Ouch, du soufre. Ça faisait longtemps, je me demandais si j'y étais toujours sensible. La réponse est oui. Cela mis à part, le nez est pas mal. Sur le zeste d'orange, la noix, un peu de résine . Un léger picotement alcooleux , aussi. Mais bon, c'est un petit jeune....
On retrouve malheureusement le soufre . Le développement est assez agréable et de longueur moyenne. Un peu de cuir, une petite touche de tourbe/fumée, mais pas très définie . La confusion entre tourbe et sherry sème le doute.
I've had better and I've had (much) worse, but considering its very young
age, I think this is a promising whisky. Sweet (caramel/vanilla), fruity (orange), a bit spicy. Not bad at all. Very curious what this will do from say 7yo.
I've never come across a flavour profile quite like this, it has a totally unique character. It's quite sweet, I get a lot of caramel/toffee and bananas along with tea, dried fruits, plums, pears, there's a bit of a green/leafy note and a faint saltiness. It also has a note reminiscent of bitter (as in beer). Not surprisingly it does come across as a bit young (not spirity though) but if the folks at Glenglassaugh can produce a whisky this interesting in under 4 years I'm very much looking forward to 2018 when they release their 10 year old.
The Revival was too young and unfinished to leave a great impression on me at this age (3 years). Nonetheless, the quality seems to be there and I am looking forward to a 10 Y.O. expression or similar. Promising indeed.
