Proof66 Notes

Glenglassaugh Evolution Single Malt Scotch is aged, as the label suggests, not in ex-bourbon barrels (common in the scotch world) but selected Tennessee whisky barrels. In point of fact, this is similar to first-fill ex-bourbon barrels since the new-charred oak character should be very similar. The whisky is bottled at a very stiff and natural 100 proof (compare with most single malts at 86). They suggest looking for flavor note of pepper, salted caramel, and banana among others.

Glenglessaugh was founded in 1875 by James Moir and later sold off in 1892 by his surviving nephews. It continued operating until 1907. It was briefly revived in 1959 until closing again in 1986. Glenglessaugh was re-purchased by investors who formed the Glenglassaugh Distillery Company in 2008 and began releasing new stocks of spirits. They offer a line of whiskies stored from previous stocks and a new line of spirit drinks. The brand was subsequently sold to the BenRiach Distilling Company in 2013.
