NOSE: Richer colours. Broad and medium-weight with citrus peels, ginger snap biscuits. Sweet and with great depth. Apricot aromas develop then drift towards fruit salad. After a short time the wood come to the fore and water helps to release baked fruit.
PALATE: A complicated palate where the initial nose would lead you to expect plump fruits, what you get is a surprisingly dry element. The palate fleshes out as the first impact of the nose fades. Adding water brings out the caramalised elements balanced with the wood elements expected of a 15 year old.
FINISH: firm and slightly dry.
Glen Scotia is one of only three distilleries in Campbeltown, which in 1851 was the whisky capital of the world. Classified as a separate region, the whiskies made here are very different from the Highland, Speyside, Lowland and Islay and the whiskies of Glen Scotia are a fine example of this of historic style.
