    Another quality finished whisky Glen Scotia, this time in a PX hogshead and made better by the fact that it's peated! I've read that this was initially a vatting of first fill bourbon barrels that had been filled into a first fill PX cask that is usually used for the Victoriana. Kudos to the team at Callander for picking this one.
    Value (£65) : 8/10
    • Nose
      The nose on this is immense and initially very PX forward. Immediate wafts of sweet treacle, juicy sultanas and dates. Wonderful and rich, the marine character of the spirit give this the aroma of salted caramel as well. Baked apple crumble with a dusting of cinnamon. The peat is intertwined with the sweetness, slightly smoky with plenty of charred notes. Some freshly cracked black pepper and candied ginger bring along some heat.
    • Taste
      Again, sweet on the palate, with an oily viscosity to it. More sultanas, dates and baked apples come through now. That ginger heat intensifies along with an addition of orange zest and more cinnamon. There is a tannic quality to it now as well with some drying tobacco throughout. Still that salted caramel note is dominant before the peat shows itself once again. Now that classic Glen Scotia minerality shows itself. Slightly more ashy now on the palate.
    • Finish
      That sweet cinnamon coated fruit and ash continue into the finish. Gradually the sweetness dissipates and makes way for more drying and bitter flavours of espresso and leather as the peat intensifies slightly on the finish. The minerality comes through very well on the finish with plenty of marine seaspray.
