Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh 1966

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.70 points

  1. P.A.O.K.you_are did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Glenglassaugh 45 yo (49.2%, OB, decanter, refill sherry hogshead, +/-2011)
    I loved the 40yo from two years ago (WF 92), let’s hope this baby will
    be in the same vein… Colour: amber. Nose: this is much punchier than the
    Dalmore, less delicately floral and fruity and rather more mineral and
    even a tad metallic (in a great way). Most interestingly, it smells a
    bit like some great whisky that would have spent many years in bottles.
    Develops on marzipan, a little leather, orange zests, old cognac, then
    whiffs of old wardrobe, unlit cigar, ham, maybe a little cardboard, old
    wine cellar, soot, aluminium (or mess tin…) I like this nose a lot but
    the palate might be trickier (with this kind of nose)… Mouth: no, this
    palate is lovely. Sure it’s not quite as complex as the nose – as almost
    always with these very old whiskies -  but the ‘feeling’ is excellent,
    rich yet very elegant, beautifully spicy, smoky and earthy, with also
    these metallic touches once again, mushrooms (morels, yeah, yeah) and
    then more tropical notes. Mango chutney, bananas flambéed (with rum,
    obviously), tinned pineapples… There’s also a little beeswax, then more
    black pepper and chilli… In fact, it’s quite complex on the palate as
    well! Finish: fairly long, a tad drier now, as always, a little
    leathery, grassy… And unexpectedly mustardy. Orange zests as well.
    Comments: great. Same very high quality as the 40yo and no excessive
    woodiness whatsoever. SGP:561 - 92 points.

  5. Drochaid scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    This single barrel bottling is an unbelievable 45 years matured in a Refill Sherry Hogshead on the coast of the Moray Firth (1966-2011). A very rare filling, in a polished, engraved crystal carafe, with matching crystal glasses and a satin-lined rosewood box.
    Nose-rich and extremely attractive, seductively sweet aromas of Brazil nuts, dark sherry, crushed red apples, dark toffee, ginger nut bisquits and delicate oak spices. Extremely lively for the age.
    Full and very round on the palate. Rich sherry influences, ginger and dark chocolate with a penetrating, intense aroma of cherries in the middle.
    The finish is very long with a great sherry oak tartness, red apples and chocolate gingers.

  6. granella2003 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This is a grand aged whisky that can be enjoyed long into the night
    • Nose
      Dense notes of brandy soaked fruitcake and dried fruits macerating in thick
      sherry
    • Taste
      The mouth-feel is full and velvety with dark dried fruits and warm winter spices in a gloriously smooth palate.
    • Finish
      The finish is exceptionally long with a medley of winter spices and a harmony of dried berry fruits

  7. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A fantastic premium expression from the folks at Glenglassaugh,

    distilled in 1966, aged for 45 years and bottled in 2011 in a shiny

    decanter.
