    Sometimes life as a whisky connoisseur can be disturbing. Clearly, the bottle of 10-year-old Glen Scotia's design is out of line with what we're used to, but how many things in life should it mean here: it's all about the inner values. And that's what you want to prove in Campbeltown's Glen Scotia distillery. Undyed and not filtered, the youngster in the glass shines with his pale gold. He does not hide his youth, perhaps even underlines his sweetly maritime character, which pairs in the nose with pears and citrus flavors. But for the first time in his mouth, he wants to be wild - just like the punk beef that adorns his label, he is a rebel, apart from his creamy beginning, he does not want to do anything with boring whisky at all. But also how many punks he is in the beginning spicy, exciting and new, presents himself in the mouth for a long time, perhaps because he does not quite like to go, because he really warm on the finish he will not. In fact, he does not offer much complexity, but he does not want to. Glen Scotia wants to be an honest dram we consume in everyday life. He can certainly attract with his nose and then convinced with citrus and spice in the mouth. If you like the beginnings, keep in mind that even punk grow up.

    Blind I would not even have been sure if that's whisky at all. It smells and tastes very fruity, with pears dominating. He is very cute. I could have blindly confused him with a fruit brandy or a grappa. The departure was unfortunately very short. If you like sweet fruity whiskys you will be well served here. I'll probably still not buy it, as it's just not enough whisky for me, but he already liked it.

    bright, golden color Slightly salty on the nose, slightly youthful nice ex-bourbon cask Notes: clear vanilla, light caramel, hard pineapple, lemon / lime, some oak, light fruit juice, refreshing towel (lemon), even in the nose a bit tingling Mild, creamy oak in the mouth, sparkling alcoholic, refreshing, not racy or jerky, vanilla is there, citrus in beginnings The finish is very short with some American oak Easy to drink, light, maritime, nice ex-bourbon notes, a bit too youthful (but not unpleasant), could use a few more years, for about 30 € in order

    Some malts take a while to get into and some just hit the spot on the first glass, this is the latter. Never had Glen Scotia before, didn't know much about it either, so this is a really nice surprise and I like that. I definitely will be trying others.

    This is a wonderful malt and a wedding Anniversary present off my wife.
    • Nose
      Sweet as a nut and Fresh as paint, lovely. This nose is as floral as they come with  some mixed spices in there, lots of sherbet dip and a little hint of coconut.
    • Taste
      The taste starts off with a little mint then some lemon meringue, followed by all sorts of Confectionery. Medium bodied it is bitter sweet with a touch of liquorice but it's all good. 
    • Finish
      The finish is long and chalky with custard on the death.

    I'm really impressed by this. The dreadful packaging makes me think that the liquid in the bottle will be tacky and cliched, but this is good stuff. I can't imagine what the clever person that made the whisky thinks about the packaging.
    • Nose
      Sweet, floral, parma violets, a touch of honey and summer fruits. Much more honey with water and some gummy sweetness.
    • Taste
      Fruit sweets melted into honey with light licqorice and fennel.
    • Finish
      Vicks Vaporub, drying, salty, then sweet, then more fennel.
