    This Glenglassaugh is a young whisky, obviously, but the octave cask did add an interesting aspect to this expression. The most joy is to be experienced when nosing this, especially after adding a little water, because it is quite sharp. I notice the dominant peaches right away, followed by the influences of the wood. Pencil shavings, nothing too bad, but maybe a tad one-dimensional. Given time this will get more complex. Wonderful development in such a young whisky.

    The taste is nicely balanced between light wood, a little smokiness and bitter fruit, leaning towards blood oranges. It definitely needs water but then it tastes mature, rounded, and impressively balanced. 

    The finish is long lasting on bitter chocolate notes. I talked about the one-dimensional aspect on the nose. The whisky IS straightforward, but it is not boring in any way. You can toy with this quite a while, adding water, judging how much it needs exactly. Above all, it is a great summer dram, to be enjoyed when the sun has set and the garden starts to darken. Another very interesting selection by this band of bottlers. Well done!
