Price: $78.00 Issue: Spring 2013 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Following on from Revival, Glenglassaugh has released 6,000 bottles of Evolution, an expression also made after the distillery's reopening in 2008. It has been matured in first-fill George Dickel barrels and bottled at cask strength. Peaches and gingerbread on the nose, with brittle toffee, icing sugar, and vanilla. Luscious soft fruits dipped in caramel figure on the palate, with coconut and background stem ginger. The finish is medium in length, with spicy toffee. £50
