GLEN SCOTIA 45 YEAR OLD

70cl / 43.8% abv

A stunning Campbeltown single malt and the oldest released to date by Glen Scotia distillery, this 45-year-old was laid down in December 1973 and matured for almost four decades in refill bourbon casks before being re-racked into first fill bourbon barrels in 2011. After seven more years, this expression was deemed ready for bottling by Master Distiller Michael Henry. Bottled at 43.8% abv, only 150 individually numbered bottles have been produced and each one is presented in a beautifully hand-crafted walnut case.

HAMISH SAYS

Nose: coastal and fruity with pineapple, green apple and vanilla.

Palate: oily and sweet with caramel and tropical fruit notes, rounded out with vanilla and honey.

Finish: lingering sea salt and lime citrus with cinnamon and ginger spice.
