Matured ex-bourbon, American oak barrels, this shows off the salty, coastal style of Glen Scotia’s Campbelton distillery, but with extra depth and complexity through years of gentle maturation.
Nose – Richer colours. Broad and medium-weight with citrus peels, ginger snap biscuits. Sweet and with great depth. Apricot aromas develop then drift towards fruit salad. After a short time, the wood comes to the fore and water helps to release baked fruit.
Palate – A complicated palate where the initial nose would lead you to expect plump fruits, but what you get is a surprisingly dry element. Adding water will bring out the caramelised elements, balanced with the wood elements expected of a 15 year old.
Finish – Firm and slightly dry, with warming spice.
