2003 Vintage, Rum Cask Finish
A very tasty limited edition Glen Scotia, released to celebrate the 2019 Campbeltown Malts Festival.
This peated single malt was distilled in 2003, aged initially in refill American oak Bourbon hogsheads and finished in Guyanan rum casks for eight months bringing melted brown sugar character balancing wonderfully with the smoky peat and citrus fruits.
Nose: Sweet plums, a peppery spicy aroma with some tropical fruits in support and a wisp of smoke.
Palate: Sweet citrus peel and caramelised brown sugar, peat smoke and barbecued pineapple with salted caramel and a maritime backbone.
Finish: Rum and raisin ice cream, toffee, dried apricot and balanced earthy peat.
