The final dram of the first week of #WhiskyAdvent… Time to open up window seven of the Drinks by the Dram Whisky Advent Calendar and see what it is!

Why, it’s a Campbeltown malt whisky from Glen Scotia, whose single malt whiskies have received all-new, all-new packaging this year and whose range has also seen a complete overhaul. Out have gone the 10, 12, 16, 18 and 21 year olds (most of which were relatively new themselves) and in come Double Cask, a 15 Year Old and Victoriana. It’s not just the bottlings that have been revamped either, the last year or two have seen upgrades to the stills, three new washbacks, a new spirit safe and the building of a visitor centre at the distillery!

Some whiskies can be said to have a ‘coastal’ or ‘maritime’ character, and invariably these are also whiskies that I absolutely love. In fact, these seaside malts are the reason I became interested in whisky in the first place, and the very best examples are still probably my favourite spirits in the world. This is personal taste, of course, and whilst I love most of the gods’ rich tapestry of whisky flavour profiles, I just happen to be a sucker for the Neptunian ones. So, consider me your Neil Oliver as we embark on a journey of discovery and also consider exactly how is it that some malts seemingly take on the very taste of the coast. This, is whisky on the edge… *Cue music*
