Glenglassaugh Evolution Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$120.00 Bottle
  • ABV 50%

Glenglassaugh has been described as a 'coastal' distillery, being located on the north coast of Speyside near Glen Deveron and Banff. Founded in 1875, between 1960 and 1986 it produced malt whiskies for the blending market, in particular the Cutty Sark and Famous Grouse blends. However, it suffered from the recession riddled decline that plagued the Scotch whisky industry in the early 1980's and was mothballed in 1986. It restarted production in November 2008 after being acquired by independent investors, the Edrington Group, following a complete refurbishment by the new owners.

Tasting note: [tasted from a 20 ml sample]. Brilliant pale straw gold. A brief shellac and glue blemish turns to peppermint and honeycomb - a combination that's a sheer delight. Gains more vanilla and toffee with aeration. The palate delivers semi sweet, caramelised fruit flavours before crescendoing with a tingly, warm and spicy flourish that hollows out the profile towards the finish, ending dry, numbing but long. Sound balance at this high ABV. Subtle spicy, caramelised fruit fade.57.2% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Following on from Revival, Glenglassaugh has released 6,000 bottles of Evolution, an expression also made after the distillery’s reopening in 2008. It has been matured in first-fill George Dickel barrels and bottled at cask strength. Peaches and gingerbread on the nose, with brittle toffee, icing sugar, and vanilla. Luscious soft fruits dipped in caramel figure on the palate, with coconut and background stem ginger. The finish is medium in length, with spicy toffee. 86 points
