    What's wrong with Glen Scotia? They're throwing an unpeated 10-year-old on the market, with all the characteristics that one rejects: 40%, colored, filtered. And here comes a 10 year old: peated, 46%, uncoloured, un-chillfiltered. This is exactly how we want our whisky - Integrity Whisky. Ok, it has to taste good too... But the chances are good. He came second in the WhiskyJason Campbeltown Mega Blind Tasting. He was even the winner for me. So let's taste it again in peace.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruits, citrus fruits such as grapefruit and a strong vanilla come to the nose. In addition, a smoke that provides the Campbeltown character of the whisky. This gives it an interesting appearance in the glass, the whisky has everything that the Glen Scotia 10 lacks with its too weak, sweet and perfumed appearance. In summary – he has character!
    • Taste
      There's a nice smoky note that isn't ashy and dry but has an underlying maritime character that adds some dirt and Campbeltown funk. There are harbor flavors with some oil and fish - but on a sunny afternoon with a fresh breeze from the land. Behind the smoke comes cherry cake with vanilla cream.
    • Finish
      The smoke ensures that the whisky is not volatile, but remains in the mouth and can also develop its vanilla aromas.

      This is a vanilla dessert at Campbeltown Harbor. The whisky isn't particularly complex or layered, it has the vanilla from the bourbon cask and the funk from the smoke. But that's enough after 10 years for an interesting whisky that gives access to the proper Glen Scotias, which are regularly released as single casks or in the excellent Campbeltown Malts Festival editions. Fortunately, this Geln Scotia has little in common with the 10-year-old unpeated from the same barrels apart from the distillery ...
