Glen Scotia Double Cask
Ronan,
I loved this, despite it not being all that smoky. It had a smoothness with plenty of flavour notes, with a toffee or caramel aroma.

Quite a harsh one, usually I like scotch neat, but would have a bit of water with this one

Nice Malty and sweet scotch, with nice and interesting development.

Too peaty for me

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.

On the nose I got some tropical fruits and spice. Taste was initially fruity, but quickly gave way to ginger spice flavor. I did get some dry, pine notes on the finish. Adding water intensified the spicy ginger notes.

John,
Not really for me. I like the malt and caramel and peach. However, it remains too rocky for me.

Robb,
Definitely malty throughout the long finish

Todd,
I’m a fan but maybe a lower price. A little spice and a little sweet. Good balance for my palette at least.

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.

Eric,
One of the best bottles I've ever had. I normally prefer sweet and sherry, but this is so wonderfully complex and unique. The briny character, the smoothness - this whiskey demands to be contemplated and appreciated.

Joe,
Pretty good, complex earthy dryness.

Interesting. Malty caramel. Dry

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.

To strong for my taste
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Melissa,
Surprising! Mint flavor really comes through for us. Warm and soothing.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Maurizio,
Not my type of dram. Good afterall but too salty (mineral), earthy and dry for me. Yes, the PX is there, but just a little.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Michael,
New to Scotch whisky. I find it smooth wit rich wood and caramel notes. It has a very pronounced “burnt” wood smell. I love it

guest,
Tasty, easy on the tongue. Like a smoother, purer blended, without the lack of bite.
Glen Scotia Victoriana
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

Steve,
Probably my favorite non-peat scotch. Silky smooth, definitely "hidden" in the back of my cabinet from visitors.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Rex,
Not too harsh. Smokey. Terrible after taste.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Antti,
It is an outstanding, rich, Single Malt Scotch Whisky with a rich birth; while a bold & dry life leads to a balanced death of medium length with notes of sherry.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Martin,
Nosing displays spice and a bit of grass. Caramel, some honey a bit of citrus. Light earthy tones to finish. Enjoyable.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
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.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
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.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Michael,
Had never experienced a Campbeltown before but will definitely recommend from now on. Almost as good as an Islay.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
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.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
guest,
One of my favorite scotches for sure.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Aaron,
Really enjoyed this one, smooth & tasty.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
alexey,
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.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Matt,
Pretty tasty overall but could be a little smoother up front.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
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.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Stephen,
Smooth taste. Neutral to the nose. Short but stiff finish. This one could grow on me.
Glen Scotia Victoriana
Andrew,
Had at the Whisky Experience in Edinburgh.

Mark,
Taste like shoe leather. Ick.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Alex,
A little sweet, just enough spice. I really enjoy this but would spend a little more pick up another bottle of something better.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Deja,
Pretty tasty.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
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.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Blake,
Great stuff! Sweet and different from even Islays that I normally enjoy.
Glen Scotia 1992 - The MacPhail's Collection (Gordon and MacPhail)
Daniel,
This is a very very good whisky, love it! Smooth and tasty. Glen Scotia really is a Gem and I like that Gordon and Macphail takes them out into the light. The flavour spiral does not agree with the actual whisky, it’s not smoky not at all.

Daniel,
This is one of the best and smoothest whisky I’ve ever tried. I wish I could lay my hands on another bottle of the pure joy that’s inside.

Matthew,
I don’t like peaty Whiskey / this Whiskey is really great. It lacks the bite / it’s delicious
Glen Scotia Victoriana
Mark,
A really lovely whisky. A bourbon drinker's Scotch. Lots of caramel and dried fruit notes.
Glen Scotia Double Cask
Toby,
This is a perfectly ok scotch. Nothing special, but nothing horrible about it. I will enjoy drinking it, but I will not crave it.
