Glenglassaugh Evolution is a cask strength, first fill bourbon cask matured dram. 2nd release (following Revival) by the recently re-opened Glenglassaugh Distillery.

We started our Speyside blind tasting with Evolution and I'm sure that it might have had a better score if it hadn't been the starter.

I got more out of it by adding water (score went up from 76 to 79). I was stunned to hear it's age (about 3-4 years). That's why Glenglassaugh Evolution is truly the Underdog story.

Nose: Light and fruity green. Crispy berries take over after a while. Added water brings a fresh feel of sea air.

Taste: Sweet and fruity but delicately crispy as well. Spicy. Added water makes it softer and brings out the deep butterscotch from underground. Brings some junipery berries too.

Finish: Fast, sharp, woody and nutty.

Balance: Full bodied and enjoyable dram with lots of positive surprises. Young age does show but didn't expect it to be this young...
