Glen Scotia Double Cask Whisky 20cl
This 20cl of the Glen Scotia Double Cask is the ideal gift for a whisky lover.
Glen Scotia Double Cask is a wonderfully easy-drinking Campbeltown Single Malt with tastes of toffee, salted caramel and a sweet dry sherry finish.
Aged in bourbon barrels before being finished in PX sherry casks, this expression provides the perfect balance of rich spicy fruits, sea spray and sweet vanilla oak.
Gold Award Winners at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and The Spirits Business Scotch Whisky Masters in 2020.
Net weight: 0.5kg
Nose: Very sweet. Initially, it is all creme 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.
Taste: Sweet start and quite fat and though the alcohol gives a little tongue-tingling buzz the result is a good mid-palate weight. The dry distillery character is there still, but there is now depth to counter. Water slightly dismantles the different elements, but adds some dried mint.
Finish: Deep and dark, with gentle spice and lingering peat smoke.
Glen Scotia Distillery
Glen Scotia is one of the smallest Scotch whisky distilleries in Scotland but one of the big names of Campbeltown. Their lovely distillery still maintains much of its original design, including the mashtun, the stillroom and the dunnage warehouse dating from the 1830s. The last century saw turbulent times for the whisky distillers of Campbeltown, yet their legacy endures.
