  1. ctu scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Complex whisky, with a lovely balance I think.
    • Nose
      Very elegant. Fruits, vanilla, oak, lavender
    • Taste
      Bitter, spicy, fruity, creamy: apple, pear, oak and pepper
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, dry, bitter

    The nose is the best part on this, promises a lot but does not quite deliver.

    Its ok but the bitterness spoils it from me and stops it getting a good score.
    • Nose
      Nice nose, powerful and fruity, mainly white fruits, slight medicinal note, I think this will be a little dry
    • Taste
      Bitter , spicy and dry as expected, the fruit that was on the nose is in the background. After a few sips the sweetness does grow on pear and apple and there is is also some dry meat taste
    • Finish
      Long, powerful and the bitterness remains

  4. Sjaunja scored this whisky 83 points Specialist

    A very nice Glenglassaugh. No off notes.  (Un)fortunatey I (only) have a sample.

    Would like to have a whole bottle.

    I compared three Glenglassaugh at one evening:

    Wilson Morgan has a bitterness in the final, so this is why this one
    takes the third place. The better sherried whisky in the DR one, really
    nice no off notes, enjoyable.
    A bit out the range, because bourbon matured, is the Dorment.
    is the one with the most Glenglassaugh character (well it is a bit
    obvoius, because there is no sherry which overlays the fine and fruity
    Glenglassaugh style ;-) )

  5. Willie JJ scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Truly wonderful whisky. Great complexity and balance. I should have bought more of this stuff.
    • Nose
      Strange faint iodine and lavender note as if there were a drop or two of
      Bowmore in the dram. Plenty of vanilla and icing sugar along with
      wood, pepper and mixed berries. Brilliant!
    • Taste
      Spicy sherbet, pepper and citrus. Dark brown sugar mixed with a pinch of salt. Gentle wood spices.
    • Finish
      Spicy and dry. Not terribly long.
