Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh 1978

- 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.
Complex mixed berry fruits and a surprisingly strong alcoholic note.
I am struggeling and fighting for the right words here. There is not much going on really apart from a little spiciness.
Medium length, developing oak bitterness after a moment.
- 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)
