Tasting note

  • Appearance : cuivre orangé.
  • Nose : fin, pulpeux. Avec une remarquable élégance, il oscille entre les fruits frais (abricot), la praline et les fleurs (rose, pivoine). Viennent ensuite des notes de dragée et de miel. L’orge maltée prend peu à peu sa place sur le devant de la scène. A la fois aérien et concentré, il évolue sur les fruits rouges (fraise, framboise).
  • Palate : racée, élégante. Des épices font leur apparition, il y a de la noix muscade, du poivre gris et de la cardamome. Le caractère marin salin de Glen Scotia clairement retranscrit est agrémenté de notes de cuir et de fruits secs (noix de cajou). L’ensemble est recouvert d’une fine couche de caramel.
  • Overall : chaleureuse, les épices n’ont rien perdu de leur présence, bien au contraire. Des fleurs, des fruits secs et de la menthe poivrée ajoutent encore à son tempérament capiteux. Elle hésite au fur et à mesure entre des notes de sel et de lait de coco. Le verre vide est chocolaté et praliné.
The brand

The brand

Located in the heart of the former capital of whisky, Glen Scotia is today just one of three distilleries in Campbeltown to hold a whisky production licence. This town, located in the south of the Kintyre peninsula, was the ancient scene of what could be called the “barley rush”, and in the 1880s was home to some 30 distilleries, including Glen Scotia, which was founded in 1832. At the end of the 20th century, Glen Scotia was mothballed on various occasions (from 1984 to 1989 and from 1994 to 2000), leaving it, likes its counterpart Springbank, with many shortfalls in its stocks. Mostly available as a 12 year old official bottling.

Merchant

At the head of this independent merchant, Fabio Rossi continues the long tradition of Italian whisky bottling. His bottlings mainly concern malt whiskies from the isle of Islay, and are characterised by their sherry cask finishings.

The line

The casks that produce the whiskies in the Barrel Selection are personally selected by Fabio Rossi, director of the independent bottlers, Wilson & Morgan. Bottled without chill filtering or the addition of caramel, the whiskies in this range are often lighter, purer in flavour and more ‘honest’ than some industrial whiskies.
