  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nice whisky, but I miss the raw edge a little, that I usually find in Glen Scotia's. A lot of fruitiness, quite powerful. Still a good dram for sure.
    • Nose
      85 85
      The nose is more polished than I would expect from a Glen Scotia. No smoky or dirty edges, but just a lot of fruit. Apples, some citrus, orange. Only after quite some time, some smokiness peeps in.
    • Taste
      87 87
      In the body it is more outspoken, stronger. Fruity again, with more strawberry now, and vanilla. Creamy structure, with also some spiciness, pepper.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Strawberry and vanilla remain in the finish, which is less pungent than the body. The taste remains for quite long, with some wood now as well, toothpicks.

  2. Rowald Sweet Empire scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Not a big fan of the newish/young bourbon Glen Scotia. It has a certain spirity and clean tone that does not appeal to me. But somehow this young Scotia does. The typical spirity tone is present but nicely layered into tones of sweet cinnamon rolls, shortbread and something the Dutch know as "Kerststol". Nicely spiced. Some fruitiness...apple perhaps. I drank this as part of a line up so that might have lifted it up....but it is a nice Scotia for such a young one.

  4. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A bit odd for a Scotia, young and well matured and rather tasty.
    • Nose
      Full fruity, fresh apple juice. A little light note, like camphor in the background. Some hay and a hint of fudge.
    • Taste
      Sweet and hay like. Marzipan and a little salt actually. young but mature. Quite an odd, but tasty taste.
    • Finish
      Medium-long length. Quite a burst of laurel and liquorish. Fades away with some salted caramel and wood notes. A little peppery though.

    Tasty stuff from a distillery I've come to like quite a bit. Not your everyday dram, but that also means it has plenty of character and singularity.
    • Nose
      Somewhat fruity at first. Lemon zest, oranges and lime peel (indeed, very citric). Even a tad candy-esque at a certain point (candy hearts), before showing its dirtier side. After a little while there's a bit of wet rope, cookie dough and a touch of diesel, even a whiff of salmiac liquorice. Pretty idiosyncratic.
    • Taste
      Quite creamy (vanilla-esque), a touch salty and somewhat dirty, with a hint of copper coins. There's a whisper of lemon yoghurt and a some spicy oak.
    • Finish
      Green apple and lingering sweetness.

  8. WillemvdK scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    In real Campbeltown fashion, this one is a bit dirty. But I like it. Ripe strawberries, kerosene or diesel fumes, dextrose candy, and chalk. One hell of a strange combination but it works in this whisky for sure! Finish is a bit smokey.

  9. St. Pauli scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Colour: pale gold
    • Nose
      87 87
      It's rather complex, hitting many spots. It is certainly a bit dirty, with some fumes, exhaust smoke, diesel, almond and fennel. It's also rather yeasty, with dough, pastry, and fruity with apple, kiwi and lime.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The malty and dirty character stays. It's a bit more towards nuts and fennel, than to the oily and smoky side of dirty. Addidional there is a salty tang. The pastry and dough like character is strengthened with vanilla.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Fairly long, a bit dry on clove. There is a return of the smoke/fumes, and it works well together with Apfelstrudel.

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      85 85
      Dough-like malt with spice, reminding me of Amrut initially. Apple, sweet lime, almond and a bit of peach. With water there's baby wipes.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Dough-like malt, apple, star anise, plum, curry and honey.
    • Finish
      84 84
      More smoke. Cookie, fig, apple, caramel and curry.
