Glen Scotia 'Double Cask' 46%
Country: Scotch Whisky
Region: Campbeltown Whisky
Situated at the foot of the Kintyre peninsula in the historic whisky producing region of Campbeltown, Glen Scotia has had a bit of a make-over of late with the release of three impressive new expressions. The 'Double Cask' is Finished in a selection of first fill bourbon and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. The nose is an intriguing combination of rich fudge, fresh orchard fruit and a sort of dusty earthy note that is quite typical of the distillery. Oily on the palate with rich vanilla and more fudge, it has a slight briny character with a touch of warming spiced fruit developing.
Nose: Vibrant fruit emerges first (peach flesh and green apple peels), followed by chewy vanilla fudge, a hint of salinity, then an array of oak-y spices including some char.
Palate: Opens with more fudge with a little dusting of powdered sugar. Powerful, oily and a touch herbaceous with some German brandy character.
Finish: Sherried notes come through more on the finish.
