Tasting Notes

"The Glen Scotia Victoriana is rather fruity and slightly floral, with a nice oiliness to boot and just a whiff of furniture polish. The palate is darker than expected and certainly much more spicier than the nose suggests. It's funky with notes of charred oak, a soft saline quality and a touch of vegetal peat. Clearly this is about heavy oak maturation—but done very well."
