Glen Scotia Double Cask Single Malt Scotch
Our double cask is matured in our finest oak barrels then finished in a combination of first-fill bourbon barrels followed by time in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks to produce this outstanding malt whisky that 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.
Ooh, looks like the Glen Scotia range has had a bit of a redesign! They’ve gone for quite a classic, refined design this time, and have even introduced a selection of new expressions, including the Glen Scotia Double Cask! This Campbeltown single malt is finished in a combination of first-fill bourbon barrels and Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks.
Glen Scotia Double Cask starts its life in first-fill bourbon barrels, before being finished in Pedro-Ximenez-sherry casks. Notes of spicy fruit and vanilla.
Glen Scotia, one of the two remaining Campbeltown distilleries, is known for a house character that involves mild peat, an oily mouthfeel, and some variant of lemon peel notes. It’s hard to have a conversation about Glen Scotia without someone redirecting the topic to Springbank, which everyone just sort of agrees is better in every way.
Vibrant fruit emerges first, followed by chewy vanilla fudge, a hint of salinity, then an array of oak-y spices including some char.
Opens with more fudge with a little dusting of powdered sugar. Powerful, oily, and a touch herbaceous with some German brandy character.
Sherried notes come through more on the finish.
