Glenglassaugh Revival Bottling Note

This is the first chance to try whisky produced by the recently re-opened Glenglassaugh Distillery.

It was closed in 1986 but resumed production in 2008. This revival bottling is the first whisky to be made at the distillery since it reopened. Matured in a mixture of first and refill bourbon casks, this was finished for 6 months in first-fill oloroso sherry butts.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sweet caramel and toffee with notes of nutty Sherry, milk chocolate and honey. Ripe plums, red berries and oranges. Caramelised sugar and earthy, charred oak.

Palate: Sweet, rounded and creamy. Oranges, plums, cherry and walnuts, chocolate, honey-mead, Sherry and soft, spiced oak.

Finish: Medium with warming mulled-wine spices, Sherry and caramel.

Glenglassaugh Revival Reviews

a lovely and different whisky

on opening this you get a mass of toffee. this remains, along with a little sherry and nuttiness too. manuka honey, sherried spice and caramel in mouth, plus orange peel. a medium finish is very smooth.
quite a lovely and different whisky from one of the most interesting distilleries to open of late.
ive a few of their offerings.

Not worth the money

What a let down. Harsh, young spirit tarted up by wine casks and a sherry finish. Aggressively “matured” whisky that basically doesn’t really want to be your friend. 4/10.

Sweet sweet nectar

This is so good, one of my favourite drams and also one of the best value.

Beautiful dram

Delicious whisky really get the plum and cherry flavours ocmign through with a soft, smooth texture. A beautiful dram.

Worth every penny and a little more at that price!

Delicious, silky/oily texture in the mouth. Warm cherry influences. Definitely one for the cabinet.

Great nose, harsh start but a great finish!

A little harsh on the palate at first taste. This is easily toned down with a single ice cube or splash of water. Great flavours come through in the middle and finish. Really can taste the caramel and Sherry. Enjoying more as the bottle empties.

Ok but... weirdly sour?

Maybe just my bottle, but it smells/tastes mildly of vinegar.

Liquid Marmalade

It's exactly what it says on the tin....and more

lacking complexity, but right for it's price

Creamy mouthfeel, sweet and zesty taste, bourbon in the aftertaste. The flavours don't really seem to get together, the whisky is clearly a bit too young, but for it's price range it's still a good whisky. The only whiskies in it's price range that, imo surpass this one, would be Glendronach 12, - Hielan and Benriach Heart of Speyside. Two brands that just happen to also be part of the Brown-Forman group.

Easy to drink and very affordable..

Lovely on the palate.

Lovely, pleasing and full of flavors. Definitely a nice dram to have on hand.

a bit crude, reminds me of American whiskies

use of first full casks makes it flavoursome and full on but crude. The bourbon and sherry flavours are direct and unmediated. At this price point not awful but there are a lot of nicer whiskies out there for a similar price.

i believe it tastes as if it comes from Glenfarclas

I've been drinking Bourbon for years and live close to a Long Island Winery there's always wine in my house and lots of it a Friend turned me onto a Bottle of Glenlivet 12, then 15 then 18 then 21 I have tried a lot of different distillery's and tastes from sweet to peaty,, and well this takes right to thoughts of Dessert Wine, the nose is amazing brings in that caramel toffee immediately and keeps it there throughout my mouth full I'm not an expert but I enjoy good spirits that Are flavorful from Lagavulin with a cigar to Glenmorangie Quinta ruban port , I like Glenfarclas 25, and Glendronach 12/18/21 are phenomenal ,, this is the company I place this Glenglassaugh Revival in

22nd March 2017

Pretty darned good for young stuff!

Opened the bottle up and tried it for the first time last night. Considering how young this it is really incredible. Creamy with richness, raisin and nut. Very smooth and no bite.

Wow now this is one of the better bottles I have bought as of late this stuff is fantastic. First off natural color, non chill filtered and bottled at 46% thank you Glenglassaugh I know this will be good before I even take a sip. Nose is burnt sugar with sherry and a hint of coastal breeze but the flavor is very rich indeed so much raisin/caramel with deep charred oak and bitter dark chocolate and a hint of cinnamon spice this is gorgeous stuff so much flavor with a nice long finish as well there must be some fairly old whisky in this. Confused as to whether or not it's a Speyside or a Highland but regardless this is really a great find definitely recommend this one. Cheers! The Sugarbear

Our second-closest distillery

A great favourite. Possibly not the most sophisticated whisky, but truly enjoyable.

23rd February 2016


Lovely whisky and very unique but a little bit soapy on the finish. Still well worth the money. The soapiness doesn't tarnish the experience.

27th January 2016

Really wonderful

It's great to try it. Better than many well known brands. Please continue to produce it, don't close again!

15th August 2015

So creeeeeeeeeamy....

Just one word: wonderful.
So creamy and rounded.
One of the best whisky in the world.

16th July 2015

Ready Steady Go!

If this is the revival, long may it continue! The question arises, with a whisky like this why did they close in the first place? I've added it to my favorites list already. Try it!
