Casks #220/234. A 16-year old cask strength bottling of the hard-to-find Campbeltown malt.
This bottle scooped Whisky Magazine's 2010 Independent Bottlers Challenge Gold Award.
Nose of dark toffee, violets and brine with the succulence cut by distant smoke and air dried ham as hints of carbolic soap drift through. An unctuous and jammy palate delivers some late summer fruit and stewed prunes which mingle with cinnamon, cloves and oak on a lingering finish.
Glen Scotia Distillery was established in 1832 in Campbeltown at the foot of the Kintyre Peninsular on the west coast of Scotland. Situated on the south side of Campbeltown’s High Street beside Lochrin Distillery and Dalintober Distillery where their rear walls were lapped by the tides of Campbeltown Loch. Glen Scotia Distillery is now one of only three whisky distilleries in Campbeltown where a further thirty have come and gone. Glen Scotia Distillery produces peated and un-peated malt whisky for an expanding range of Glen Scotia single malt whiskies.
