    [April, 2016]  Oh, oh, old Glenglassaugh - almost no one noticed the potential of this fine small distillery for decades.  But when the new owners started to bottle old 70ies vintages out of the impressive stocks still available in the warehouses Glenglassaugh took off...

    This bottling is from the time when "Snow White" still was sleeping.  But it clearly shows the potential of this whisky - if you have the patience to let Snow White slowly wake up...  Yes, this dram needs some time and air to open up.  After that it is a fine example of an excellent old style "fat" whisky - slowly fermented and slowly distilled to save all the nice flavours and oils a great whisky is based upon.

    I really like it... and I bought the bottle for 80 Euro in November, 2007.
