Glenglassaugh

Glenglassaugh 1976, Dormant Distillery Co.
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.40%
7 A distinctive malt, but now slightly past its best.

Glenglassaugh 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Has a certain louche charm to it.

Glenglassaugh 35 Years Old, 1976 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.30%
8 A rich and mysterious dram.

Glenglassaugh Evolution
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20%
7 A straightforward clean young whisky. Water to tame the alcohol bite.

Glenglassaugh Manager's Legacy Release No. 4 Walter Grant
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.40%
8 An old sherry character. Wood has taken the lead but in a rich and deep expression. Don't miss nosing the empty glass.

Glenglassaugh Revival
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Though clearly still coming together, this is a marker of real quality.

Glenglassaugh The Chosen Few No.1 Ronnie Routledge 35 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.60%

Glenglassaugh Torfa
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%

Berry's Own Selection Glenglassaugh
- Scotland - 46.00%
7 A lovely dram..hope its new owners find some like this lurking in the warehouses.

Cadenhead's Glenglassaugh 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.20%
7 Glenglassaugh can be malty, and this one is. It stands up very well for it's age. In this bottling, with an apricot colour that suggests sherry, very much a dessert whisky.

Cadenhead's Glenglassaugh 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.10%
7 This has dried out to a point where it is aggressive and unbalanced.

Dewar Rattray Glenglassaugh 1976 29 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.00%
7 Of interest, but not great.

Dewar Rattray Glenglassaugh 21 Years Old 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.40%
6 “Sweet and sulphury”now, there's a catchy brand name.

Master of Malt Glenglassaugh 25 Years Old 1984
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.70%
7 Another oak and oak only whisky. I must have an oak-(over)sensitive palate!

Old Malt Cask Glenglassaugh 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.60%
7 Another whose palate runs counter to its nose.
