Glenglassaugh, 40 year old, 44.6%

Price: $2525.00 Issue: Spring 2011 Reviewer: John Hansell

An excellent example of an ultra-mature, sherried whisky done the right way. Much darker and more decadent than the other two releases here. Silky texture. Rummy, jammy fruit, toasted walnut, leather, spice (cinnamon, clove), tobacco, and dark chocolate, with a foundation of juicy oak. Tasting this whisky, you know it's old, but you also know it's very good.
