Campbeltown is situated by the south end of the Mull of Kintyre; it's an isolated, distinctive place. The whisky produced here is special too - so much so that it’s classified as a separate region, quite apart from the Highland, Speyside, Lowland and Islay whiskies which are perhaps better known today.
With an excellent water supply, easy access to peat and grain and a growing market in Victorian Britain and beyond, little Campbeltown had 28 distilleries by 1851, and proudly proclaimed itself ‘the whisky capital of the world’. Of the three distilleries that remain, Glen Scotia is revered as one of the finest in Scotland.
Each maturation cask used to create Victoriana, is selected for its rare character and quality from age. Barrels are deep with charred oak, helping create an exceptionally smooth single malt whisky. The delectable spirit has equal ratio of aroma to palate intensity. Its traditionally bottled, with no filtration after removal from cask. This means the palate gets its subtle wood and vanilla flavour which pays perfect complement to its full-bodied, spicy, fruit nose. The palate is lovingly rounded off with a hint of silky smoke.
Elegantly oak driven, with toasty notes of caramelised sugar and citrus zest.
More fruit forward than the nose gives away, with dark berry juiciness at its core. Becomes more austere with water.
Clean and sweet at first. A cocoa characteristic leads through the lengthy finish.
