Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

Nose: Very fruity and almost new make-ish. Pear drops. Malty and sweet with some vanilla and sweet dough a minute before it’s inserted into the oven. Very nice.

Palate: Cinnamon dough with nutmeg to balance it. Then getting fruitier with a hint if dried fruit. Buttery wood. less fruity than the nose. Feels older than it’s three years on the palate, while the nose does feel youngish.

Finish : Medium, with fruit and toffee.

All on all a very nice dram, young on the nose but feels so much older on the palate. Very drinkable and fresh. Great promise, and I’m sure it will be a stunner when it’s 5 or 8 years of age. Good stuff.

Glenglassaugh 'Revival' (46%, OB, 2012) So a very young one from last year. I think there's another very young one just out but I haven't got it. Colour: gold. Nose: starts on smoky porridge and a little ginger, with some mashed potatoes and quite some grass. Then hints of green plums, baker's yeast, quite some soot and a layer of gingery oak as well as a little kumquat. So very young spirit with good personality, coated with quite some oak. After a few minutes, more and more orange blossom, which is nice and goes well with the gingery side. After even more minutes, becomes massively vanilla-ed and slightly varnishy but it's still no true wood-bomb. Yeasty. Mouth: very grassy, spicy and gingery at very first sips, then much fruitier (greengages, gooseberries). There's also quite some oak in there in my opinion, which makes it a little bitter. Not the easiest one but I think that’s good news... Finish: quite long, a little bitter, peppery. Cider apples and touches of bubblegum. Comments: shows promises, as they say. In a way, the fact that it isn’t easy and still quite rough (and, above all, not too sweet/sugary/fruity) at such young age should mean that this spirit will age very well. Remember what the old Scots used to say, ‘if the new make’s too good, the whisky will be crap’. I like this baby’s character, the future should be bright.

Also die Nase finde ich gar nicht so schlecht.
Sicher, der Kollege ist noch richtig Grün hinter den Ohren, dafür gibt es ja auch Früchte wie Zitrone, Mandarine und was die Leute da noch so alles finden.

Geschmacklich ist der nichts für mich, ich war richtig froh als das sprittige ging, denn der Nachgeschmack mit Eiche leicht süß, und nicht aufdringlich, war wiederum nicht übel.
