There are just three whisky distilleries in the small region of Campbeltown, and Glen Scotia is one of them! It’s not just based in the smallest whisky region, it’s also one of the smallest Scotch distilleries, with its coastal location adding a distinctive salinity to its whiskies.
This 18 Year Old release spent its first 17 years in a combination of refill ex-bourbon casks and refill American oak hogsheads. Then, Glen Scotia malt master Iain McAlister vatted the two cask types together in first-fill Oloroso sherry casks for a 12-month finishing period. It’s not unusual for Campbeltown whiskies to showcase some smoke and funk, though you won’t find any of that here – it’s light and creamy, while retaining a rich oiliness and subtle coastal influence.
Oily toasted almond, vanilla orchid, and bundles of dried fruit, with wafts of savoury sea breeze, and chocolate-dipped banana.
Buttercream icing, orange loaf cake, and waxy vanilla, with tobacco, dusty cocoa, and a smidge of seaweed.
Chocolate-coated ginger, raisin and fig sweetness, and hints of salted cookie dough.
