Glen Scotia 10 Year Old Peated Single Malt Scotch
Made with peat from North-East Scotland and matured in
first fill bourbon barrels to reach the subltly smokey and maritime character
of Glen Scotia 10 year old Peated.
It is a perfectly balanced single malt with smouldering
peat with briny influence, baked apple and cloves on the nose and flavors of
lemon, vanilla syrup and fresh cut barley on the palate. It has a long and
drying finish with gentle, sweet peat notes and black pepper.
Campbeltown is a small town on the west coast of
Scotland. It was once home to over thirty distilleries in the Victorian Era.
Now only 3 distilleries have survived through to the present day.
Situated in the heart of Campbeltown, Glen Scotia is one
of the smallest distilleries in Scotland. The Scotch distillery was founded by
the Galbraith family in 1832. In 2014, the petite facility was purchased by the
Loch Lomond Group. The distillery is quite small scale, outfitted with two
12,000 and 16,000-liter stills, with distinctive onion shapes and horizontal
Glen Scotia’s line-up showcases their versatility, as they produced a range of
peated and non-peated whiskies, two styles characteristic of Campbelltown, once
known as the "whisky making capitol". Their malt is sourced from
eastern Scotland, and crafted in open-topped, cast iron mash tuns, and their
whiskies are processed with a variation in fermentation time yielding either
nuttier, or fruitier malts. Their small-batch distillation process still
maintains much of the original equipment designs dating back to the 1830s.
