Sold for HK$ 52,080 (US$ 6,717) inc. premium
Glenglassaugh-1966-45 year old
Bottled 2011 at Glenglassaugh Distillery, Banffshire.
Bottle number 172 of 202. Natural cask strength. In wooden presentation case accompanied by a crystal stopper, two crystal tumblers and a certificate signed by its master distiller Stuart Nickerson. Engraved labelling. "...Develops on marzipan, a little leather, orange zests, old cognac, then whiffs of old wardrobe, unlit cigar, ham, maybe a little cardboard, old wine cellar, soot, aluminium... this palate is lovely. Sure it's not quite as complex as the nose – as almost always with these very old whiskies - but the 'feeling' is excellent, rich yet very elegant, beautifully spicy, smoky and earthy, with also these metallic touches once again, mushrooms (morels, yeah, yeah) and then more tropical notes. Mango chutney, bananas flambéed (with rum, obviously), tinned pineapples... There's also a little beeswax, then more black pepper and chilli..." (5 stars-whiskyfun)
700ml. Single Malt., 49.2% volume.
