Glen Scotia Double Cask Scotch

Your Price: $69.95
Glen Scotia Double Cask Scotch whisky is a wonderfully easy-drinking Campbeltown Single Malt whisky with tastes of toffee, salted caramel and a sweet dry sherry finish. Aged in bourbon barrels before being finished in PX sherry casks, this expression provides the perfect balance of rich spicy fruits, sea spray and sweet vanilla oak. AWARD WINNING WHISKY When it comes to whisky, double cask offers a robust flavour profile that makes it a truly sensational sipping experience. Matured in the finest first-fill American oak barrels before being finished for up to 12 months in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. This outstanding single malt whisky 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. TASTING NOTES NOSE 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. TASTE Sweet start and quite fat. Though the alcohol gives a little tongue-tingling buzz, the result is a good mid-palate weight. The dry distillery character is still there, but there is now depth to counter. Water slightly dismantles the different elements but adds some dried mint. FINISH Deep and dark, with gentle spice and lingering peat smoke.

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 lyne arms.

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.
