  1. WhiskyJoey1211 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A nice Glen Scotia from SMWS. Tasted with a couple of drops of water.
    • Nose
      Salted caramel, a bit of alcohol heat, a hint of petrol.
    • Taste
      Quite oily, and plenty of sweet malt. Hints of vanilla from the bourbon barrel.
    • Finish
      Short, with notes of dark chocolate and a dash of pepper. This whisky could have done really well with at least a couple of extra years in the cask.

    On the nose it's a typical Glen Scotia. High bourbon impact, barley sweetnes, vanilla and caramel, alcohol is quite punchy. On the palate, strong alcohol, salty, bitter and sweet notes. Finish quite short and bitter.

    SMWS Tasting Notes: Mint-tainted petrol and coconut oil provided high octane fuel before being joined by vanilla, cocoa nibs and clotted cream to oil the gears. Citrus oils and creamed coconut levels were high on the dipstick as we prepared apple juice, fresh lime and sea salt. After adding water and using cut peat for ignition, a bang and a splutter sounded an explosion of nutmeg, eucalyptus and camphor. The outburst detonated spicy medicinal notes and herbs on the tongue where they found balance among cream-covered fruit and vanilla. A fresh menthol character remained, cooling the exhaust fumes and merging with clams cooked in a white wine sauce on the finish.
