Glen Scotia Double Cask...

Glen Scotia Double Cask (46.0%):
Although I must have gone through at least a couple of bottles of this whisky within last year only somehow it never made in a blog post.. Double Cask is the entry level single malt of Glen Scotia's line-up, matured initially in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels and then transferred into Pedro Ximenez casks for an additional twelve months before being bottled with no age statement at 46% abv.

Color: Yellow gold, white port color with rather quick forming but thick and oily legs.

Nose: Freshly sliced fruits: Granny Smith and Golden Delicous apples, Bartlett pears and nectarines. Young spirit, sugar molasses and canned peaches. Salted caramel brittles, jonquils and jasmine tea. 

Palate: A little thin on the palate but pretty flavorful... Sweet hazelnut paste, vanilla and touch of salt. Some young (but tasty) and lightly peated whisky, wood shavings and underbrewed green tea.

Finish: Medium long with tea tannins, ginger beer and oak.

Overall: Great everyday whisky with a perfectly fair price tag attached to its neck. If I walk into a bar and see this on the board I am all good... Give me a healthy pour of this whisky with a pint of a bitter next to it and I wouldn't have anything to complain for the whole night if they keep coming.

Price: $47
