" Destilled at Glenglassaugh Distillery in 1973 40 years
The Malt Whisky Company Stuart Nickerson is back! Well, actually he was never really gone ... After leaving Glenglassaugh in June 2013, we have always kept in touch. So we kept up to date with the various activities of this veteran of the whisky industry. The whisky stillness in the Shetlands is taking shape, in Ireland he is actively involved in a great project, etc. But he has not forgotten his own small company "The Malt Whisky Company". After much planning and the search for the best of the best in every way, Stuart now presents us the first barrel that is bottled under "his" label. Only really exceptional whiskys should be allowed to carry this label - and Stuart's signature! Who knows with how much passion and passion Stuart brought Glenglassaugh back to life from 2008-2013, and what extraordinary whiskys came from Portsoy in his aegis ... this is already on this Glenglassaugh of 1973. Tasting Notes: This refill sherry butt, distilled on December 7, 1973, shines in the glass like dark amber. On the nose a potpourri of fruits: plum, cassis, blackberry cherry, but also mango and banana. In addition fresh caramel, and pickled ginger. Alcohol does not seem to exist ... Very gently in the background a little oak. On the palate freshly caramelized, very minimal burnt cane sugar, cherry and pineapple. Delicious sherry notes, with a hint of oak again, but without appearing bitter. Amazing how substantial can be 41.5 vol.%. The finish is endlessly long, sweet and soft, again cane sugar and fruit and a touch of oakiness. The features of this whisky need not hide. Stuart attaches great importance to the fact that the packaging is entirely made in Scottish workmanship, here is not shone with Asian cheap wood and lacquer A massive oak wooden box with wonderfully polished and lacquered grains shows from the outside only the smaller label and the seal of the Malt Whisky Company , If you open the magnetic lock, the bottle presents itself embedded in red velvet cloth. Of course, this 40-year-old Glenglassaugh is not cold-filtered and undyed. Edition of 298 bottles, hand numbered in wooden case of which 96 for Germany,
