Seriously: that's a really great bottling with a lot of Springbank and Campbeltown feeling. Not the first time that Glen Scotia has been surprised lately with a very successful bottling.
Smells like a warm caramel candy at first, looks creamy and creamy. The smoky note is discreetly noticeable and does not get crowded. It now urges a fresh and refreshing lemon note forward, mixed with pineapple slices and Madarinen from the tin. Sweetness of sugar water and honey. And there is something that slows down the sweetness and does not let it get too intense, a mineral note that does not even remotely remind Springbank. Saltwater wetted pebble, some machine oil - absolute Campbeltown feeling.
Tasty onion, dry and smoky, with lemon pie, orange peel, tangerines and crushed bananas. Vanilla is also there. Dryness is spreading, causing wood chips to fall on the tongue. Only a little seasoning of spices or herbs, wood and smoke are leading here. Also on the tongue you can taste Campbeltown - if you like these mineral notes, this somewhat bulky, which turns out to be very pleasing on the tongue in connection with the fruits, then you will enjoy it here. Milk chocolate, freshly roasted coffee beans and now not a little spice of marjoram, pepper and nutmeg.
Medium to long, dry, but not drier than at the beginning on the tongue. Salty, mineral, still orange and citrus fruit.
