Dram Review: Glen Scotia Aged 15 Years

[46.0%・15 Years Old・Bottled Circa. 2015-2017・Official Bottling・General Release]

Nose:

Minerals and rum soaked raisins, quite vanilla-y with traces of metallic notes.  After a while comes the overripe fruits, dried apricots and honey.

Palate & Finish:

Sweet rum and raisins, not too full bodied but quite smooth with a dose of liquor soaked oranges.  It grows a tad spicy with a gingery kick.

Some liquorice and a wee nuttiness to end, the liquor soaked oranges linger on.

Thoughts:

I must confess I have not paid much attention to Glen Scotia since their previous packaging from a few years ago.  This is actually rather decent and I think an improvement to its predecessors..
