Whisky Reviews for Glen Scotia 2006

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.30 points

  1. ARDBERG scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A first fill that smells and tastes like a second fill. Very oily, lucious on yellow fruit if you give it some time to open up: quinces, peaches, apricots and pineapple at the very end, quite syrupy. Fat and oily body - mouthfilling and - watering. Chew well, or you miss the very fruity and syrupy finish. This will be a quick mover at the whisky club.

    • Nose
      89 89
      Sweet and clear bourbon influences, burst of vanilla and cream. There is also a odd salty fudge note here. Very intense nose it is!
    • Taste
      91 91
      Intense burst of flavour. Very bourbonesk but also clearly Glen Scotia. Marzipan, fudge, vanilla some salted caramel. Very thick and oily. A little hint of flowers too.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Very long length. Again very tasty and fades away very beautiful. Loads of bourbon notes, some dark spices, vanilla and fudge.

    I believe this bottle is only available in the distillery shop in Campbeltown. Bought it after the tour we did back in April of 2019. Tour was not that good; very poor and average. This whisky is the opposite though.

      Beautiful heavy intense nose. What an arrival! Fruit and spices everywhere.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Oily and waxy. This whisky requires some drops of water to open up and to get somewhat control over the powerful spices on the tongue. Very warm feeling in mouth and throat.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Finish lasts for ages. Warm feeling continues. The rain comes poring down when I opened the bottle. Exactly the right moment as this is not really a summer dram

    This Glen Scotia is very intense on nose, taste and finish. It delivers thick vanilla aromas accompanied with mangos, pineapples, coconut and bourbon’y spices. It has a very thick and oily body. Yes it’s young and alcohol could be beter integrated, but this 1st fill barrel delivered a stunner.
