  1. WHISKYEUROPA2009 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Nose A potpourri of fruits with plum, cassis, blackberry, cherry, but also mango and banana. In addition fresh caramel and pickled ginger. Very gently in the background a little oak. Flavor Freshly caramelized, minimally burnt cane sugar, cherry and pineapple. Delicious sherry notes, plus a touch of oak again, but without being bitter. Amazingly rich. The finish is endlessly long, sweet and smooth, again cane sugar and fruit and a hint of oaky spice.

    Glenglassaugh 1973-2015 41yo. The Malt Whisky Company Refill Hogshead and finishd at Oloroso Sherry Hogshead Natural Cask Strength 43.9% Vol.
    Color: rich straw
    Nose: My dear swan, but there comes a lot at once. First fresh notes of pear and apple. The oak is timid, very pleasant. Now comes a flash of raisins. Nutmeg and grassy notes. The more time in the glass of the drops the more pronounced the tannins get through. Great spice with a nice helping of vanilla. At the back there is some coffee with dark chocolate. The pear from the beginning hovers over everything. Taste: The whisky flows warming into every corner of my mouth. Wow! Dark chocolate, pear and coffee. Reverberation: long and soothing. No trace of bitterness. No sign of too much wood. Sweetness stays with dark chocolate and a hint of peach. Conclusion. Wow what an incredible board. Rarely have I been able to try in my life so old as sensationally good whisky. In terms of price, this drop is between 550E-650E 92/100 points
