Whisky Reviews for Glen Scotia Victoriana

41 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.58 points

  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Hot. Hamse got off to a good start. Idiosyncratic. Interesting. Fat. After the not bad - but very "cozy" - last "cattle" range a very positive surprise.
    • Nose
      wow - the smell has its own, fascinating, smoky-spicy, but not in the Scottish way, rather in the Glen-Els-Alrik direction, plus salt and some Maggi, roasted and salted peanuts ... Tip: no water, before you get rich
    • Taste
      and again wow - very intense and full-bodied, oily, the flavors are found 1: 1 in the taste again, to dark chocolate, sugar beet syrup, you want my charcoal (or burnt bread roll) ... heavy, dark ...
    • Finish
      long, bittersweet, sticky, a pinch of pepper

  2. Pollenflug scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      I immediately like the elegant nose: burnt caramel crust of crème brûlée, vanilla, ripe (light) fruits and subtle oak notes are immediately present. The alcohol (51.5%) is initially noticeable by a slight cooling, which disappears after a few minutes. The beautiful aroma, peppered with many sweet fruit notes, strong roasted aromas and light smoke, reveals many more associations over time. Peaches, red fruits, bananas, marzipan, roasted peanuts / cashews, malt, burnt crust of bread, mineral notes (salt) and delicate smoke (reminds me of sweet cigar smoke) follow. Exciting and multifaceted!
    • Taste
      The Glen Scotia starts powerful and pleasantly oily. Freshly ground pepper prances briefly on the tip of the tongue and causes a slight tingle. The taste is almost an image of the nose crystallized out. Strong roasted aromas (coffee, peanuts and creme brulee), plenty of vanilla / caramel, sweet fruits, orange peel, dark chocolate, marzipan, spicy oak notes and charcoal / light smoke are dominant. The alcohol is very well integrated, so I do without the addition of a few drops of water. The relatively strong contrast between sweet fruit notes and strong roasted aromas blends into a harmonious and not everyday taste experience.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, sweet and spicy and slightly smoky. The sweet fruit notes flash again before the heavy aromas dominate the finish. Strong roasted aromas, orange peel, plenty of dark chocolate, spicy oak notes and light smoke make the malt cease slowly and warming. A delicate bitterness remains on the palate.

  3. chrizthewiz scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Nose: wow, this reeks of freshly picked green apples. Apple crumble, grapefruits and a dash of pinot grigio. Very juicy nose. With air and a few drops of water, it gets saltier and more maritime. Mint, bay leaves, marzipan, salted and roasted cashew nuts and shoe polish. Maybe a few soapy off notes in the background, that remind me of hair shampoo. Nothing too extreme, rather interesting and characterful.

    Taste: pink grapefruits sprinkled with seasalt. Dry and mineral white wine. Crushed green garden herbs. Mint. Drops of soysauce. A nice, subtle bitterness that adds depth and maturity. Its not overly complex, but super delicious.

    Finish: Herbal and minty with a nice lingering bitterness.

    Very impressed. What a characterful bottling from this underrated and understated campelltown destillery. /89

  5. domani scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very interesting whisky which, in my opinion, combines many characteristics of different types of whisky in a hitherto rarely perceived and interwoven way. It is sweet, spicy, woody, fruity and everything is accompanied by a light, gentle smoke - 19.01.2019
    • Nose
      Interesting, slightly musty nose, bright fruit, apple, kiwi, dried wood, cracked walnut, brown sugar, reminds me a lot of the roasted aromas of popcorn, malt, barley grains, nut flavors, almonds, freshly opened pack of pretzel sticks
    • Taste
      Slightly chilling, the alcohol has steam, but I do not find it unpleasant, fruity-aromatic, kumquats, brown sugar, bitterness sets in relatively early and sets, some mint, he exudes some burnt, slightly burnt roasted aromas, caramelized honey
    • Finish

  7. mosesumike scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    So to anticipate it right away. This whisky is self-contained and special. But the 15er has convinced me so, I can not forget that. That's why this is not a NAS I would buy.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Some tobacco and nutty sherry. Steamed peaches. He needs time and some water. Then come bananas, dark sugar with vanilla. Behind it some fresh mint on lemon peel. Roasted aromas with a minimal smokiness.
    • Taste
      84 84
      The banana is now overripe in the leather saddle. In addition, orange peel with a slight tobacco note. Peppery roasted aromas come through. Sweet sugar vanilla behind. Not badly decided in the barrel choice. There comes a hint of tobacco.
    • Finish
      82 82
      It lasts for a long time, with citrus fruits and a compote of dark chocolate and roasted nuts. Slightly bitter oak, but immediately frets with some caramelized sugar. Absolutely ok.

    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/62940

    I also found this very decent last year [85]. You have to admire Glen Scotia for bottling at cask strength – a commitment to ‘craft’ no doubt. Ian tells us that next year, the abv for the Victoriana will be even higher at over 54%.

    C: I want to dilute but water doesn’t help it, which is awkward. Despite a decent enough charred US barrel-led sweet vanilla assembly on the nose and palate, the finish after the spiciness is nothing less than 12 months of oloroso – which resulting quashes my interest. Maybe PX casks would have suited this as well as they did for the Double Cask?Scores a D[+]
