Original Tasting Notes – Double Cask

Die Lagerung erfolgte in American Oak Barrels und anschließend in Pedro Ximenez Casks.

  • NOSE: Amber. 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.
  • PALATE: Sweet start and quite fat and though the alcohol gives a little tongue-tingling buzz the result is a good mid-palate weight. The dry distillery character is there still, but there is now depth to counter. Water slightly dismantles the different elements, but adds some dried mint.
  • FINISH: Deep and dark.

Original Tasting Notes – Victoriana

Mit “Victoriana” gibt es endlich wieder eine fassstarke Originalabfüllung aus dem Hause Glen Scotia. “Finished In Deep Charred Oak Casks” – Durch das Finish in ausgekohlten Fässern erhält diese Edition eine einzigartige Note.

  • NOSE: Dark again. An elegant nose with hints of oak driving the bouquet. Interesting creme brulee notes leading to generous caramelised fruits and finally polished oak.
  • PALATE: Sweet and concentrated start with some jammy blackcurrant fruitiness. A big mid palate. Typical tightening towards the back palate. Becomes more austere with water.
  • FINISH: Clean and initially sweet. Then green bean, with cocoa characteristic.

Original Tasting Notes – 15 Jahre

Der 15jährige Glen Scotia lagerte in American Oak Barrels.

  • NOSE: Richer colours. Broad and medium-weight with citrus peels, ginger snap biscuits. Sweet and with great depth. Apricot aromas develop then drift towards fruit salad. After a short time the wood come to the fore and water helps to release baked fruit.
  • PALATE: A complicated palate where the initial nose would lead you to expect plump fruits, what you get is a surprisingly dry element. The palate fleshes out as the first impact of the nose fades. Adding water brings out the caramalised elements balanced with the wood elements expected of a 15 yr old.
  • FINISH: Firm and slightly dry.
