Glenglassaugh Revival

Glenglassaugh Distillery is located in the region Highland in Scotland.

Glenglassaugh Revival is the first release after the distillery started up the production again. Here is what they say about it:

The Revival is the first expression released from Glenglassaugh distillery after being mothballed for more than 20 years. The Glenglassaugh Revival has been matured in a balanced mix of ex-red wine and fresh bourbon casks, vatted and re-racked for double maturation in rich sherry casks. Bottled at 46%, non chill filtered and of natural colour, Revival is a stunning Highland single malt with a coastal charm.

It is bottled at 46 ABV. It is available in Norway at NOK 679,90.

Light maltiness on the nose. A hint of banana. Yeast. Overripe pineapple and mango. Hay and grass give the smell of agriculture. A bit sharp on the palate. Something sweet, maybe a combination of malt and banana. Very salty. The finish is spicy and nutty. It is dry before it leaves the palate with an oily layer and a peppery tingling.

My score: nose 18 / taste 18 / finish 19 / balance 20 = 75

After writing my tasting notes and giving my score, I realized I have shared my tasting notes on this one before! You can read my review here. I gave it 82 back in 2017, but look what I wrote:

When I first tasted this one, back in 2013, I found it to be amazing! Think I scored it above 90 points. There might some differences between the batches, but I do think todays tasting notes are more representative.

I guess the score might indicate my taste has changed in addition to changes in batches.

Thanks, Marius!
