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, bottles and boxes are decorated with the image of long-haired Scottish cow (Highland Cow on Islay) – it looks nice and certainly catches the eye by identifying products from Glen Scotia. There are two stills in the distillery.

I hadn’t had experience with single malts from Glen Scotia so I decided to start with 10 years old version. Also in this case, the color is natural, 46% ABV and unchillfiltered.

K: light gold,

N: fresh, orange, toffi, vanilla, flowers, a hint of plums cake, with the addiction of water a lime emerges, ripe orange is gaining importance, candied orange, peach, vanilla, nice refreshing nose, sometimes with more water there is even champagne note,

T: quite sharp and then something like peaches, pineapple, passing in a little chocolate, sweet with a touch of espresso, when you add a little water – lemon,

F: rather long with a mild bitterness and a hint of cocoa.

Score: 83.

Interesting representative of Campbeltown, it is relatively little available on the market. It shows the nature of aging in bourbon casks. I like the smell of the different versions of oranges, especially when water is added. Even with adding to much water, what happened to me, there are unexpected reactions, I mean the smell of champagne – it’s worth a try.

      W Glen Scotii ostatnio sporo zmian i eksperymentów. Przykładowo ta 10 i opisana w innym poście 10 nie są już oficjalnie oferowane przez producenta. Pozdrowienia.
