Glen Scotia Double Cask is a classic Campbeltown malt with a great history of whiskey since 1832. The whiskey is finished in a combination of new bourbon barrels, with after a while Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, the combination creates this remarkable malt whiskey, with a perfect balance of full spicy fruit, under a layer of typical sea spray and the like vanilla oak finish where Glen Scotia is famous for.

Nose:
Amber. Very sweet. At first it's all creme caramel, caramelized fruit sugars, wood sugar, toffee and fudge, before coming through some apple and peach. Over time, a smoky tone of bourbon with a pleasant dusty dryness. That's what powerful.

Taste:
Sweet start, rather fat and although the alcohol creates a buzz with tingling on the tongue, the result is a good weight of the middle range. The dry distillate character is still there, but there is some depth at. Water show some more different elements, but also add dried mint.

finish:
Deep and dark.
