Glen Scotia 15YO Bottling Note

This is the 15 year old single malt Scotch whisky from Glen Scotia in the Campbeltown region, released in 2015 as part of a redesign for their range. The distillers use specially selected American oak casks to age this expression, which compliment the fruit-forward and subtly coastal whisky rather well.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Lots of rich fruit here - apricot jam, satsuma segments and apple pie. Wafts of sea breeze and baking spices develop after a minute.

Palate: Vanilla and fruit, with ginger and cinnamon bring a subtle dryness to it.

Finish: Quite long with continuing spice.

Glen Scotia 15 Year Old Reviews


Like drinking velvet. My favorite scotch.

14th September 2020

Very disappointing.

I did a tasting of this aside the Dalmore 15. Lots of similarities, the most important being that neither are actually very good and worth the extra price ove the ever-awesome Glenfiddich 15, which - with the more whiskies I try - makes me wonder if anything will ever get close to it in terms of bang-for-buck. The Glenfiddich is smoother, tastier and better in every conceivable way in a like-for-like basis.

Worth the cost

Very nice. Added to my favourite list.

For the price you are on High St Edinburgh!

A draum needs a drop of water to bring out its magic. Long finish with cinnamon and spice.
This is why you sip scotch.

Boom! Absolutely delightful.

Ho hum

Although there's not much wrong with this whisky it is rather unremarkable given its heftyish price tag. I managed to pick up a bottle that was heavily discounted. I wouldn't have been too happy if I paid full price for it. The oak flavours dominate here, giving it an almost bourbon vibe. I'm guessing they used plenty of first fill casks. There is dried fruit sweetness there, but it's not as clean as I would have liked with just a tiny bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is decent. I like to add a dash of Ardbeg or Lagavulin 8 to this to liven it up a bit and cover up that bitterness.

Quit tasty and reasonably priced for a 15 year old

Not sure I get the apricot jam mentioned above, but noticeable vanilla at first, then jammy like fruit flavors in the middle, with baked goods flavors in the finish. Some rye-like spicy flavors are detectable that are hard to identify exactly, but they’re pleasant. Very smooth throughout. A very nice Glen Scotia and at a relatively modest price for a 15 year old.

A modern masterpiece

I pray Glen Scotia do not go the way of other distilleries that gain/regain reputation then double their prices. This may not be the cheapest 15 on the market, but it's one of the most complex and accomplished, an absolute bouquet of flavours and robust to all ends.

Cambridge Whisky Nut Says:

At first didn't get what the hoopla was all about, but now, omg. Let this sit in the glass 15-20 min, put a little water in it, and boom. Brine, Sultana, honey, rich toffeed Campbeltown smell and taste. A real masterpiece of an official bottling. Splendid whisky.

Merry Christmas from the Sugarbear!

Well it's Christmas so I have to drink a few nice single malts and do at least one review as is tradition. This is an amazing after dinner dram I just ate a piece of prime rib the size of my head ( which is quite large) and I couldn't have picked a better whisky to wash it down with. The chaps at M.O.M got it just right incredibly juicy with loads of different dark fruits and cinnamon ,good length on the finish and incredibly smooth. Can't really think of a whisky from Campbeltown I didn't like but this is certainly one of the best and I actually got it for a decent price for once. Merry Christmas everyone! The Sugarbear

Second Campeltown Homerun

Just wanted to add to my first review (Oct 21st 2017) that I'm upgrading my rating to 5 stars. On the second bottle now, keep coming back to it.

First Taste Was Great!!

I'm decidedly NOT an expert. But, I thoroughly loved it! On advice from my much younger niece, to whom I'd given a small sample bottle. On my nose I got the scents of dark fruit, salt, slight musty oakey smell. On my tongue and palate I sensed honey, pepper(!) very light on the tongue, and again the slight musty/oakey smell. Aftertaste to me was of medium length, only then some peaty, light smokey taste. I found it overall delicious for the price. Ordered two more 750 ml bottles for myself and one or my niece!!

Another belter from Glen Scotia.

Agree with Campbelltown Home Run. There is smoke from the syringol aldehyde released by the lignins after heavy charring. Otherwise the tasting notes by MoM are exactly what I experienced.
Small distilleries often take more care and pride in flavour profile than wide profit margins which the large drinks companies do.

Campbeltown Homerun

A really nice, well integrated whisky. A 'rounded' experience if that makes sense. The MoM chaps did a good job on the tasting notes, but I'm surprised that they didn't picknick up the subtle smoke throughout the experience. 4 out of 5 because I tend to like me' Whisky to have a(n even) more distinct character. While I feel this Glen Scotia should cost 10% less, I might need to get my hands on more bottles.

My new favourite

My favourite single malt! Beautifully smooth with a refined complexity. The downside is, I have to keep it hidden!

7th August 2017

Brilliant touch

Great whisky, tasty and long oily finish,

The Barbour lovers Scotch!

A Gentleman of whisky

whisky like the human race is full of variety no two are ever quite the same I think true whisky appreciation loves variety...I have yet to find a scotch that I didnt find something to like about it amongst the Scottish single malts,The Glen Scotia 15 is a one that I highly rate and am looking forward to further Campbeltown whiskies

8th April 2017

Excellent whisky

After reading a review of Glenscotia where the reviewer recommended to try the 15 or the double cask to get a taste of the campbeltown aspects (sea breeze), I picked this one.
Quite spicy, fruity & complex with a long finish. Dry fruits. The typical salty seabreeze exists but more elegant. Very elegant and rich (spicy & fruity) whisky.

16th January 2017


Tasted with friends during our quarterly whisky night. Rated highly by all, one of the top ones we've had over the past 4 years. Very balanced, with depth and interest. Was a while ago (July), so tasting notes are in the archive. I recommend getting some and trying it for yourselves.

11th October 2016

What's not to love?

Quite mellow and not too punchy, with a good depth of flavours. I got soft orchard fruit (plums and apricots?), a touch of toffee, some nuttiness, a pleasant, woody spice and last of all, drunk.

29th July 2016


A very tasty, rich whisky with a long finish/Really loved it.
