The Glen Scotia distillery is back on the road to glory with several new releases which show this is no poor relation to its premier league neighbour, Springbank. Glen Scotia recently underwent a dramatic transformation in both whisky and design, and now it’s happened again.
This time, they have gone back to a more classic design (the last design was….well, an acquired taste), but the whisky is superb. This is matured in a combination of bourbon and Pedro Ximenez casks. We’ll hopefully be seeing a lot more (and a lot more consistency) from Glen Scotia.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Rich and biscuity. Salted caramels. Spicy. Apple pie.
Palate: Creamy, spicy and smooth. Toffee and bitter dark chocolate. Apricot jam. More cream at the finish.
Retails for around £35-40
