Loch Lomond 18 year
Aged for 18 years in our finest oak barrels, this award-winning malt is full-bodied and rounded with a deep fruity character. A nose of green apple and grapefruit aromas fuse before honeysuckle and mature oak character comes through. Elegant wood notes of toasted oak and cigar box on the taste become green fruits with apple and gooseberry. Long finish with dried tea and tobacco leaf in balance with soft medicinal peatiness and wood smoke.
Glen Scotia 15 Year
Matured in the finest American oak barrels, discover hints of vanilla oak, interwoven with the subtle notes of sea spray and spicy aromatic fruits. Apricot aromas develop then drift towards fruit salad. A complicated palate where the initial nose would lead you to expect plump fruits, but what you get is surprisingly dry caramelized elements, balanced with the wood elements expected of a 15 year old. Firm and slightly dry finish, with warming spice. $79.99
Glen Scotia 18 year
Expect thick sweet toffee and citrus fruits, perfectly balanced with subtle notes of sea spray and spice. An elegant nose with crisp saltiness, perfumed floral notes, sweet honey and salted caramel. An incredibly smooth and rich palate, with fruity flavours and thick sweet toffee. Notes of apricots, pineapple and plump sultana, with a gentle warming spice throughout. Long and dry finish with gentle warming spice.
Glen Scotia Victoriana
Inspired by Victorian times, this cask strength single malt is one for the whisky connoisseurs. Dark with an elegant nose and hints of oak driving the bouquet. Interesting creme brulee notes and toasty sugar lead to generous caramelised fruits and citrus peels, and finally, polished oak. Sweet and concentrated start with some jammy blackcurrant fruitiness. A big mid-palate full of flavour with the sweetness of sherry and the robustness of the charring effect. Clean and initially sweet with a cocoa characteristic like dark chocolate. Gentle smoke on the finish courtesy of the deeply charred oak. $89.99
