This single malt from Glen Scotia is matured in specially selection American oak ex-bourbon barrels for 15 years before bottling. This creates layers of ginger, vanilla, sea spray and baking spice throughout the palate.Tasting Notes (1)
Glen Scotia 15 Year Old won a silver medal in the prestigious 2020 World Spirits Competition in San Francisco. The competition is renowned for its high standards, and not only did all of Glen Scotia’s entries win medals but Glen Scotia 25 Year Old was awarded a platinum medal, signifying that it had been awarded the top-flight double-gold medal at the competition for three years running.
Founded in 1832, Glen Scotia has established itself as one of Campbeltown’s best producers and helped the region become one of Scotland’s whisky-producing giants. Soon after Glen Scotia was founded there was a boom of whisky production in the town, and in 1835 it was one of 29 distilleries operating in Campbeltown. However, what goes up must come down, and by 1929 only three distilleries were left, Glen Scotia among them. It’s had a few brief closures since then, but today Glen Scotia remains not only operational but a much-loved bastion of the region’s classic style.
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.

Oh my. As a long-time whisky drinker I have loved Springbank for more that40 years and Campbeltown has been right up there for me as a single malt region. Never really thought about Glen Scotia until a friend introduced me to it. I have wasted years - this is a gorgeous dram. Didn’t know much about it but spotted it in my friend’s whisky cabinet the other evening and thought “Why should he have all the fun?”. Went out today and bought a bottle. Absolutely delightful. I could not quite place why I Ioved the flavour so much. Then I researched it and discovered it has spent 15 years in an ex-bourbon cask (I love bourbon). Explains a lot. Highly recommended.
Lacking any distinctive characteristics and what's there isn't particularly good. Finish is poor. The nose is solid, the only thing keeping this from a one star review. One of the worst options on the market at that price point.
I bought this after watching a good review. I did not enjoy it. The whisky had a flavour which i couldn't place
First bottle I have tried but will not be the last, I can't comment on the nose & palate etc but can say that it is a very tasty dram, personally I prefer this to Springbank
My lovely wife got me this for my birthday this year. wow really really nice. one of the nices whisky's I have tried recently. will buy again. must try the 18 year old
