    And yet another amazing whisky! So well balanced. The peat and the red fruity notes of the port integrate so well. Greatly balanced!

    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 with chocolate, dark red fruits, cinnamon, then some light oak, spice, some vegetal peat smoke, and perhaps some bacon grease.

    Palate starts with salted chocolate fudge, red fruits, more smoke, and machine oils.

    Finish carries on from the palate and adds some rubber, and a drying oily smokiness.

    • Nose
      Heavily peated at about 30 PPM, this started in a re-charred American oak hogshead. It was finished for about two years in a port cask. Great smokiness. Rather vegetal and reminiscent of a bonfire. Pretty meaty at times, with a touch of smoked bacon, but also a fair amount of dried red fruit.
    • Taste
      Indeed, this is easily the peatiest one and should appeal to any peathead with a sweet tooth. Very sticky again, much like the Bordeaux-finished Glen Scotia. Although it also is rather dry and somewhat salty, there's plenty of dried fruits (raisins) and some faint notes of rubber. Very oily and somewhat reminiscent of this Benromach, although not as intense.
    • Finish
      Lingering peat, a touch of struck matches and soft fruits. Long.
