The whisky is finished in a combination of first fill bourbon barrels followed by time in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks to produce this outstanding malt whisky that provides the perfect balance of rich spicy fruits, overlaid with the characteristic sea spray and vanilla oak finish for which the house of Glen Scotia is famous.
A dry red wine. Brilliant ruby red. Cherries (both fresh and under spirits), plums and liquorice; spices such as pepper and cinnamon; hints of undergrowth. Dry, fruity, pleasantly well-balanced.
Perfect with red and white meats and roast poultry dishes. Delicious with roasts, stews or braised meats and with hard cheeses.
Medium intense ruby red. Nose full of various scents, including aromas of cherries in alcohol, strawberries and plums, along with notes of sweet cocoa and pipe tobacco with a slight base of violet petals and blood orange. On the palate it is soft and silky, acidity and sapidity make it lively and intriguing. Pleasantly fresh, floral and spicy finish.
A powerful and fine wine. Mature nose with mild tobacco and morelloflavours. In mouth, rich attack of ripe fruits, livened up by little fresh fruits liqueur (blackcurrant/raspberry ) aromas. The melting oak tannins come all along with the wine in mouth. Fresh, complex (garrigue, coffee-roasting) and with a very long finish.
