    Flavor is fresh with sweet flower notes and oak. Taste is also sweet, vanilla, oaky. Finish is pleasant with sweet caramel notes.

  5. Fortuna1895 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Occasionally a bit young (which he is), but probably because of that ... Water makes it much more attractive, I think. Leaves a small saltiness on the lips, which I knew so far only from "independent" Glen Scotias. With a small dash of water THE whisky after a restful, not too hot, day at the beach.
    • Nose
      The 50% vol. due slightly stinging nose, but has much more to offer than just alcohol. Crunchy malt, a light orange clay, creamy fruit puree with a drop of cream. A touch of sea air blows over spicy oak wood. Water reveals mild notes of moist malt, a saccharine spiciness and a few splashes of lemon / lime juice. A touch of laundry room.
    • Taste
      Malt, a small plate of milk chocolate & oak. A swab of saltiness mixes with lemon effervescent powder. Sweet and salty at the same time with water. Caramel and lemon juice; everywhere tiny tiny vanilla swabs.
    • Finish
      A true dry finish with crisp malt. The salt is now clearer. Below are a few chilli flakes in a bed of unsweetened yellow fruit pulp. Water makes the finish dry. Spicy saltiness mixes with malt, small (but distinct) oak notes & a few drops of caramel syrup.

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Nose:-
    Wonderful sweetened chrysanthemum tea, light acidic pineapple note. Very
    pleasant despite young age. Slightly thin but very approachable.
      Palate:- Rich barley and
    vanilla as backbone, crisp with gentle spiced salts. Good mouthfeel. Friendly
    dram for anytime and occasion.
      Finish:- Short-medium finish.
    Candy sweet with traces of warm ginger at the back of palate.

  8. karloff scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    This is my first bottle and taste of Glenglassaugh , I have avoided this distillery because  of the average reviews and the high price. This was a gift so I've no complaints. Is it worth  £57? No, more like  £30.

  9. karloff scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    It's young and it's a NAS but it's quite a pleasant dram and I think the 50% alc/vol really helps it. 
    • Nose
      A well buttered toasted crumpet , Jacobs cream cracker, some bread dough, mint imperial and cream soda,vanilla cake, pear drops and ripe melon .
    • Taste
      The first thing that hits you is how sharp it is, but it's nothing I can't handle and it doesn't spoil the overall experience . Lots of vanilla , banana and custard , dolly mixtures , nougat, green apples and tinned fruit . 
    • Finish
      A short to medium finish with marshmallows and Palmer violets sweets.
