Product Description

Silver Medal winner at the San Francisco World Spirits competition 2019

Glenglassaugh fell silent in 1986 and only re-opened in 2008 with this Revival bottle relased in 2012 which has been finished for 6 months in Oloroso Sherry casks after initial ageing in Ex-Bourbon casks and some red wine casks used as well to impart flavour and colour from a trio of wood finishes.

Nose: Red plums, toffee, spiced honey, buiscuity malt, red berries, praline, grapey and a dusting of cocoa powder.

Palate: Waxy orange, mocha, cocoa dusted red berries, malty and honey mouthfeel, yellow plums, walnut whips, blackcurrant leaf.

Finish: Red berries, ginger biscuits, aromatic oak and wine tannins, coffee and walnut.

A well balanced young malt that is non chill filtered and natural colour and you get all three wood casks working in unison for a greater level of complexity and depth you would expect from an older malt.
