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.

Very fragrant with honey and plums, mineral water, and dry white wine characteristics. A touch of smoke, mild pepper, tart apple fruitiness, and salted pretzel palate, and the heat from the proof comes on stronger than you'd expect from the nose. Long finish, stewed vegetables and gentle wisps of smoke and pepper linger.

This is not an easily classified whisky. The closest might be Johnnie Walker Green, it pulls in a lot of directions but is still quite balanced. Very intriguing, one I think will need more tastings to appreciate.
