Glen Scotia Distillery
Fantastic balance, but uncompromising.
1974, Aged 30 Years
Nose: Buttery yet oily. Complex notes of car mechanic workshop, coconut oil, black olives in brine. With water, goats' cheese, smoke and candied peel.
Palate: The oiliness shows best here giving a mouth coating texture. Lemon, light spices. Ever so slightly salty. Pure flavours.
Finish: That salty cheese again.
Comment: Fantastic balance, but uncompromising.
Nose: Delicate, floral. Orange blossom. Apricot and almond pie cooking in the oven. Develops on toffee. A peat echo.
Palate: Caressing, luscious, rich. Peach melba. Floral honey. Pear drop.
Finish: Smooth, sensuous, deliciously lingering. Spicy dryness.
Comment: What a lovely nectar. Great fruit and cream combination.
