Glen Scotia 15 yr old, 46%, Single Malt Scotch Whisky

700 ml, 46.0% abv, Scotland, (Campbeltown)

This 15 year old expression is an exceptional single malt whisky produced from specially selected casks that deliver the true character of a 15 year old Campbeltown malt whisky. Matured in American oak barrels before being bottled at 46% abv, Non-chill filtered.

“The signature nose has hints of vanilla oak, interwoven with the subtle notes of sea spray and spicy aromatic fruits”

 

Description

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 yr old.

FINISH : Firm and slightly dry.
