GLEN SCOTIA Double Cask 46%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Campbeltown, 70cl, Ref: 51831
Double Cask is matured in oak barrels then finished in a combination of first fill bourbon barrels followed by time in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks to produce this distinctive malt whisky that provides the perfect balance of rich spicy fruits, overlaid with the characteristic sea spray and vanilla oak finish for which the house of Glen Scotia is famous.
- Appearance : amber.
- Nose : very sweet. Initially it is all crème caramel, caramelised fruit sugars, wood sugar, toffee and fudge before some apple and peach come through. In time a charred note of bourbon with a pleasing dusty dryness. Has some power.
- Palate : sweet start and quite fat and though the alcohol gives a little tongue-tingling buzz the result is a good mid-palate weight.
- Overall : deep and dark.
- 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.

Un whisky de la région de Campbeltown: un côté marin typique de la région adouci par la double maturation.
