Whisky Reviews for Glen Scotia 2009

- Just wow! Absolutely stunning whisky. The nose tells you all about the palate. Almost perfect. I just wished the finish would be a little bit longer.
The red wine is present right from the beginning. Dry wine, a little sourness, honey, light notes of grape sirup mixed in with a hint of smokiness. Great nose.
Earthy, wet soil, fresh mushrooms, sweetness, a slight bitterness. Quite unusual. Glen Scotia again and again does a great job delivering notes that are rarely found in other malts.
More earthiness, oily, lingering.
- with water: Unfortunately, water does not help against the sharpness of pepper, it remains out of round
Conclusion: interesting, but too out of round, plus the strange Spema note. Not my cup of tea
Strawberry and red currant, strong wood notes, vanilla cream, earthy, some caraway seeds, peppery spiciness
sweet, strawberry jam, very soft, but then there is a strong pepper spiciness, sperm and strong oak tannins
medium, strange, also here the sperm association, red fruits, wood smoke, pepper, very dry at the back
- Very lousy missing notes with heartburn in the mouth and finish, unfortunately not possible, nose was still nice.
Full modern caramel bomb, strawberry-cream lollipop, behind it sweet grasses, yeast dough, cinnamon, marzipan, almonds, red apple, and later also slightly soft leather
Lots of strawberry, but more like sugar syrup. behind it carbonic acid, tonic, lovage, clove, cinnamon, cardamom, resin, salt, gum, vomit, heartburn
Strawberry, red apple, gum, salt, heartburn, medium length
Medium peated at around 20 PPM, this started in a first-fill bourbon cask. It was finished for about a year in a red wine cask. Incredibly oily with only a really soft peatiness and a whiff of oak tannins, without them ever becoming bothersome. Overall rather sweet and candy-esque at times. Cherry candy canes, marshmallows.
Wow, much more peaty than the nose suggests, this actually works really well with the stickiness of the wine. A soft note of struck matches, but also sweet. Some orange marmalade, and the candy makes an encore. Better than expected and much more balanced than most wine finished whiskies.
More of the above. Pretty long indeed.
