Glenglassaugh Revival
content description

The Glenglassaugh Revival is the first whisky to be made at the distillery since it reopened in 2008. This is a no age statement single malt matured in a mixture of first-fill and refill red wine and bourbon casks, then finished for a period of 6 months in first-fill ex-Oloroso Sherry casks. This expression is non-chill filtered, bottled at 46% ABV and contains no artificial colouring. The average price of this bottle is around $45.

On the nose: red wine notes, sulphur notes, caramel, toffee, nuttiness, honey, dark chocolate and dried fruits.

On the palate: oily and sweet with fruit cake notes (raisins, orange peel, walnuts, sugar, cinnamon), oak spices and dark chocolate.

Finish: medium length and dry with caramel and cinnamon notes lingering on.

Overall: a pleasant whisky with a flavour profile that's a little different to most single malts. Definitely worth a try if you like sweet whiskies.
