Glen Scotia 15 Year Old Review

Today the Campbeltown festival starts and with it a hectic and busy two weeks full of distilleries activities highlighted by Feis Ile 2016 on Islay. It all starts with Glen Scotia open day in Campbeltown and I have a Glen Scotia review for the occasion.

Glen Scotia 15 Year Old is a recent release that was released in 2015 as part of the brand re-launch, matured in ex-bourbon casks and bottled at 46%.

Glen Scotia 15 Year Old (46%, £55.45/€57.50)

glen scotia 15 year oldNose:  Concentrated sweet fruit, very jammy. Red apples, oranges, vanilla, nuts, ginger spice and cinnamon, After a while in the glass there are canned apricots, salty water along with some background dryness but not everything is rosy here – it feels thin and lacking substance.

Palate: Nutty with spices, cinnamon, ginger and pepper. salt and sweet oranges, oak spices with gentle dryness.

Finish: Short medium length, lingering sweet fruit and heavy dose of oak spices.

Thoughts: Decent and aromatic dram albeit it’s being downgraded in my book due to the fact it lacks substance and feels thin. Happy Glen Scotia Day to you all!
