New Release: Glen Scotia 46 Year Old
This is the oldest expression to date from Glen Scotia distillery. This is an exceptionally rare expression with just 150 individually numbers produced.
Distilled in December 1974, this cask came to be at a time when many Campbeltown distilleries had been forced to close their doors for good. To keep Glen Scotia afloat, renovations and investments went underway - the distillery was entering into an exciting new era. Meanwhile, the cask that has now produced Glen Scotia 46 Year Old was quietly slumbering in the distillery's warehouse. This outstanding dram flawlessly ties together the past and future of Glen Scotia in the form of an elegant single malt.
After an initial maturation in refill bourbon casks, the expression was re-casked into a first fill bourbon barrel where it spent a further six years. For the last four years of the spirit's maturation, it was recasked into a first fill Oloroso sherry hogshead before being bottled at 41.7% abv. The expression is free from chill filtration and artificial colouring.
The expression is presented in a beautiful hand-crafted display case. Each case comes with an oak tile that bears the bottle number, tasting notes, and a short blurb of how this single malt came to be. The bottle itself was made in collaboration with Glencairn, adding to the exceptional elegance of the presentation of the dram...
