To celebrate the 2023 Campbeltown Malts Festival, Glen Scotia released this treat of a whisky – a lightly peated 11-year-old single malt, finished for 12 months in white Port casks! Not something you see every day, but delicious indeed, brimming with orchard fruit, gentle smoke, and the classic Campbeltown maritime influence.
Nose: Cooked peaches, lemon blossom, spiced apple compote, and just a hint of sea-washed pebble.
Palate: Dark treacle, polished sandalwood, sticky dates, and a gentle whiff of savoury smoke to balance.
Finish: White grape and runny honey sweetness, as well as a touch of clove.
