  2. DunklerRabe scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    That is rather disappointing. At around this sort of age and price range you can get better stuff from Glenglassaugh. This one is probably more of a collectible.
    • Nose
      Complex mixed berry fruits and a surprisingly strong alcoholic note.
    • Taste
      I am struggeling and fighting for the right words here. There is not much going on really apart from a little spiciness.
    • Finish
      Medium length, developing oak bitterness after a moment.

  3. Drochaid scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Nose: creamy raspberry jam and a warm spiciness of white pepper make for a fascinatingly delicate coastal note. Palate: Red fruit jelly spiced with black peppercorns and cloves, sour cherries and distant hints of ground almonds on the finish (Glenglassaugh)
