A story of rebirth and renewal.

Glenglassaugh Distillery was built in 1875 on Sandend Bay, about 60 miles east of Inverness. For more than a century this rustic distillery produced a single malt that was 100% absorbed into blends, including Cutty Sark, The Famous Grouse, and Laing’s. But by 1986 larger and more modern facilities outstripped it and the owners mothballed the whole place. But in 2008 the Scaent Group bought the site, released older casks in storage to great reviews, and then refurbished everything to return to a broad range of single malt production. Brown-Forman owns them today.

Glenglassaugh Revival is the first release of new single malt spirit since the stills were turned back on — and a good one it is. Notably, it’s aged in a mix of ex-Wine and ex-Bourbon casks. Those casks are vatted and then re-casked in Sherry butts. This combination yields a warm copper-gold appearance. It also makes the flavor stand out with plum & berry notes from the Wine casks and rich nuts, toffee, and chocolate notes from the Sherry casks. Any way you slice it, Glenglassaugh Revival is a really solid Highland single malt …reborn.

Smartass Corner:
In 2010, noted Whisky writer Ian Buxton wrote a book about the revitalization of Glenglassaugh Distillery titled, “Glenglassaugh: A Distillery Reborn.”

Awesome!!
 
Gerry
Gerry,
Good flavor but a little young, would have been much better with 5 more years aging
 
Greg
Greg,
An interesting dram. Flavor spiral seems on target as the burnt caramel and smoke open the palate and move through the flavors with intensifying sweetness and fruit with an enjoyable sherry finish. Price point seems fair and the no age rating is not an impediment to some fine drinks. The milk chocolate was a bit elusive. A splash of water opens additional middle flavors especially of vanilla and honey.

Warm, toffee notes, a little harsh on the finish

Sweet burnt caramel, you can taste the barrels, brown sugar. Lovely mouth feel with a tingling and happy finish. Shame it is not available any more.
