  3. LordBellamy scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nose: very light and fresh, no trace of the typical 70s glassy, ​​rather floral, some vanilla, pineapple and quince, some oak and hazelnuts behind, surprisingly also very subtle smoke, some wax (OBF?) Comes through

    Taste: strong oneness with vanilla and some fruit, with a hint of mineral, then also caramelised oak

    Finish: medium long, fruity, oak, some flowerbed, pineapple and behind dry with lots of black tea and again some OBF with wax on the teeth

    He does not get water from me

    Conclusion: A very different glass eye, as you know it from this distillery .... could also be a bourbon-matured Glen Grant, he reminds me strongly of the 16yo OA by Glen Grant, but with a little more buzz. Overall not bad, but not really good malt - 84 points

    SergeGlenglassaugh 29 yo 1976/2006 (48.9%, Coopers Choice) Colour: pale gold. Nose: this one starts very fresh, clean, as floral as it can be. Buttercups, daisies, light vanilla sauce, roasted hazelnuts… Interesting hints of smoke and wet stone before it gets quite farmier, more vegetal (hay, barnyard, herbal tea). Hints of rubber getting through after a while but nothing disturbing. Mouth: quite powerful at the attack that combines vanilla, oak and quince jelly. Rather earthy as well (roots, gentian, tea, wild mushrooms, a little salt), getting then more liquoricy, honeyed, caramelly… Bold and classic. Finish: rather long, oaky, fruity and vanilled, with a nice aftertaste on canned pineapple. Flawless.
