SMWS 93.63 (Glen Scotia 15 yo 1999/2015)

2015, SMWS
Single malt - Campbeltown
56.1% ABV

Nose: Red wine, maple syrup, grilled meat, pancakes, bacon, chocolate. With water, papaya, honey, hints of leather. 
Mouthfeel: Medium body, loosens, turns airy, slightly watery around the edges. 
Tasting: Bitter sweet. Maple syrup, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, wet stones. With water, toast, leather, apples, cashew nuts. 
Finish: Long. Bacon, vanilla, maple syrup, chocolate. With water, toast, caramel. 


This whisky starts off sweet and meaty, with a double dose of chewy bacon and chocolate. It's like having pancakes for breakfast, with a hint of wet stones on a hot day. But once water is added it changes completely. It develops into a smoky, peaty, sweet fruity monster, laden with apples and caramel. A bit of a chameleon, this one.


I like this.
