  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This is a decent matured sherried dram. Bottled right in time!
    • Nose
      A good decent matured dram. This has nice sherry influences, a savory note and a hint of sea breeze. There is quite some red fruit, nuttiness and other notes which I in general would describe as hardy.
    • Taste
      Sweet and sour arrival, almost Speyside like. There is the obvious burst of red fruit. Spices, like dark spices, even cinnamon and cardamon. Some red candy. Fruitella sweets.
    • Finish
      Long length. Here also the red fruits and nice sherry influences. But there is also again the hardy note here. Fades away with a touch bitterness and quite some sawdust.

    A horny dram. In cask strength I would have preferred to try it, but in drinking strength he invites you to drink :-D
    • Nose
      92 92
      Coffee, roasted aromas, both wet and dry tobacco, biscuits with raisins, the typical for me Glen Scotia pine needles I find subliminal underneath, then plums in chocolate and very light coastal impact, somehow the mixture of pure forest honey
    • Taste
      89 89
      Smooth and gentle onset, then he begins slowly with sherry notes, chocolate and some mineral Campbeltown character to push, raisins and orange jelly, quite dry with time
    • Finish
      88 88
      Tidy oak with some dryness, a bit of bitterness and lots of tobacco, coffee and chocolate

  5. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasty and complex malt. Pretty dark character. Has something
    • Nose
      Complex. You have to sort it first. I mean to hear some smoke? Vanilla pipe tobacco. Plum jam. Nutmeg. Cloves. Black tea with some milk. Everything pretty interwoven.
    • Taste
      Another hint of smoke. Much sweeter than in the nose. The plum jam is more likely to plum compote. Bread with fruits. Orange peel.
    • Finish
      Again black tea this time without milk. Lightly salted liquorice. Tobacco.

  6. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    My best Glen Scotia so far, really like walking in a Seville Bazaar.
    • Nose
      Sherry, orange, caramel, honey, unripe banana, mixed fruit palinka, antique skin, oak and a lot of spices.
    • Taste
      Powerful, sweet and spicy. Honey, ginger, bitter oak, salted caramel, tobacco, anise, cinnamon and nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, oaky, fruity.

    • Nose
      Very intense and incredibly multi-layered, interwoven, aromas slowly rise from my glass. Strong Feuerzangenbowle, paired with overripe, sweet, red fruits, juicy oranges, plenty of nuts and chocolate (tending toward dark chocolate) I perceive in the first moment. Initially hard to identify spice notes flood my nose, which opens a little after a few minutes. I discovered my cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Heavy aromas still linger in the background. Leather, sweet pipe tobacco and a subtle hint of sulfur are clearly visible. The name "Seville Bazaar" hits it perfectly. Great!
    • Taste
      Strong start, with an intense aroma transport. The mouthfeel is very oily, almost silky soft. Sweet sherry notes, especially oranges, cherries, plums, raisins, strong forest honey and a hint of caramel form the flavor foundation. The strong spices will not be long in coming. Again, I find cinnamon and nutmeg, a little pepper, bitter almonds, pipe tobacco and spicy oak notes, which already provide a slight bitterness.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Sweet sherry notes, with a light pepperiness, quickly give way to intense spices and oak. The bitterness is palpable, but not too dominant for my taste. At the very end still slightly dry and pleasantly warming.

  9. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The nose is incredibly promising and the taste manages to keep those expectations down, a total less breath could be burned in the mouth.
    • Nose
      Incredibly great nose, like a perfect, darkest rum, stew of nuts, trail mix, raisins, spices from all over the world, cinnamon, papaya, olives, cardamom, fennel, etc.
    • Taste
      Chocolate syrup over rum cake, burned caramel, rum compote, raisins, dark berries, herbs and spices such as saffron, cardamom, thyme, anise, cumin, dark chocolate, burned oak
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, burnt caramel, dark plum and fig, saffron remains

    From 2016-04-03:

    Glen Scotia 24 1991 Wymess Seville Bazar 46% WID: 72836

    Nose: raisins, slightly smoky? Dried plum, a few dried red apples, all very dense and full. Chocolate, a little darker, but not bitter. Hazelnuts. Nougat. Also some caramel with time. Very many spices are coming. First, more Christmas. Then they mix with the light smoke that I was allowed to scoop in the beginning and change. Christmas is gone. I am now in a spice shop. Nutmeg. It smells kind of salty. I turn the glass off again, give it time again and hope that the dried fruit come back. A few raisins are back. But I'm still in the spice shop. Until I smell something leathery. There is some chocolate in the background again.
    Taste: sweet, raisins. Plums. Many spices, but not very Christmassy. Salt. For a long time, everything is a balanced unit, until finally the spices gain the upper hand.
    Departure: wood, delicate smoke, raisins cover the tongue until it becomes bitter. Bitterness becomes stronger and remains medium in the mouth. The esophagus stays warm for a bit longer.
    Conclusion: The nose kills me. There is so much in here. I would like to name the spices, but I do not know it so well. The taste is a bit salty. However, it still harmonizes quite well. The finish is a bit too bitter for me.

