Wild about Whisky: A retaste of a classic Glen Scotia....
Glen Scotia 1992 16yo Single Malt 55.7% Berry's Own (Original tasting October 2010)
Musty oak wrapped in dark toffee with a hint of smoke in the depths.
The palate is all rich spicy fruit cake drying to a tannic finish.
A splash of water opens the nose to more musty and sherried oak.
However the palate is now explosive with chewy Sugus sweets, stewed fruits and finishing with a spiced peaty dryness that lingers into a peppery smoke and medicinal finish.
Could have been an Islay malt....92

Sweet tobacco leaves, barley drenched in maple syrup, the sweetest dark toffee, molasses and the Scotia peat delicately holding this beautiful dram together.
This whisky is so gorgeously balanced with the palate reflecting the nose almost note for note.
The maple syrup so evident initially, then sweet peppery chilli and the peat smoke lingering on the finish.
Again the drop of water is so significant releasing pineapple on the nose, the palate now infinitely more syrupy sweet, the peat now medicinal, distinctly and deliciously Islay. Outstanding! 94
