Iniquity Gold Batch 007 Single MaltAugust 15, 2023
Glen Scotia distillery is located in the Campbeltown region, being one of just three distilleries left in the smallest whisky region in Scotland. The distillery was founded in 1832, also known as The Scotia or Old Scotia.
Glen Scotia Double Cask single malt is non-age stated (NAS) whisky. Aged in first fill bourbon barrels, finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks.
Campbeltown gives you high expectations
Whenever there’s Campbeltown involved, it’s hard not to think about Springbank distillery. You automatically start to compare to Springbank’s great whisky making track record.
That’s probably what happened to me too. My expectations were automatically high, even though we’re talking about completely different distillery. Even Glengyle (Kilkerran), the other distillery in Campbeltown, has produced good whiskies.
So I have to admit, there was unfair comparison involved. Too bad I didn’t have more of this Glen Scotia malt to taste. Oxidation seemed to make it better, though I’m sure it wouldn’t affect much to my ratings.
