Glen Scotia Double Cask
Glen Scotia Double cask is a new release for late 2015, bottled at 46%. This classic Cambeltown malt is matured in the finest oak barrels then finished in a combination of first fill bourbon barrels followed by time in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks to produce this outstanding malt whisky that provides the perfect balance of rich spicy fruits.
Tasting Notes -
Nose - Amber, very sweet. Initially it is all creme caramel, caramalised 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.
Palate - 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.
Finish - Deep and dark.
