    Nose: Apples and starfruits rushing to the face, random strong alcohol, seamless charcoal and smoke, and of course a lot of wood, very dry, sharp, not so easy to approach. I picked up the flame gun and roasted the bottom of the cup (I don’t know why I did it), and I really found different aromas, batamwood, salty nuts, cream, pancakes, croissants, although I I won't be scared off by this kind of whisky, but I really don't appreciate this sharp beauty.

    Drink: The wine is strong, fierce, and continues to ignite your mouth. The aroma is mainly apple, wood, salty nuts, and it is somewhat bitter.

    Overall: This bottle of wine gives me the feeling that it is very reluctant. The level and complexity of the aroma, the body and the sense of alcohol are controlled. I may not actively want to drink this bottle of wine. By the way, I drink a 30ml sharing bottle. Thank you Benson for sharing. I hope you won't see this note.

    At first very astringent, with a little water and time the Scotia opens up more and more.

    Wood tart and very spicy! Orange peel, pear peel, peach, unripe bananas, but all the more spicy with bourbon vanilla, laurel and above all strawberry mint, fresh oak that goes bitter into almonds, cocoa, green cuttings, cut flowers and old leather.

    The malt comes out strong and full on the tongue, the spice pushes out the back very strongly. Very peppery. In addition to the previous notes, I still have distinct liquorice and dark nut flavors (Brazil nuts, walnuts) and an overripe apple on the tongue. The aftertaste is medium long.

    Unfortunately not the best Glen Scotia, unfortunately dominated by wood, despite everything a very competent whisky.

    I really enjoyed this, sort of on the funky fruity side with not that much smoke. More lively than the 15 year peated rum, much better than the unfunky 18. Sad about the missing age statement, worried about batch inconsistencies, but I would consider buying more of this (which is rare, I usually just like to move on).
