Back to the future with a new Campbeltown winner.

Distilling in the Kintyre Peninsula dates back more than 400 years to 1609. The hamlet of Campbeltown 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 Campbeltown. Glen Scotia is a more recent branding by the Loch Lomond Group in an effort to recreate the magic of Campbeltown’s bygone era.

Glen Scotia Double Cask is a classic Campbeltown Single Malt that ages first in first-fill ex-Bourbon Barrels and is finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. This particular Whisky passes the taste bud test and is winning all kinds of awards — including a gold medals at the San Francisco Spirits Competition and at this year’s World Whisky Awards.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Mathew
Mathew,
Hints of peat and grass. Big kick of spice and alcohol at the start. Underlying sweetness build to a cool finish. Smells medicinal. It’s really not my favorite.

Szymon,
Really soft and light, fruity, with not too long but nice, sherry finish. Not any spiced or feeling alcohol. Recommend to chill with friends and enjoy evenings.
 
Michael
Michael,
Had never experienced a Campbeltown before but will definitely recommend from now on. Almost as good as an Islay.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Not what I was expecting. The tasting notes listed by Flaviar are off. I get peat and smoke. There is a sweetness present. Not bad.

Malt with a hint of peat on the nose. Earthy and grassy. Salt and peat on the pallet, developing hints of fudge. Aftertaste is woody with lingering smoke on the back. On subsequent sips, hints of caramel and Sherry. A few drops of water opens more caramel flavors and tones down the peat. Hints of fresh fruit start to appear. Overall smooth and pleasant with nice aftertaste. I think water does help to open this up more.

Matt,
Pretty tasty overall but could be a little smoother up front.
 
Michael
Michael,
Smells sweet, dry, and grainy. Occasional sweetness on taste, but mostly dominated by dryness and malt for flavor. Not a bad dram; worth holding on the tongue for a while.

Smooth taste. Neutral to the nose. Short but stiff finish. This one could grow on me.

A little sweet, just enough spice. I really enjoy this but would spend a little more pick up another bottle of something better.

James,
Excellent whisky. Could taste the Carmel and the fudge but yet it wasn't sweet. Strong finish too but not overwhelming. A solid dram.

This is a perfectly ok scotch. Nothing special, but nothing horrible about it. I will enjoy drinking it, but I will not crave it.

Decent NAS. It can't be that young, smooth, sherry, malty, spices. It's not bad but it's too expensive comparing to a couple of good classic single malts with an AS and quality.
