This wonderfully peated Glen Scotia single malt was matured in refill American oak hogsheads delivering a gentle sweet peat smoke with citrus and subtle spice as is the character of Glen Scotia distillery. These casks are then vatted together and finished in demerara rum barrels for eight months bringing a soft, melted brown sugar sweetness that compliments the peat smoke.
Bottled to celebrate the Campbeltown Malts Festival 2019
Opens on a gentle sweet peat smoke, then citrus notes of lemon peel and pineapple juice. There is some vanilla syrup and pepper grinds with cinnamon and ginger spice to finish.
The WSD think it is very sweet on the nose, rum and raisin fudge with the finest hint of smoke. Very fruity. The taste is soft and fruity with oranges covered in fajita spices. Nectarines and golden plums. (V)
