    Enthusiasm: Nose 3/5 Mouth 4/5 Final 3/5 Whisky n ° 1692
    • Nose
      Beautiful impression of maturity - with frangipane especially, but it lacks a little watts.
    • Taste
      Sweet, mature and spicy. VERY balanced!
    • Finish
      Honest persistance.

    Serge says:

    Glenglassaugh
    21 yo (46%, OB, Glass Decanter, +/-2009)

    Colour: pale gold. Nose: this one
    is more polished and probably more
    elegant but the general profile is
    pretty close to the 1983’s.
    Light, moderately fragrant, pleasantly
    flowery and honeyed. More vanilla
    as well, and also notes of apple pie,
    strawberry pie and butterscotch, fresh
    butter and just a little sawdust.
    The oakiness grows bigger over time
    (quite some cinnamon and a little
    mint). Mouth: once again we find the
    same profile as with the 1983, only
    much bigger this time and rather fruitier
    too, with notes of peppered pear drops,
    should that exist. Gets then frankly
    grassy and malty, with the oak singing
    rather loud. Strong tea, Nescafé
    and a little vanilla plus white pepper
    and cinnamon. It’s not very
    ‘wide’ but there’s
    good quality oak behind the whole.
    Finish: medium long, the oak giving
    it kind of a slight sourness. Cider
    apples? Liquorice wood. Comments:
    it’s not a luscious old Speysider
    such as the ones that usually end
    up in decanters, but it’s pleasant.
    SGP:331 – 82 points.

  8. barryfox915 scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Straw.
    Nose: Malty, grassy, on green apples, hay, and some
    elderberries.
    Taste: Oaky to very oaky, with light juicy notes, some melon,
    lots of vanilla (custard), on apples, tobacco and some white pepper. Diluted, it
    becomes very much on biscuits. The finish is medium, grassy, malty, on grist and
    vanilla.
    General Impression: A very nice Glenglassaugh, very much on
    biscuits.
