What happens when you take an already delicious bourbon barrel matured Campbeltown single malt from Glen Scotia distillery and then finish it in first-fill Guyanese Demerara rum barrels? You get this tasty treat, that’s what. Double the cask, double the flavour is the theory here, but this process also has historical precedence. Glen Scotia has records that go as far back as 1815, before the distillery was founded, that show casks of rum present and for sale in the town.
Region: Campbeltown Whisky
Nose: Seaspray coats brown sugar, charred pineapple, and cinnamon.
Palate: Thick molasses is joined by other notes you’d expect from a combo of bourbon and rum casks like desiccated coconut, banana, vanilla, nutmeg, and stone fruits.
Finish: More of those maritime notes and aromatic spice.
