    • Taste
      86 86
      Vanilla, spices, very light smoke, fruity, oak
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium length with cocoa

      Not my case, especially the aroma is disappointingly weak.

  2. Ivynor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    An honest product although a little expensive. Renewal at Glen Scotia
    • Nose
      83 83
      Nose enough sherry, on plum, stewed pear, traces of mocha. the whole is a little alcoholic (youth)
    • Taste
      81 81
      Mouth that is young (3 years?) And quite woody and dry, even bitter. We find dry sherry, a little fruit (apple), cinnamon. Lack of flexibility and roundness.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Long, marked by dry sherry, pepper, cooked fruits (apricot, quetsche) and nuts. More interesting.

  3. Kaleva scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very nice malt despite it’s NAS. Full-bodies, well balances, pleasant on every tasting stage. It lacks complexity but it’s very drinkable and cask strength in addition. Good choice to enjoy without high expectations. Quite pricey though.
    • Nose
      Light, fruity (tropical fruit caramel candies), dried apples and sultanas, strawberry jam, honey notes, hint of barley, a bit of vanilla, mineral and woody notes on the background. Water opens beautiful sherry notes and intensifies wood.
    • Taste
      Sweet, slightly spicy (ginger and some intense “winter” spices like clove and cardamom), blackcurrant jam, chocolate, a lot of oranges, gentle oak
    • Finish
      Short, a bit sweet, different berries, blackcurrant leaves, creamy notes, mild oak

  4. Astrid scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    It was salted later, right?

    The 51.5% Vol. bring a lot of pressure and that's just fine. He looks much more alive than the 15-year-old and the Double Cask. Although there are indications of the use of inferior barrels, but not so disturbing.

      except vanilla, nothing, much later - at least for the newer bottlings of Glen Scotia - so typical interplay between sweetness - represented here by honey and caramel - and maritime to salty flavors, pine needles and resin and finally also charred oak, a fruit mix of strawberries and various types of berries, flanked by banana and blood orange, amarula, lots of brown sugar, tobacco, marzipan
    • Taste
      84 84
      Honey and vanilla, spice and oak are more pronounced here, but the maritime notes are rather in the background, a touch of malt, oily-syrupy, burned sugar, espresso, leather, tobacco, damp soil, pepper and ginger go hand in hand, something Menthol, hints of banana and dry plum
    • Finish
      79 79
      earthy-woody, leather, tobacco, burned sugar, charred wood, rather dry, slightly peppery and grassy, minimal malting effect, vanilla, later honey and walnut, salt
