Released as part of the brand's relaunch in 2015, Glen Scotia 15 Year Old is matured in bourbon barrels. This has notes of ginger, vanilla, sea spray and spice.Tasting Notes (1)
Glen Scotia 15 Year Old
Broad and medium-weight with citrus peels, ginger snap biscuits. Sweet and with great depth. Apricot aromas develop then drift towards fruit salad. After a short time the wood come to the fore and water helps to release baked fruit.
A complicated palate where the initial nose would lead you to expect plump fruits, what you get is a surprisingly dry element. The palate fleshes out as the first impact of the nose fades. Adding water brings out the caramelised elements balanced with the wood elements expected of a 15 year old.
Firm and slightly dry.

Overachieving distillery, certainly. The quality casking generates a superior integration of spirit. Nose is unashamedly nutty and rife with vanillin and lemon peel oils. Palate is rich and oily. Unctuous. Supercharged nuts are laced with a petticoat of oily lemon rind. Not shy on ginger. Quite spicy. Has been called "resinous" by master tasters. Dry. Hint of peat in background. Best with 1/4 teaspoon of water after letting nectar evolve in glass for 15-20 minutes. A show-stopper which takes a certain amount of experience to understand. A beauty. Maybe not for beginners who may be better introduced to Campbeltown with say, the Kilkerran 12.
Superb! If you’re not obsessed with Islay smoke, you might love this. It does remind me slightly of Benromach but more complex. Well balanced, toffee, wood, dried fruit, hint of ginger and vanilla. Spicy wood. I’m going to buy another bottle before this one is finished. Well worth the price.
Complex, mellow whisky showing good maturation with plenty of spice and a touch of brine. Lashings of oak too. If you like the taste of oak you’ll love this. If you don’t try their Double Cask instead, I prefer that.
Dangerously quaffable! Excellent mouthfeel and balance. Salty creamy fudge and enticing spice. Scotch heaven.
