Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh 2011 UD

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.25 points

  1. mothers_finest scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Not a bad whisky! You can see what is possible at a young age, if you have a good cask (or octave). But it remains the fact that even a good barrel does not make a whisky mature faster; but just better...
    Time is something precious that can not be replaced, not by money, not by knowledge and even not by a good cask. You can try to get the maximum in a short time, but the short time remains! This adjusting screw remains unvariable.

    So; interesting whisky, but not much more than that.

    with water: it gets really good, hazelnuts, nougat, vanilla

    Conclusion: delicious, especially with water, which is really good, one of the best Glassa octaves, which I had the time to try
    • Nose
      Smoke, PX sherry, plum, dark sweetness, chocolate, some sulfur, vanilla, oak, some salt, smoked fish, great, even if the youth shines through again and again
    • Taste
      Vanilla, smoke, quite strong alcohol, dark sweetness, subtle oak
    • Finish
      long, vanilla, raisins, ruachig, pencil abrasion
