Glen Scotia Double Cask Bottling Note

Ooh, looks like the Glen Scotia range has had a bit of a redesign! They've gone for quite a classic, refined design this time, and have even introduced a selection of new expressions, including the Glen Scotia Double Cask! This Campbeltown single malt is finished in a combination of first-fill bourbon barrels and Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Vibrant fruit emerges first (peach flesh and green apple peels), followed by chewy vanilla fudge, a hint of salinity, then an array of oak-y spices including some char.

Palate: Opens with more fudge with a little dusting of powdered sugar. Powerful, oily and a touch herbaceous with some German brandy character.

Finish: Sherried notes come through more on the finish.

Reviews for Glen Scotia Double Cask
Run and Raisin
I’m not sure about all of these reviews that bang on about the nose, earthy, etc. all you need to know is it tastes lovely. I have a sweet tooth generally and there’s a rich flavour of sherry and raisins: it’s not far off a whisky version of rum and raisin ice cream if you ask me. Regardless, there was no bitterness and a double measure lasted an age as i savoured it. Mega smooth. Best whisky I’ve ever tasted. it blows any of the Jura into next year. Taste is subjective but love this.

Dark sweetness
I tried this alongside the Glenkinchie and the Tamadhu, and this one came up tops, marginally.

It was very similar to the Tamadhu, but I could get more notes out of this. Completely different to the Glenkinchie, which was just too peaty/mossy/coppery for me.

For this on the nose, it was just absolutely fresh with citrus and grapfruit coming through - think 4711!

On the tongue, salted caramel up front, an earthy body and a sweet but hot cinnamon finish.

After opening up with a drop of water, more burnt or darker toffee came through, with white flowers on the nose and a smokey finish.

Tamadhu 12 - I gave 6/10
Glenkinchie 12 - 7/10
This - 7.5/10

Great value, solid flavour profile
I prefer a whisky that's chewy, salty or smoky. This has a defined marine flavour, tempered by the sherry and oak for added complexity. A respectable cousin to Springbank which has become as rare as hens teeth of late.

Exceptional value malt, clear Sherry influence with a nice kick of peat in the background

Bland and forgetable
To be honest, this doesn't taste of much. Drinkable yet forgetable.
If it was priced like Loch Lomond Original, I wouldn't mind, but it's priced like Inchmurrin, and that's a much more flavourful dram.
Thought the 15 would do the business, but really wasn't impressed. Much prefer Longrow and Kilkerran of the Campbeltowns

lovely oaks
I was pleasantly surprised by this for the money, it is my intro to the distillery, but I am definitely going to look at the 15 or the victoriana now - as I could quite easily daily drink this

Ok but nowt to write home about
A bit of a disappointment, this one. It’s harsh tasting without any of the redeeming features you’d find across the water on Islay. At the same time it’s a bit generic, a little nondescript. Look, it’s s decent single malt so it’s ok. But in the pantheon of Scotch it’s nothing special. I’ll certainly finish the bottle but I won’t buy another one.

Not what I remember.
I had this one a few years ago, and always wanted another bottle as it left a great impression. Got one for Christmas 2021, and it has an odd sour flavor. I shared some with a friend, and we both looked at each other with a strange face. I'm really disappointed that it doesn't come anywhere near the memory ...
