Review #215 – Glen Scotia 15 Year
Whiskey Network Review #215 | /r/Scotch Review #83: Glen Scotia 15 Year, 92pf
Nose: Doughy yeasty baking sweets, vanilla, toffee and cloves and cinnamon. Kind of an oatmeal note. Mild smoke char, salted caramel is really heavy. Smells very inviting
Taste: Mild smoke and char. Burnt brown sugar. More doughy malty sweetness and a whole lot of toffee. More salted caramel follows. I’m really enjoying this and the mouth feel is good even for the proof.
Finish: Medium but gentle. Well blended and sweet with good char notes mixed in.
Overall: I really enjoyed this dram and I chugged (not literally) through my third of the bottle dangerously fast. I think it maybe lasted two weeks. It is well rounded and hits a lot of notes I like. The oatmeal and salted caramel notes were also a neat new niche. It’s a little pricey at $99 a bottle but certainly not unreasonable. It didn’t blow me away but I thoroughly enjoyed this. For this reason, I’m rating Glen Scotia 15 a 6 – definitely a cut above.
Thanks for reading!
