Deep copper
Nose

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....

Taste

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.

Finish

Amertume, épices , cuir.

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.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Creamy caramel, lime, red berries, vanilla and a slight coastal peatiness. Pretty good nose for such a young whisky, especially the sherry influence.

Taste

Caramel, lime, red berries, brambles, orange and a little spice.

Finish

Red berries, caramel, raisins and soy sauce.

Comments

For its age, this is quite good already.

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.

The Glenglassaugh Distillery was mothballed from 1986 until 2008 and this the first whisky to be made from spirit distilled at the distillery since it reopened. It was matured in a mixture of first and refill bourbon casks before a final 6 months finishing in first fill oloroso sherry butts.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Du pneu brulé, du caoutchouc au début.
Al'aération, cela laisse place à quelques arômes flous de sherry.
Pas désagréable mais assez peu intéressant.

Quelques fruits en fond.

Taste

Sucrée, aqueuse.

Finish

Moyenne

Comments

Buvable. Ne présente que peu d'intérêt.
