Glen Scotia

Glen Scotia Campbeltown 1832
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A real tropical fruit bomb of a whisky. Lots to like and savour here if you like things on the sweeter side.

Glen Scotia Victoriana
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.50%
8 At 51.5% ABV a drop or two of water is needed to open up and soften what is otherwise quite a full-on whisky.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glen Scotia Double Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 If from the distillery I think this is from, then it has seriously upped it's game.

Scotch Malt Whisky Society 93.33 Glen Scotia Pine sap and black pepper 1992 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 64.30%
6 Like Dr Jekyll it's trying to escape from its alter ego,but Hyde wins out.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Chieftain's Choice Glen Scotia 1974 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 42.20%
8 What a lovely nectar. Great fruit and cream combination.

Dewar Rattray Glen Scotia 17 Years Old 1992
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90%
7 I had a suspicion at first nose. Then it seemed to open on rich aromas. But the palate unfortunately confirmed my apprehension. Can't see the point in drinking wood!

Gordon & MacPhail Glen Scotia 1992 Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 62.10%
7 Far from the best Glen Scotia, but I have always entertained a sneaky respect for this distillery.
