  1. glen efze scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Campbeltown entry-level class: 10 years, unpeated, 40% vol., colored and chill-filtered with a minimum alcohol content. Ok, you can try it, after all it's Glen Scotia, a distillery that has gained a good reputation in recent years - especially with the festival bottlings. In WhiskyJason's Campbeltown Blind Tasting he came in third. Uh, what? Here, too, we have to taste again ...

    • Nose
      The whisky starts off a little flat on the nose, which certainly also explains the weak 40% vol. is owed. But over time it develops a bit. There are fruit notes that are not only on the light fruity side, but also cherry, a little in the direction of artificial cherry aromas. For 10 years the aroma is quite ok.
    • Taste
      The taste is then also cherry, reminiscent of cough drops with cherry flavor. None of this lasts very long and is a bit weak, a little mustiness, funk or maritime aromas flashes behind the fruit, but remains more of an appeal and does not assert itself. The light cherry remains in the foreground, the whisky is sweet overall. There was a cherry sunkist in childhood long ago...
    • Finish
      The finish cannot build up, some cherry menthol remains. And a little bitterness from the undefined casks.

      Quite nice with the cherries - but then overall too meaningless, flat and much too sweet and perfumed. The typical Campbeltown notes are missing, the funk is hinted at and then quickly disappears. Somehow the reason why you should buy this whisky is missing. It's a bit like a wine that's too sweet, flavored with cherry lollipops. Sorry, but this isn't a Campbeltown whisky...

    Oak spice and old, sweet porridge on the nose as well as overlaid, i.e. oxidized white wine. With a couple of old apples.

    On the palate, initially a bit watery and bubbly, then oak spice. Slightly burnt walnut.

    There are real tannins and some resin in the finish; but I find this rocking of sweetness and bitterness quite exciting.

    Quite sweet in the nose with some mustyness. Gluey mouthfeel. Honey sugar with a faint hint of plums, rather like very thin umeshu. Sweetness sticks to the palate. No maritime notes at all.
