    I had heard very different things about the Glen Scotia 18 in advance, so I wanted to make my own picture. I can convince this bottling only in a few parts. Positive is definitely the multi-faceted nose. The taste falls back a bit and the finish is almost uncomfortable.
    Unfortunately the whisky lacks any balance and therefore it will stay with me for a sample.
    • Nose
      83 83
      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.
    • Taste
      71 71
      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.
    • Finish
      66 66
      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.

    First a sweet touch,
    earthy, wet earth over time.
    He looks a bit pale, the barrel doesn't come up quite right.

    Different in taste.
    Expressive.
    He's got a bang.
    Spicy and slightly creamy.
    A certain bitterness.

    You can drink it.
    But you don't have to ...

    Floral and grassy in the nose. At the same time clearly sweet. Spicy on the tongue with strong oak. In the finish more and more spicy. Definitely not an easy dram.

  8. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Mineral nose, spicy, austere. Malty mouth, well spicy. Final rather vegetal, with a touch of vanilla, very persistent and evolving in a subtle way but I can not too much to transcribe. With water ... ah thank you! It's like adding an essential ingredient that was missing from a cake: sugar. There is now honey on the nose and the sweetness has given balance in the mouth. Enthusiasm 3/5

    Good solid malt ... Campbelltown I find almost all good ... I like the style very well ...

    It's easy to drink. However, it is for the 18-year-old drink worth nearly 2 thousand little
    • Nose
      A fairly soft, slightly acidic, luscious vanilla sweetness, but a rather pronounced spiciness
    • Taste
      Woodiness, chocolate, latte macchiato, later citruses, quite pronounced spices
    • Finish
      Lightly fruity, chocolate, woodiness, again enough quite spice
