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.

Glen Scotia Double Cask Reviews

Super bland for a single malt

Not much to smell - perhaps a subtle whiff of wee
Taste is malted barley with a bit of burn.
Short very dry finish
I found this incredibly bland for a single malt. I really wondered what the point was. Highland Park would offer much more for similar money

Well worth it .

FIRST time I sat and had a dram of any Glen Scotia.
It's a fair dram for that sort money.
At 46% it has what is required from a dram . .
Oily and thick too .
It hits the spot .
Well worth it .

Rich and slightly firey without water.

Nose of caramel, sea and smoke. tastes quite peppery and a rich fruity basis.. a bit of smike on tongue too. Its a bit young and firey and a small amount of O2 helps this along nicely. Lots of cinommon and nutmeg in finish even with the water.
Nice dram tho and of its home.. Cambeltown.

Not quite Talisker 10, but darn close

It is an amazing rich whiskey for the price. Reminds me of a tangy Talisker 10. With a bit of buttered bread and fruity taste. Sweet corn, which is why it reminds me of Talisker 10. Just delectable! Not perfect, but darn good!

Easy-going, fruity, salty, sweet beauty

Just opened a sample and am very impressed.
Super-easy drinking, but with plenty of body and power.
The PX finish brings a sweetness that's more fruity than the deep toffee I expect from PX.
(Past Benriach and Blair Athol PX finishes were like glorious toffee apples)
I disagree with a couple of the notes below- there's not a hint of peat and not much fudge, but yes, salted caramel. Reminded me most of Balblair from a few years ago (sweetness and easy-going power)
It's not the most fantastically characterful of drams, but you don't want to be getting down n dirty with Springbank every night, do you?
Highly recommended and RIDICULOUSLY good value

Well banlance

The perfect combination of bourbon and sherry cask
The whisky distillery from Campbelltown is already one of the highlights, with sweetness of various toffee and cream and a mild peat with a lingering finish. Calvin

A great value malt

On the nose it's initially intensely fruity, apples, pears and a little hint of something sharper like grapefruit. There's caramel and brown sugar, big oaky hit from the bourbon barrels and a salty note in the background.
Uncompromising in the mouth, the sherry influence takes over. Deep fudge, toffee and some nuttiness combine with that saltiness again. Salted caramel dessert with a good whack of mixed spice. Lovely stuff.
The finish is a little underwhelming though on this one, it's pleasant and warming, the sherry elements remain, but are gone fairly quickly.
Great value for money, just the finish lets it down.

Great value for money malt.

This is a fantastic value for money malt 🙂

Great starter dram

Really good starter dram, especially for the price. It’s one that I remember too and has got me into more Glen Scotia.

There are better whiskies out there.

Very strange taste which lingers on the back of the tongue. Not often I call a whisky unpleasant but this certainly fills the bill.
