Glenglassaugh 1972 44 Year Old Single Malt Whisky Cask 1721 700mL

Nosethe beautiful abundance of dark fruits, blackberry jam, and a handful of brambles. Prune juice with stewed fruits and some helpings of marzipan.
With time a big aroma of prunes begins taking over.
TasteVery full and fruity, gentle cinnamon spice livening up the palate, a gentle tingle. Delicate woody notes, and a slight orange bitterness but it doesn't manage to take away from the fruitiness and manuka honey.
FinishSlightly drying, some dried prunes, gentle oak, and soft spice.
