This is the new Glenglassaugh, with which I mean to say that it was produced under the stewardship of Stuart Nickerson and his new team. After the Glenglassaugh Revival, the first release, comes this Evolution. This whisky matured on first fill bourbon casks from Tennessee, the George Dickel distillery.
The nose is not grainy or spirity as I would have expected from a rather young animal. A bit buttery with loads of vanilla. Apples and pears are kept firmly under the thumb by toffee and butterscotch. Nice touch of coconuts. Hints of hay.
Sturdy body, I must say. Honeysweet from the butterscotch and vanilla with lovely spices. Some woodspice and aniseed. Golden Delicious apples and sweet pears. Coconut again. A nice continuation of the nose. Does not need water.
On the fairly long finish, it is the coconut that lingers.
Wow, to be honest I had not expected this new Glenglassaugh to be so good. This is truly enjoyable. Just under 70 EUR. Thanks, Johan, for this nice birthday gift.
