- SergeGlenglassaugh 19 yo 1986 (40%, OB, 2006) After Inchgower, lots of new indie Glenglassaughs around it seems. This one comes from the last year of distilling. Colour: pale amber. Nose: starts with a rather beautiful balance, nice sherry. Bitter almonds, small oranges, quite some iodine… Nicely liquoricy and oaky, with alos hints of encaustic and gunflint. Not weak despite the 40%. Mouth: now it's a little weakish and slightly drying. Quite some tannins, cardboard… Too bad because it's also nicely orangey and minty.
- Very pleasant on the nose, sherry and oranges, and a breeze from the sea. To drink, this whisky is very soft and well balanced, therefore, almost a bit too soft with the 40v% (matter of taste). In relatively long leaving these fruity sweetness shows again with pleasant notes of wood again, spicy and tobacco notes remain similar on the palate. Overall, I would say, that's not bad.
- "One of the last official bottlings of Glenglassaugh from former owners
Edrington Group before the distillery changed hands, this 19yo was
distilled in 1986, the year the distillery was mothballed, and appeared
on our shelves in 2006."
