Nose: Yeah, that's exactly what I love about the glass-eyes - tropical fruit salad with mango and papaya, a little spice from the refill Sherry Cask, cinnamon, nutshell, dried fruit, nougat, turkish honey, the fruits are getting more complex, ripe mandarin, some banana, sugared peach, fresh passion fruit, grapefruit, with almonds, a little oak, fresh vanilla pod, all melded into a very round, fat whisky that is hard to beat in terms of complexity
Taste: it starts incredibly sweet and fat, the alcohol is perfectly integrated, many fruits, banana comes to it, a lot of spices from the wood, especially cinnamon, oily, nutshell, you do not want to swallow it, but let it roll over your tongue for hours
Finish: forever, again this incredible range of tropical fruits, followed by a lovely fresh oak that will never be dry or intrusive. The malt stands a long time in the throat and then ends very slowly with fruits, marzipan, cherries, vanilla and a little coconut cream.
Water: No, just not, it does not need a single drop, it's so perfectly matched. Nevertheless, the attempt: Two drops make it even rounder, more fruity, even more complex.
Conclusion: It is on my eternal leaderboard in 2nd place, beaten so far only by an old Bowmore. For me, the best glass eye ever bottled. Many fans of Glenglassaugh prefer barrel # 2891, but personally I find this a little better. Even the kanpp 700 EUR, which are due today at auctions for here, he is loosely worth. The whisky itself convinces with a huge abundance of fruit flavors, supported by the excellent refill Sherry Cask, which adds many spices and subtle sherry flavors. The combination Glenglassaugh, 1972 and Refill Sherry fits just like ass on lid. You can just smell it for hours (it oxidizes very slowly in the glass, unlike other old sherry bombs), rolling in the mouth for several minutes and then just happy to enjoy the eternally long finish and at the same time makes anticipation for the next dram this excellent drop. At the latest the long finish ensures that you will not forget this whisky all its life. Simple: Potions - 96 points
