Customer Rating
The Glenglassaugh Distillery was mothballed from 1986 until 2008 and this the first whisky to be made from spirit distilled at the distillery since it reopened. It was matured in a mixture of first and refill bourbon casks before a final 6 months finishing in first fill oloroso sherry butts.

    Absolutly loved this whisky beautifully presented bottle. Lovely color. A very nice scent and so sweet and easy to drink. I am planning to have a bottle of this around always.

    This is a beautiful rich mouth filling whisky, I’m very glad I found it & will buy it again & will try more expressions from this distillery. Quite delicious.

    Based on the reviews here, I really wanted to love this, but from the first sip I knew I’d made a massive mistake. 46% is way too strong, it kills all the flavour, but worse is that horrible, synthetic, cloying creamy over taste that you get with the awful macallan gold. I left the bottle to breathe overnight hoping this would improve the taste but no. Avoid at all costs, if sherried malts are your thing (and they are mine) stick with glenfarclas, Glendronach or Blair athol, much nicer.

    Really good. Highly recommended! I'm not a whisky buff, so i don't have the whisky vocabulary, but it's full body, thick in the mouth and overall delicious.

    I felt in love in this characterful, young whisky. Little to add to the producer's note, except that I like the winey touch very much. Enjoy it.
