Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh 2009

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.50 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nose: toffee, coffee, cappuccino, caramel, a little bit of oak, which gets stronger with time, some cocoa. Then a little alcohol & some dried fruit. More a candy than a drink.
    Mouth: strong, intense and alcoholic, the nose did not point to it, slightly sour, dried fruit, intense sherry. With water a bit rounder, more oak-accented.
    Finish: menthol, oak, dried fruits, bitter-sweet sherry finish.

    Conclusion: nice part! Comes over much older than he is. Probably a very active barrel.

  2. Carsten scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    It is the Cask 2345, from which I was able to bottle on 12.08.2014 (one of the last?).
    • Nose
      Very fruity nose, I could identify strawberry and orange. Sweet notes of milk chocolate and caramel as well as wine notes.
    • Taste
      At first sharp, the alcohol is very clear. Sweet notes dominate, with marzipan, herbs. A touch of salt. Wood notes are hardly recognizable.
    • Finish
      Very round and mild, again milk chocolate and caramel. Again some salt. Again, no pronounced wood notes. Conclusion: A very nice fresh and fruity Sherry Cask Whisky. 88 points
