    PATIENCE ISN’T JUST A VIRTUE, IT’S AN INGREDIENT-TIME HONOURED

    Gs June (1)

    Brian and the team are delighted to be working with the good people at Glen Scotia Distillery this month, and look forward to offering their guests the multi award-winning single malt Glen Scotia Double Cask.
    Founded in 1832, Glen Scotia is one of only 3 distilleries producing in Campbeltown, with a style that is distinct to the area. Glen Scotia distils both peated and non-peated single malt.

    Glen Scotia Double Cask

    The whisky is finished in a combination of first fill bourbon barrels followed by time in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks to produce this outstanding malt whisky that provides the perfect balance of rich spicy fruits, overlaid with the characteristic sea spray and vanilla oak finish for which the house of Glen Scotia is famous.

    NOSE

    Amber. Very sweet. Initially it is all creme caramel, caramelised fruit sugars, wood sugar, toffee and fudge before some apple and peach come through. In time a charred note of bourbon with a pleasing dusty dryness. Has some power.

    PALATE

    Sweet start and quite fat and though the alcohol gives a little tongue-tingling buzz the result is a good mid-palate weight. The dry distillery character is there still, but there is now depth to counter. Water slightly dismantles the different elements, but adds some dried mint.

    FINISH

    Deep and dark.
