Whisky Reviews for Glen Scotia 18-year-old

20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.84 points

  1. Othorion scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sea breeze, mint, lime juice, earthy, very delicate smoke, pears, cereals, thyme
    • Taste
      creamy, relatively soft, some pepper, again the pear, thyme, milk chocolate, a hint of vanilla, cornflakes
    • Finish
      Medium, warming, pepper, now bittersweet chocolate and some coffee, spicy

  2. Erik1908 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    This bottle was my contribution to the Loch Lomond Group tasting I had with my friends. The quality of the Glen Scotia compared to the GS 15y, made me modify my score for the Glen Scotia 15y from 87 to 86. The Glen Scotia is in all aspects much more mature.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Coastal smell, fruits, more spicy compared to the 15y.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Fruits, vanilla, good body. Oily, waxy.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long and nice. In the very end a touch of smoke.

  3. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very decent whisky. Can you drink well? But now nothing that imposes itself as a purchase candidate. But I would not refuse, if he is offered to me.
    • Nose
      He is set as the 15er. But still has a certain freshness. The fruits are a bit yellow. Glazed yellow apple in butter. Physalis. In addition a clear citrus note, which I describe with lemon cake. Vanilla and charcoal.
    • Taste
      Pretty oily. Reminds me a bit of the very juicy and delicious Eierlikörkuchen (there comes a lot of oil) my mother. With some apricot jam. Take 2 orange drops. Now a little ginger. After that, it gets a little more acidic.
    • Finish
      Grapefruit. Milk with a lot of unsweetened cocoa. It is getting drier. Some grass.

  4. ishi scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Difficult and attractive aroma, fruity, malty; sweet, very smooth, bit salty. Very good

  5. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Colour: amber.
    Nose: sweet, leather, vanilla, salt, spices, oak, grass, sweet fruits, furniture varnish, cake and olive oil.
    Mouth: sweet fruits, salt, spices, oak, pepper and chocolate.
    Finish: long with spices, vanilla, chocolate, dust and smoked salmon closer to the end.
    Glen Scotia 18YO is a good balanced, complex and interesting whisky for thoughtful drinking.

  6. Noface83 scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Great OA with age, 46% and not cool filtered. That brings intense notes and neat spice. However, the wood is quite dominant and you have to like that - especially in the finish.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fresh (slightly salty sea air and lemon), fruity (pear) and honey-sweet, caramel biscuit, malt, light smoke and earthy notes. The oak also taps with sharp wood notes and herbs.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Crunchy, tingling and woody. Malt coffee and a lot of chocolate, some salt caramel, vanilla and some pepper and herbs.
    • Finish
      84 84
      First chocolate again, then lots of pepper, menthol and bitterness, plus honey sweetness and licorice. Medium long and on the woody side.

  7. mosesumike scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Who knows the 15er has nothing here. He is round and fruity. Has a slightly smoky touch but can not do anything better than the 3 year younger brother. On the contrary, here I had a slight bitterness. At 15 there was nothing to feel.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Delicate vanilla honey with straw and tobacco in the background. Very good to smell are the citrus notes but also the apple Helene speaks up. Is there a sea breeze? or even some bitter wood notes? Difficult to make out. The nose is very reserved.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Spicy peppery with oily oak sweetness it starts on the palate. Apple Helene and a hint of vanilla consolation over the slightly bitter wood. Somewhat sharper than the nose and slightly salty (imagination). Behind the nutmeg comes some tobacco and new leather to advantage. Already delicious.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium to long and extremely spicy peppery (me too much) he logs off with dark chocolate in the coffee slowly.
      He loses the comparison to the 15er with me clearly. But still a good malt. Especially in the PLV!

  8. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    It has potential, especially in the nose, but it does not exhaust it until the end. In the finish he falls unfortunately pretty much.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Honey-swirled apricot and peach pieces. The sweetness but only at the beginning, quite short. Then: mineral, salty. Menthol. Lemon water. Beautiful chocolate and coffee bean notes. Caramels. Interesting mixture.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Very chocolaty on arrival, with orange zest, hazelnuts and almonds. Mild and dry from the beginning. Dried dates, dark chocolate, bread dough. Something watery creeps in and dilutes the flavors a bit. Finally salty and peppery.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium-long and dry, with chocolate, marzipan, coffee powder and menthol.

  9. SweetPeat scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Super interesting, very complex, varied. Have never smelt so much malt in a whisky!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Liquorice, salami mousse, smoky, soot, heavy oil, Williams Christ pear, herbs, a trace of hay. The smoke reminds of the Fujikai 10 years, but in delicious.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Heavy oil, soot, wax, heaps of malt, peach, caramel, brown cane sugar, pepper on the tip of the tongue, neat oak, but not bitter, dark chocolate with coffee bean splinters
    • Finish
      87 87
      long (7/10) and slightly dry

  10. Frion83 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Rich, rich and complex copy.
    • Nose
      Dried figs, deciduous foliage, vanilla and oak. Sherry sweetness and berry sourness. A grain of salt.
    • Taste
      Oily fruit bomb. Saturated, dense, sherry, vanilla with oak.
    • Finish
      Long, rather sherry, with oak and vanilla.
