Whisky Reviews for Glen Scotia 2002

- with water: more caraway seeds come through, plus orange oil
Conclusion: delicious part, the nose is very spicy, but it really starts on the tongue after a cautious start, I like it a lot
Chocolate, lots of spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, caraway), subtle earthy, camphor, some toffee, nutty, plum jam, some gum
first a little flat on the tongue, then nice sherry influence, plum, toffee, nut and some wood spice - yummy
long, strong sherry, nutty, milk chocolate flavored with nutmeg, pepper and subtle wood smoke
- It has a lot of spice in it, interesting and exciting, few to no missing notes, the finish could be a little better.
Really nice drinking chocolate in the nose, camphor, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, oiled leather, black cherry, earthy moist cocoa beans, plums, raisins
Full, oily, bitter orange with clove, nutmeg, black pepper, allspice, black cherries, raisins, tannins, red apple
Allspice, nutmeg, red apple, some cream, medium length
- Today I'm trying a range from Glen Scotia through a local festival offered virtually. Victoriana (though a more recent non cask strength version), and 3 other samples from the recent online sessions that Glen Scotia did. Let's see how this tastes.
Nose starts out with milk chocolate, aromas of soft red fruits, then nutty aromas, fresh cigar ash, and finally some light smoke.
Palate continues from nose with milk chocolate, red fruits, dry roasted nuts, and oiliness appearing.
Finish is creamy milk chocolate, light spices appearing, light smoke, and lingering oils.
Certainly not a dry sherry bomb, of which there are way too many out there. This is clearly full maturation in a refill cask. It's nutty but has plenty of fruity notes as well, like redcurrants, strawberries and cherry syrup. Touches of milk chocolate as well. Soft notes of damp oak and tobacco too.
Soft oak spices go hand in hand with light touches of dried red fruit and a whiff of dark chocolate, as well as some touches of menthol. Really good without being extremely complex. Add water and it goes into cough syrup territory.
More of the above. Long.
