The Schtick: This is a independent bottler release of spirit distilled at Glen Scotia and bottled by Samaroli. It was aged for 21 years in sherry cask, and bottled with no coloring and filtering.
Distiller: Glen Scotia
ABV: 45% ABV
Age: 21 Years
Bottle: 177 / 360
Nose: Rich, funky caramel. Pungent, meaty funk. Lots of stewed fruits, fresh baked bread, thick tobacco. The complexity is impressive. Butterscotch candy.
Taste: Medium mouth feel. No heat. Salted caramel chocolate, rich stewed fruits. It’s funky, almost meaty here also. Not as brash as a Port Charlotte, but the peat is well integrated. Pepper, salt, caramel, fresh baked bread. Faint ash and maritime air.
Finish: Short to medium in length, rich and complex. More caramel and butterscotch here. Less peat and smoke than in the palate, with more stewed fruits showing up as well.
Overall: Rich and complex, this was a really great showing from Glen Scotia. Well picked, Samaroli.
