Yes, I admit: I'm a Glen Scotia fan. I have tasted quite a few Scotia's over the past months. Most were good; some were not so good. But this is a different level; and I mean this in a positive way.
As soon as the first flavors rise from the glass, I new this was gonna be good. Typical old style whisky. No sign of the typical coastal style of modern Scotia's. Rather fresh even. With on top musty and dusty notes. Sherry influence can hardly be recognized. Let the quality, years and oxidation do the talking.
Full body; even at just 43% abv. Like more often can be found in these older style whiskies. Very layered and complex. Again grassy, fresh and green fruits.
Long finish. Aforementioned flavors continue in the finish.
Conclusion: a Scotia which cannot be compared to today's bottles I tasted recently. I also do not get the low scores here. Just imagine I could find this one at just 50 Euro.
