sensitive to oak than others and I know some fellow MMs scored this one very highly. As far as this 'Manager's Legacy' series is concerned, my fav was the 1974 'Jim Cryle', by far!

    The rest of the cask was probably bottled into crystal decanters:

  7. Drochaid scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    Tasting Note

    Colour: Dark Amber.

    Nose: Rich, red apples, ripe bananas, creme Brule, caramelised sugar and lots of sweet sherry oak.

    Palate: Soft with lots of sweet tropical fruit salad, red liquorice, nutty-vanilla and softly spiced sherry oak tones.

    Finish:  Velvet smooth and warminghttp://glenglassaugh.co.uk/onlineshop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=49

  8. alectron scored this whisky 92 points Specialist

    • Nose
      old malt, fruit liquor, herbal, dunnage warehouse, pineapple, peach, fresh, slight rubber note, tobacco, slight beeswax (94)
    • Taste
      waxy, herbal, bitter, sweet dried fruits, leather & tobacco, malt cookies (92)
    • Finish
      interesting sweet/sour notes, mango, passion fruit, chocolate, but a tad too dry, (90) This peaks very fast, after 30 minutes, bitterness / wood & tannins become quite overpowering and kill the balance (84)

  9. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The last in a series of four single cask releases to celebrate the
    achievements and influences of Glenglassaugh distillery managers during
    the period 1964 - 1986. Limited to 200 bottles.
