Description

Begin by observing the whisky's color and clarity, inhaling its aromas, and taking a small sip to experience its initial character. Double Cask is matured in the finest first fill bourbon barrels before being finished for up to twelve months in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks producing this outstanding single malt whisky that provides the perfect balance of rich spicy fruits, overlaid with the characteristic sea spray and vanilla oak finish for which the house of Glen Scotia is famous. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

In addition to their core range, they have also released a selection of more unique bottlings, such as the Double Cask Rum Finish and Cask Strength 12 Year Old Seasonal Release . Glen Scotia Double Cask is a superb introduction into the Glen Scotia range for whisky explorers and a nod to the history of Campbeltown harbour, bringing in exotic casks and goods from around the world. Both tulip-shaped glasses, such as Glencairn glasses, and traditional Copita glasses are excellent choices.Don't worry about the lack of age statement - I am by no means an expert, but would guesstimate that this is made from barrels aged for around 8 years, as there's very little of the raw youthful tang of alcohol spirit and wood juice even at 46% ABV. Initially it is all creme caramel, caramelised fruit sugars, wood sugar, toffee and fudge before some apple and peach come through. Since then it has changed hands several times,including a spell of ownership in the 1950s by Hiram Walker (who also owned Scapa). Embark on a journey through the heart of Campbeltown's single malt whisky heritage with our exquisite whisky miniatures gift sets.

Amber in colour, the nose is initially very sweet, showing creme caramel, caramelised fruit sugars, wood sugar, toffee and fudge before some apple and peach come through. We recommend that you do not rely solely on the information presented here and that you always read labels, warnings, and directions before using or consuming a product. A gentle smoke can be found on the nose, with soft peach, green apple slices, toffee and creamy vanilla custard on the palate.Added to this is a distinct fresh woodsy tang from bourbon barrels, and a definite cocoa-y sweetness from the sherry casks too, especially noticeable on the finish. For a comprehensive experience, consider referring to official tasting notes or watching accompanying tasting videos.
