Glen Scotia's Whisky Highlights

CAMPBELTOWN Glen Scotia brings two luxury single malt Scotch whiskies for the connoisseur’s Christmas wish list. Sat Bal 

Glen Scotia 45 Year Old leads the charge at £3,800 an exclusive single malt limited to 150 bottles worldwide. Each bottle comes in a handcrafted walnut presentation featuring a delicate tile that’s engraved with the individual bottle number and tasting notes.

At 43.8% ABV the notes are:

Nose-

Bold coastal elements, sea-soaked basalt leads into thick fruit of ripe pineapple and crisp green apple before floral notes of rose, vanilla and toasted oak come through.

Taste-

Viscous oily mouthfeel coats the tongue. Caramel sweetness at first then juicy tropical fruit, with pineapple, mango and watermelon rounded by vanilla and honey.

Finish-

Long mouth-watering finish with sea-salt and lime citrus before warming cinnamon and ground ginger spice.

Distilled in 1973, the whisky matured in refill bourbon casks for over three decades before being finished in first fill bourbon under the watchful eye of master distiller, Michael Henry until bottling in 2019.

Next from Campbeltown distillery, ‘the whisky capital of the world’ is the Glen Scotia 25 Year Old at £275 a bottle.

Think seaside tang, orange and juicy red apples and caramel sweetness. The nose has hints of vanilla oak, with the subtle notes of sea spray and spicy aromatic fruits.

Glen Scotia 25 Year Old has been recognised for its distinctive flavours across the globe, scooping a Double Gold medal at the prestigious 2019 San Francisco Spirits Competition.
