Glen Scotia Victoriana is bringing sexy back to Campbeltown single malts.

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 Victoriana starts with their classic Campbeltown-styled single malt aged in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels. How long it is aged at this stage is a bit of a mystery since Victoriana is a “non-age-statement” (NAS) Whisky. The kicker is that this little sexy gem is then finished in deep-char virgin oak casks, which adds extra vanillin and a deeper, richer color. And they aren't messing around, serving it up at 54.8% ABV. Your taste buds and the newly minted Double Gold Medal it just received in San Francisco will both tell you that it turned out pretty darned good indeed.

Ratings & Reviews
David
David,
I love sherried whiskies and have had quite a few. Most have a fairly predictable nose and flavor profile. If you are looking for a unique and unusual sherried whisky I can't recommend this one highly enough. In addition to the raisin and dried fruit characteristics associated with oloroso casks that most of us have become accustomed to this one adds a wonderful, jammy dark berry element I find irresistible. Blueberry?! Also some blackberry syrup. Finish has a lovely hint of ash, with a touch of oak and spice for those of us who favor peated whiskies with some kick. ABV is relatively high...%51.5, but I find this is an easy drinker. The palate belies the alcohol content, so proceed with caution, although the methanol does lurk in the background. If you're like me, and enjoy a whisky that colors outside of the lines, give this one a try.

Lots of dark fruit (plums and figs) on the nose. Palate is sweet with caramel, fruit and vanilla notes. Finish has some heat as it is 51% ABV, but there is still some lingering caramel sweetness.

Cheryl,
My first taste and my first review since joining Flaviar. I also think this is a bourbon drinker’s scotch. Delicate vanilla nose from the bottle intensifies in the glass. Smooth, balanced taste of sweet yet a bit sharp, with a lovely wisp of smoke finish. Adding a couple drops water evened out the taste and brought out the oak. I love it and will be sure to buy it again.

Eric,
Just received this from Flaviar, and I like it a lot. Someone described at as a bourbon-drinker's scotch, and that feels appropriate. I normally prefer a little more delicate flavoring, but this has the Glen Scotia character I love.

Presentation: Stylised Box that carries the narrative somewhat. Striking bottle; light green glass showing off the deep golden brown whisky inside. Nose: Sweet, bourbon like nose when uncapping. In the glass I get a fairly compact nosing of mainly heavy vanilla and raisin, no smoke at all. Adding water dampens the nose very quickly. Palate: Lovely oily mouthfeel from the cask strength, brings a beautifully balanced sweet and savoury initial hit, some jammy flavours turn up and then the whole thing matures wonderfully with very subtle smoke and a fair amount of spiciness. Overall, despite the slightly disappointing nose, a delicious and beautifully balanced whisky.

Eduardo,
Nice caramel, vanilla and orange zest in the nose. At the palate, despite its 51.5% alcohol is smooth, with notes of chocolate, oak and smoke. Really nice expression

A really lovely whisky. A bourbon drinker's Scotch. Lots of caramel and dried fruit notes.

Ian,
Odd taste, like the more mediocre parts of both Islay and Highlands varieties, a more expensive bottle would probably be much better
