Glen Scotia Whisky

Clasically, Glen Scotia has always been quite bracing; a fruity nose, but green and a little salty on the palate. After rebranding, the aged releases share this character, a fruity nose that expands in the flavour, but with a drying element. The cask finished releases balance the dry quality and the salt with sweet, fruity characters and a hint of spices, or a woody vanilla creating a creamy profile.

Stewart, Galbraith and Co. built the distillery in the heart of Campbeltown. The distillery is said to be haunted by Duncan MacCallum who bought the distillery in 1924. He committed suicide by drowning himself in Campbeltown Loch in 1930 after realizing he had been cheated out of a fortune by swindlers.

 

Although £1 million was spent on upgrading the distillery between 1979 and 1982 its then owner closed the distillery in 1984. Gibson International reopened the distillery in 1989, however the company went into receivership in 1994 and the distillery lay silent once more.

 

After reopening in 1999 under the Loch Lomond Group, a 12 year old bottling was available, but Glen Scotia was more common through independent bottlers. Since 2012, the wide range included several age statements, but since LLG passed into ownership of Exponent, the rebranding has reduced the range, and altered the packaging to promote a core focus and form a more stable following.

A gutsy whisky from Glen Scotia, with a true Campbeltown heart wrapped up in a fruity hug from the port casks. Elegant it is not, delicious it is.
