Yes, unfortunately only a 2cl sample, but even from it it smells temptingly sweet. There is liquid gold in the glass, which conjures up sluggish tears with wide windows on the inside of the glass.
The nose is magically seductive. Vanilla pod, curd cheese strudel with icing sugar on top, very dark honey. The alcohol is hardly noticeable. A pleasant scent of white chocolate rises and right next to it someone has baked apples with one or two cloves in the oven. Currants with whipped cream and caramelized nuts are complemented by moderately strong pepper. The scotch looks soft, creamy and sweet. At the same time, I have some cool peppermint in my nose. Grated coconut, walnuts and shells of peanuts are placed on a banana and pear mousse. A touch of fig, a little more apricot and delicious yeast pastries frolic in the nosing glass. This old, elegant malt is extremely pleasant to smell.
The whisky is very sweet and fruity with a full body in the mouth. Clear vanilla, caramelized citrus and some bitterness from the grapefruit. Drinking cocoa, a hint of oak, a little liquorice and a hint of rosemary make the Glenglassaugh look nice and complex even in the taste. Overall, the taste is a fresh, fruity balance to the nose, which I feel is significantly sweeter than the taste. The malt offers no criticism. In the sense of "whining at the highest level" I could note that the taste is towards the finish. gets a little too watery.
I find the finish to be medium long. A little pepper, minimal bitterness as well as pepper and a hint of burnt breakfast toast comes to my mind. the finish is even more fruity than the taste. Here, too, very pleasant and a pleasure through and through.
Yes, what can I say ... I got the sample from @StyrianSpirit. He is known as a pastry junkie across borders and that's probably why he likes this Glenglassaugh so much. In the glass it smells like in a confectioner's room.
You don't want to stop smelling and enjoying yourself. With a large bottle you will have a lot of fun for a long time!
92/100 (at least!)
