Initially aged in American oak casks and treated to a finishing period in Oloroso sherry casks, this is a delicious 18 year old single malt from the Glen Scotia Distillery in Campbeltown. Shows off a good balance between fruity sweetness and classic Campbeltown salinity. Lovely golden presentation box to match the whisky's handsome golden hue, too. That's style.
Nose: Honey, vanilla, sultanas drizzled with old rum, wafts of sea breeze and a touch of cherry.
Palate: Citrus peels (both orange and lemon) lead into more dried fruit sweetness. Salted caramel, mature oak and some black tea richness.
Finish: Ginger, milk chocolate, oatcakes and raisin.
