  1. Torfding scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Has received a really nice color and says otherwise too much. One of those Glen Scotias that I just like about this distillery, pleasant smoke, great value for money (though not cheap for a 11 year old).
    The first few minutes are in the nose pretty much the juiciest impression I've ever had with whisky, very fruity, Christmas scents, in the background is restrained, but noticeably a very pleasant smoke. Over time, the juicy impression subsides, more acidic berries emerge, barrel wort. Maybe more oriental than Christmas?
    In the mouth you can taste different citrus fruits and the slightly spicy notes of ginger, sour berries and other more southern fruits, brown sugar, the smoke becomes even more subtle.
    Very long finish, which fades away and repeatedly bursts, also here fruits and a lot of spice (here actually more exotic) and restrained smoke.
    Over time, it gets a little bit slighter in the mouth and finish, just like other single cask bottlings from Glen Scotia lately. I think that spoils an even better assessment,

    with water: it goes well with water, becomes even softer and rounder

    Conclusion: good combination, the finish is well chosen and very well integrated, one of the few red wine finishes that I really like
    • Nose
      very fruity, especially wild berries and raspberries, also slightly tart, even if the basic tone also has a strong sweetness, malt, some caraway spice, floral aromas and a very subtle trail of smoke, the alcohol is very well integrated
    • Taste
      oily start, but the alcohol is more noticeable here, also here a lot of red berries, some wood and smoke as well as a few spices, citrus
    • Finish
      long, pleasant, red berries, wood and smoke, no bitterness

    I admit that I'm not a huge Glen Scotia fan, but there's nothing wrong with that. The barrel sets the tone except for slight impacts. A whisky that I pour myself but would not buy as a large bottle.
    • Nose
      Starts quite rough and spicy, you definitely need a little air, raspberry spray, PEZ raspberry, yes it gets better quickly with a little air, sweet, light acidity, in the background nuts, dark chocolate, melted, looks very creamy, a hint of Mon Cherie, light malty, and above all there is a very fine floral basic tone, which I like to associate with Glen Scotia, with time it goes away from the creamy and it gets fresher again, with menthol, a hint of glue , I probably smelled it too long and too deeply
    • Taste
      oily and creamy mouthfeel, vinous, a little like a swimming pool (so how does it smell, chlorine?), raspberry, effervescent, that's also what I meant by the swimming pool, nuts, dark chocolate, a basic sweetness resonates, here too something floral , drinkable without water in terms of alcohol strength
    • Finish
      out the back drier, slightly tart, still nuts, light acidity, a little tingling salt on the palate, also vinous here, grapes, lasts a very long time, in the end there is menthol freshness

  7. Mascht scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    dominant to wild berries, great in the nose, slightly unbalanced on the palate
    • Nose
      89 89
      very dense, dark, maritime, and slightly sour, blackberries, candied oranges, old oak, a hint of frankincense and marzipan
    • Taste
      85 85
      dense and sweet, some smoke, glucose, wild honey, sour berries, rhubarb, black pepper, Dan Klorix
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium-long, forest berries remain
