Glen Scotia Review

Day 22 of the Kensington Wine Market Whisky Advent Calendar is a Cask Strength expression from Glen Scotia Distillery from the Campbeltown region of Scotland.

One of my favourite drams of the Calendar so far, this whisky comes casks hand selected by their master blender and finished in heavily charred oak barrels.

Bottled at 54.2% ABV.

Nose: Dirty oak, peaches, caramelized brown sugar, lemon furniture polish on an old church pew, coke bottle gummy candies.

Palate: Orchard fruit, berries and dark chocolate.

Finish: Licorice All Sorts, more orchard fruit and chocolate leaving a wonderfully chalky mouth feel.

Rating: 9.3/10

I feel Campbeltown whiskies are one of Scotland’s best kept secrets.  If you haven’t explored these fantastic distilleries I highly recommend giving them a chance!
