Glen Scotia 25 Year
Glen Scotia // Campbeltown, Scotland
This single malt was released during the 2017 Campbeltown Malts Festival held at the end of May. Glen Scotia is one of three single malt distilleries in Campbeltown which was once a thriving area for whisky production. This 25 year-old whisky was aged in American oak barrels until its final year when it was transferred into first-fill bourbon barrels. Bottled at 48.8% ABV, the whisky is non chill-filtered. It comes in an oak display box with the coordinates to Campbeltown engraved in it.

"A delicious nose boasts earthy/smoky notes, sea breeze, and a full array of spices ranging from cinnamon to ginger and cloves. The palate is light, fruity and sweet delivering notes of herbal honey, maple syrup, toasted bread, marzipan, nuts and citrus. An elegant complexity and a gentle smoky profile, not overpowering the more subtle aromas. The finish is lingering with spices and tropical fruits. "
