Whisky Review: Glen Scotia 10 Year Bordeaux Red Wine Cask

Glen Scotia 10 Year Bordeaux Red Wine Cask / 56.1%

Tasted neat

Bottled for the Campbeltown Malts Festival 2021, this limited edition Glen Scotia is 10 years old, unpeated, and matured in 100% first-fill bourbon barrels before a 5 month finish in Medoc bordeaux red wine casks. It is non-chill filtered, cask strength, and natural colour.

  • Color: 1.3 (russet)
  • Nose: young, hot dunnage warehouse, cedar, spice, and toffee
  • Taste: currants, sweet wine, five spice, tea tree oil, and mulled wine
  • Finish: medium; lots of jammy and fruity notes

This is a delightful juicy dram, full of great fruity red-wine notes. The finish is perfect!

Rating: 87/100
