Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh Evolution
20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.29 points
- Tasted at Whisky in Leiden 2018
- Flavor is fresh with sweet flower notes and oak. Taste is also sweet, vanilla, oaky. Finish is pleasant with sweet caramel notes.
- Occasionally a bit young (which he is), but probably because of that ... Water makes it much more attractive, I think. Leaves a small saltiness on the lips, which I knew so far only from "independent" Glen Scotias. With a small dash of water THE whisky after a restful, not too hot, day at the beach.
The 50% vol. due slightly stinging nose, but has much more to offer than just alcohol. Crunchy malt, a light orange clay, creamy fruit puree with a drop of cream. A touch of sea air blows over spicy oak wood. Water reveals mild notes of moist malt, a saccharine spiciness and a few splashes of lemon / lime juice. A touch of laundry room.
Malt, a small plate of milk chocolate & oak. A swab of saltiness mixes with lemon effervescent powder. Sweet and salty at the same time with water. Caramel and lemon juice; everywhere tiny tiny vanilla swabs.
A true dry finish with crisp malt. The salt is now clearer. Below are a few chilli flakes in a bed of unsweetened yellow fruit pulp. Water makes the finish dry. Spicy saltiness mixes with malt, small (but distinct) oak notes & a few drops of caramel syrup.
Wonderful sweetened chrysanthemum tea, light acidic pineapple note. Very
pleasant despite young age. Slightly thin but very approachable.
Palate:- Rich barley and
vanilla as backbone, crisp with gentle spiced salts. Good mouthfeel. Friendly
dram for anytime and occasion.
Finish:- Short-medium finish.
Candy sweet with traces of warm ginger at the back of palate.

- This is my first bottle and taste of Glenglassaugh , I have avoided this distillery because of the average reviews and the high price. This was a gift so I've no complaints. Is it worth £57? No, more like £30.
- It's young and it's a NAS but it's quite a pleasant dram and I think the 50% alc/vol really helps it.
A well buttered toasted crumpet , Jacobs cream cracker, some bread dough, mint imperial and cream soda,vanilla cake, pear drops and ripe melon .
The first thing that hits you is how sharp it is, but it's nothing I can't handle and it doesn't spoil the overall experience . Lots of vanilla , banana and custard , dolly mixtures , nougat, green apples and tinned fruit .
A short to medium finish with marshmallows and Palmer violets sweets.
