    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 258 bottles from cask 1071
    Glen Scotia has always been the poor relation of Springbank, and its make is inconsistent – which makes it all the more exciting when you find an exceptional cask! This example, is from a refill hogshead and is pale gold in colour. At natural strength, the nose is of French apple tart, but made with Granny Smith apples (slightly acidic), and a hint of icing sugar with lemon juice. The nose remains fresh when water is added, joined now by wood shavings and a light vanilla toffee note. There is a trace of smoke (char) behind and a curious meaty (haggis) note. The mouthfeel is oily, with an attractive balance – light sweetness, drying to slightly bitter, with a lingering nutty flavour and a slight medicinal trace (Elastoplast). Sweet tobacco in the development.

    More schnapps than whisky and too alcoholic for my tastebuds.
    • Nose
      Warming and fresh and fruity. There are grainy notes, sweet grass, vanilla and lots of pears. Nice and pleasant.
    • Taste
      Powerful, young, hot and spirity. The alcohol burns mouth and throat but takes some time until it is really warming from deep inside. On the way down the gullet it feels like floating lava. The alcohol dominates everything and in the background there are some pear schnapps, vanilla, bread and grainy notes.
    • Finish
      Long, hot and clean on notes of pear schnapps. Becoming dry towards the end.
