Unfortunately the whisky lacks any balance and therefore it will stay with me for a sample.
The nose is really multi-layered and interesting: first salt meets seaweed, then a slightly mossy, smelling of wet wood aroma is noticeable. But these nuances, too, gradually fade into the background and bring a bouquet of gooseberries, vanilla, marzipan and ready-made ground to the fore.
The texture of the whisky is pleasantly oily and tastes notes of dark chocolate, cream caramel and cinnamon. Towards the end, a certain fruitiness of pears becomes noticeable again.
The medium-long finish is the biggest weakness of Glen Scotia. Wood and tobacco notes combine to a bitter finish, which is flanked by some smoke and some yeast. Unfortunately, not a very tasty experience.
