  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    After some oxidation in the bottle i am really surprised! This one was good already but it turned out to be great! Splendid stuff!
    • Nose
      This reminds me of long, cold winternights in front of the fireplace! Smoldering wood, tropical fruit and a very mild refined peat. there is a Candy like sweetness inthere which is very pleasant! With water more fresh Bourbon notes appear.
    • Taste
      Creamy at first, then the alcohol strength pushes through. That’s quite hard. I want this one with water. With a healthy amount of water it stays creamy. Sweet, sugared fruits. Peat at the end
    • Finish
      This is where the peat reveales itself. Creamy peat, light fresh wood, vanilla and a hint of mango.

    Glen Scotia is "the other distillery" in Campbeltown. Always in the shadow of the big brother Springbank. But they are working hard to close the gap. This bottling is a great attempt to close part of the gap.

    Nose: mild sweetness with a touch of peat.
    Taste: little bit sharp and some peat. Mild though; somewhere like the peaty Ledaig (but not so strong). I am not an Islay peat fan, but this is really good. Peat is strongest in the end. Fruity as well.
    Finish: medium to long.
