Nosing: Malz Vanille
Mostly malt and vanilla. Some citrus peel. Fairly typical of young bourbon aged whisky.

Taste: Honig Zitronenschale Gewürze Eiche
Good intense arrival. Sweet, but not overly so. Honey sweetness, some lemon oil coming forward. Wood notes show up halfway and build over time. Some spiciness, but there's mainly an underlying bitter sappy note.

Finish: Vanille Eiche
Medium length, buttery and vanilla, still that sappy note on the back of the tongue and roof of the mouth from the oak.

Comment:
I was wondering how Glenglassaugh had changed since the Revival release. It seems like this isn't so much of an evolution, more of a rehash. It's pleasant enough until you get to the finish, at which point it's less pleasant. The high strength does enough to keep it interesting but not enough to make it engaging.
