Glen Scotia 12 Year Old Seasonal Release 2021 Description
A seasonal release arriving just in time for the festive season. This single malt from Glen Scotia is a 12 Year Old with bags of spicy, warm, delicious character. Bringing together a series of unpeated distillations from 2009 and earlier, this had a maturation that we are excited to talk about. After eleven years maturation in a combination of first fill bourbon and American oak hogsheads, this single malt was finished for twelve months in first fill Oloroso sherry hogsheads and heavily charred American oak barrels. Then, it was married at cask strength prior to bottling. Some journey! We can’t think of a better dram to toast with this Christmas. No chill filtration has been applied, nor has it had any added colour. At 54.7% abv, this is a perfect winter warmer.
Nose: vanilla ice cream, sea salt, orchard fruits.
Palate: vanilla, demerara sugar, spicy cinnamon, nutmeg.
Finish: nutty, warming, long.
