Whisky Reviews for Glen Scotia 21-year-old

17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.51 points

  1. Feusi scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

     Fresh citrus fruits with a vanilla sweetness and a nice wooden notes in the nose. A nice mix of citrus, spices, honey and toffe. For me it is not a reinvention of a whiske, it reminds me of a whisky as they once were. For that price, highly recommended.

    [December, 2013]  I found this dram in a commercial advents calendar.  In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 80.  I
    took no detailed notes and never bought a commercial advents calender

  4. Totoro scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Perhaps not on par with recent stellar successes like the rebranded 15-year-old, but still criminally underrated. Lovely maritime malt with plenty of sea salt, lively fruits, a restrained yet distinct oak influence that betrays its age, and a soft smokiness to round things out. For under 90 Euros, this is (or has been) a steal, especially now, when people are gobbling up the Craigellachie 23 for double the price. Newsflash: it's not twice as good.

    Relatively fresh whisky. In addition, I still have a slight hint of smoke. The Malt looks younger than he is. Overall, but not very exciting.

    "Neat, the taste is a little bit peculiar, is quite excentric. Reminds me actually little bit of Edradour."

    Decent dram, but unspectacular, would never have guessed it was a 21 year old whisky.

    This whisky could be more complex. In a blind tasting I would have guessed it is a 12 to 15 year old dram.
