Glen Scotia / Double Cask.

COUNTRY/REGION: Scotland/Campletown.

CATEGORY: Single Malt.

DISTILLERY: Glen Scotia.

BOTTLER: Distillery Bottling.

BOTTLED: 2016

CASK TYPE: 1st Fill Bourbon & Pedro Ximénez Sherry Casks.

STRENGTH: 46.0 % Vol.

The Double Cask is matured in the finest first fill bourbon barrels before being finished for up to twelve months in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks producing this outstanding single malt whisky that provides the perfect balance of rich spicy fruits, overlaid with the characteristic sea spray and vanilla oak finish for which the house of Glen Scotia is famous.

NOSE: Amber. Very sweet. Initially it is all creme caramel, caramelised fruit sugars, wood sugar, toffee and fudge before some apple and peach come through. In time a charred note of bourbon with a pleasing dusty dryness. Has some power.

PALATE: Sweet start and quite fat and though the alcohol gives a little tongue-tingling buzz the result is a good mid-palate weight. The dry distillery character is there still, but there is now depth to counter. Water slightly dismantles the different elements, but adds some dried mint.

FINISH: Deep and dark.