  11. Sandman scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Found him much more powerful than the ABV suggests. Blind tasted during PO2016!
    • Nose
      Cherries, raspberry, blackberries, raisins, rubber, chocolate, vanilla and orange.
    • Taste
      Pepper, toffee, cinnamon, chocolate, raisins, rubber, raspberry, cherries and a touch of coffee.
    • Finish
      Long, greasy, dark fruit, cinnamon and pepper.

  12. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Never would have guessed this to be a Glen Scotia. It’s lush, succulent and slightly challenging due to the earthy and almost farm like feel to it. So far this is the best scoring whisky from the blind tasting competition for me.
    A surprisingly good Glen Scotia!

    Tasted blind during PO2016
    • Nose
      A delicate yet rich, sweet an balanced whisky with aromas of sweet sherry, red apple, pear, banana peels, hay, grass, dried flowers, earthy tones, dried fruits (sultanas, figs, plums) camomile, caramel, honey, acetone, stale cellar, old books, a hint of leather, tea, cinnamon, nutmeg, curry leafs, cumin, walnuts and creamy oak.
    • Taste
      A powerful, sweet, rich and balanced whisky with aromas of solvent tones (acetone), honey, icing sugar, candied ginger, pepper, tannins, hint of sulphur, dried fruits (dates, figs, plums, cherries) apple, pear, hint of leather, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, hint of sea salt, milk chocolate, hint of aniseeds, faith tobacco and spicy oak.
    • Finish
      A medium and slightly drying finish honey, dried fruits, apple, tannins, backing spices, chocolate, orange, subtle brine, grapefruit peels and spicy oak.

  13. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Tasted during a blind tasting competition in May/June 2016.   
    • Nose
      Sultana, cherries, rhubarb, a hint of tobacco and leather, and a pinch of salt. 
    • Taste
      Full throttle on the sherry! Cherries, figs, plums - the heavy red stuff. Then followed by lots of spiciness (particularly cinnamon). Some anise at the roof of the mouth. Yet it has a hint of something dry/smoky: tobacco comes to mind. 
    • Finish
      Spices lingering with a touch of herbal tones. Oh yes, cherries coming forward, together with some salty licorice. Not a very long finish though. 

  14. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting. Thought it to be a Jura.
    • Nose
      Rhubarb jam, raspberry. Metallic. New wooden & leather furniture. Apple, orange and spice. A little salami and a bit of puke. Water releases some peat and dough.
    • Taste
      Peppery. Blueberry, orange, rusty iron, caramel and plum. With water cheese and sweet dough.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate, cranberry, orange, malt and a little fish.

    The second tasting:
    I like the nose very well today. Beautiful spices paired with sherry. Today, a little sulfur is also at the start. Solid.

    In and then nice bitterness that gets sweet pretty fast. Looks very sticky and oily. A little oak is added.

    The medium-long finish is then a mixture of sweet and spicy.

    Here, the name speaks for itself. This is a real spice bomb. That's how I imagine a bazaar. I like it better than the Leather-bound Ledger.
    • Nose
      sweet sherry; Toffee; spices; oranges; even after some time remains a subtle note of sulfur; the sherry is more present and also the spices (pepper, nutmeg); it gets sweeter and spicier over time
    • Taste
      sherry again; slightly sweet and again spices; this time only pepper but very dominant; slightly oily; a little chocolate
    • Finish
      medium; dark fruits; again pepper; very light smoke; Chocolate and raisins; slight bitterness from the oak; very spicy again

  22. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A very delicate and pleasantly reserved dram. Very well balanced.
    Lingering spices intermingle with delicious sherried fruit notes and a
    nice touch of maritime aroma. A not overly sherried whisky which I
    enjoyed very much. This delicious and vibrant malt demands your full
    attention!

    • Nose
      The nose starts off with a delicate fruity aroma - oranges, red berries
      and papaya. Sweet with notes of sherry, nougat and lingering nutty
      flavours. Becomes fresher with time with a hint of red pepper in the
      back.
    • Taste
      Syrupy with caramel and a delicate touch of fruity sweetness. Slightly
      bitter oranges followed by a massive load of pleasant spices - cinnamon,
      crystallised ginger, nutmeg and white pepper. Nicely dry towards the
      finish with dark chocolate and lingering cocoa notes.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and mouth-coating. Slightly oily with a wee
      touch of salty caramel, bitter orange, and a maritime edge on the tail.

      WITH WATER: There's almost no change on the nose with water. The
      sweetness is a bit tamed on the palate, bringing more spiciness and
      delicate prickling oak to the fore, accompanied by pleasant sweet sherry
      notes. The finish is medium long and warm, with a significant maritime
      and salty touch.
