Insider knowledge: Glen Scotia 18 Year Old 1992 - Old Malt Cask (Douglas Laing) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Glen Scotia 18 Year Old 1992 - Old Malt Cask (Douglas Laing) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Caramelised peels and rich spices, soft oak and butterscotch.
Palate: Full and malty with a big whack of gripping sherry notes, apple peels and baked pear with nectarine sultanas and burnt sugar.
Finish: Long and spiced, candy floss.
