This 45-year-old expression is the oldest single malt released by Glen Scotia to date. Distilled in December 1973 and matured for almost forty years in refill bourbon barrels, it was re-racked into first fill bourbon casks in 2011. Aged for a further seven years before being selected for bottling by Master Distiller Michael Henry in 2019, this expression is limited to just 150 individually numbered bottles. Each bottle is presented in a beautiful case hand-crafted from sustainably sourced British walnut and lined with embossed leather.
The nose has Campbeltown's bold coastal notes alongside rich fruit notes of pineapple and green apple, before floral notes of rose, vanilla and toasted oak emerge. The palate is oily and sweet with caramel, mango, pineapple, melon, vanilla and honey. the finish is long and warming with sea salt, lime, cinnamon and ginger.
