SMWS 93.52 Glen Scotia i 33.131 Ardbeg


W Warszawskiej Pijalni Whisky […]

Some time ago, having a free evening in the capital city, I went to the Warszawska Pijalnia Whisky to try a single cask from Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS). About the Society I wrote in the post of SMWS 73.35 - Aultmore. Here are also SMWS 4.151 - Highland Park, 19.48 - Glen Garioch, 93.38 Glen Scotia on the blog. It was my first visit to Warszawska Pijalnia Whisky. The place is open to 2200, which is probably unusual for whisky pump room. Inside is not particularly cozy. But the service was very sympathetic. Most importantly, they have single malts from SMWS, but the choice is rather modest, basically a couple of bottles available. Plus a few from other manufacturers. I started with SMWS 93.52, Wench with a wrench – Glen Scotia. 58,4%, 9 years old, refill ex-bourbon barrel. Obviously single cask, cask strength and natural colour. C: white wine, straw; N: at the beginning a fresh blast of alcohol, as it breathes, it gets sweet, vanilla, with caramel, toffee, then peach and apricot, white chocolate, and after a while again, gently teases the nose; here is a flagship scent of vanilla from white American oak, which is characteristic for aging in bourbon barrels, after a certain amount of water it softens, becomes creamy vanilla, somewhere in in the distance I have traces of smoke, burnt sugar, used motor oil and a bit of ash; T: big, almost numbing sparks on the tongue, right here is a lot of vanilla, fudge and toffee, and for the moment I have even a bit of peat and ash, somewhere between shyly emerges peach and pear, after a certain amount of water, milk chocolate and a lot of bitterness; F: quite long with a slight bitterness, traces of dried apricot and orange peel. Score: 85.

    this time adult representative of Campbeltown

    Previously I tasted Campbeltown single malt from Glen Scotia. It was a 10 year old version, now its the turn for her sister, in the age of majority. I wonder how the additional eight years affected the tasting experience. Of course, not quite a literal and precise comparison test, as I do not know whether in the manufacturing process there were some significant changes.

    new expression from Campbeltown Region

    [caption id=attachment_2027 align=alignnone width=801] Glen Scotia 10 years old[/caption] Glen Scotia is next, after Springbank, distillery from Campbeltown Region that I write about on my blog. The distillery was established in 1832 and for many years has remained in the shadow of its larger neighbor. Today, people from Glen Scotia would like to change this situation. Taken assumptions are correct, as the new issues are 46% ABV, bottled natural color and unchillfiltered. In addition,...
