 Back to life, back to reality.   
The Glenglassaugh distillery was founded by Col. James Moir in 1875, at the east end of the beautiful Sandend Bay, in the Speyside region of Scotland. In 1892 Glenglassaugh was purchased by Highland Distillers and continued production until 1986, when it was mothballed. In 2008 it was bought by the BenRiach distillery with the intention of bringing this brand back to life, and rightfully so. 
 
Glenglassaugh Evolution is a limited edition, which joins the Revival bottling. Aged in ex-Tennessee Whiskey casks that were used to age George Dickel, it was bottled at cask strength. Evolution is part of Glenglassaugh's series of single malts that celebrate the variety of casks in which Scotch is aged. It’s young, vibrant, full of energy, and punchy, yet it is showing significant talent.

Character Dogson
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Although Glennglassaugh generally releases unpeated Whiskies, in 2009 they started experimenting with mildly peated ones.
