Glen Scotia Victoriana

Glen Scotia Victoriana

Official bottling
Single malt - Campbeltown
Amber gold
51.5% ABV

Nose: Orange peel, black tea, peaches, pears, white grapes, hints of leather. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, loose, airy, slightly watery around the edges. 
Tasting:  Bitter sweet. Black tea, peaches, leather, peanuts, sandalwood, hints of violets. 
Finish: Short. Peanuts, peaches, lemon zest, white grapes. 


Old fashioned whisky, the bartender said, and old fashioned whisky it is. Quite sweet, slightly smoky, bitter notes, even savoury. Good fruit cut with peat and a slight hint of fragrant smoke. I guess the only way this could be more old fashioned is if it were matured in herring barrels, like Campbeltown whisky used to be...


I like this.
