Description

The Glen Scotia 46 years old is the oldest Glen Scotia release to date, with only 150 individually numbered bottles available worldwide. Originally laid down in refill bourbon casks. The finest have been carefully selected and re-casked in first-fill bourbon, before being finished in a single first-fill oloroso hogshead.

This exceptional liquid has received special attention from the Glen Soctia master blender and perfected by years of patience is a rare treasure and window through time. By 1974 Campbeltown's whisky-making empire had fallen and most of its local distilleries had closed and passed into memory. Those few that remained were adapting for a new world, and Glen Scotia was understanding a four-year program of investments and renovations that spelled opportunity for the town and would have brought with it a great sense of optimism. But for the distillery manager, Mike Smith and his team, these final years and casks would also have marked the close of a very special chapter of history. 

It was a chapter defined by tradition, care, and craftmanship - an old way of doing things - which was handed down to Mike by his father during his own appointment as Glen Scotia's Distillery Manager. Today's Glen Scotia's current Distillery Manager & Master Distiller, Iain McAlister, has picked up the mantle of caring for these cherished casks of exceptional character, and ensuring the final result is outstanding. 

Official tasting notes:

Nose: Rich dried fruit and citrus peel, sweet thick toffee balanced with bracing ocean sea spray and fresh vanilla

Palate: Velvet mouthfeel with layers of melted brown sugar and golden caramel, baked apple, and poached pear in vanilla syrup with orange citrus notes

Finish: Long maritime finish with sea salt and waves of warming cinnamon and nutmeg spice
