  2. Noface83 scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Young, crisp, tasty and intense. just the thing for a cozy evening with friends to bring some maritime feeling in the tasting. Absolutely cool PLV and my new favorite standard in the 10Y range.
    • Nose

      Fresh and salty, great maritime notes, slightly spicy smoke (reminiscent of Talisker), fresh malt, lemon juice, flowery sweetness (slight perfume note), subtle pepper from the oak.
      Simply and simply great - for me a great Talisker replacement (this picks me up with its current quality just not more)

      creamy and fresh, vanilla, salt water, lychee juice, lots of pepper and light oak bitterness. Smoke is almost gone. Again, without much depth but absolutely intense and still tasty.
    • Finish

      Now the oak is becoming more and more dominant, lemon zest and salt, pepper and malty sweetness. At the very end, there is some smoke added to the oak. Warm, long, intense and delicious.

  5. Totoro scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Creamy, herbal, spicy, not hugely peaty, but very substantial. The salty-and-savory distillate meshes well with the vanilla-and-caramel avalanche of the first-fill Bourbon casks (though you have to be into this sort of thing).

    Overall, another reminder that Glen Scotia put out great whisky these days, and at reasonable prices. Recommended!

  6. Tabrulavubeg scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior
