It’s a pure example of Campbelltown single malt craftsmanship in a bottle.

Distilling in the Kintyre Peninsula dates back more than 400 years to 1609. The hamlet of Campbelltown was founded in 1832 and quickly became known as “The Whisky Capital of the World.” The era of Prohibition and the subsequent emergence of Highland single malt dominance ended the reign of Campbelltown. Glen Scotia is a more recent branding by the Loch Lomond Group in an effort to recreate the magic of Campbelltown’s bygone era, and they are doing a darned good job of it too.

Glen Scotia 15 Year Old was only released as an official product last year, but it has already pulled down three gold medals — including a Double-Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The accolades are well-earned, with no marketing spin. This fifteen year old beauty is simple, straight-forward craftsmanship. They take the best pulls of their Campbelltown single malt and let it rest in premium, first-fill, ex-Bourbon casks until its quinceañera and then bottle it at a perfect 46% ABV. If you are a Whisky fan, you don’t need to hear any more than that.

Smartass corner:
When it comes to the major spirits competitions, the top entry in each category is awards a Gold medal by a majority vote of the judges. If all the judges are in perfect agreement and choose the winner by unanimous decree, then the winner receives a Double-Gold.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
