Lately, quite a few Glen Scotia from 1992 have been released, I feel. They are somewhat hit & miss if you ask me, but I have to admit, I am not very fond of Glen Scotia. I can only remember a few good ones. This Glen Scotia (which is Gaelic for valley of Scotland) matured on a refill sherry hogshead and was bottled by Thosop, reknowned for the better liquid stuff. It is very dark and shows heavy beading.

The nose is very aromatic and rich in dried fruits like prunes and figs, raisins on rum, tobacco leaves and a whole array of nuts. Walnuts, hazelnuts and even some pecan nuts. Fresh on mint, but with a slightly sour touch. All kinds of berries too. Hint of smoke, nice touches of the oak.

It is oily and feisty. All kinds of herbs and spices (liquorice, pepper, cloves and nutmeg) are a prelude to sweet fruit, mildly drying oak and quite a bit of brine. Midpalate, the berries return.

The finish, medium in length and rather salty, turns the mouth completely dry.

It reminds me a lot of the 1992 that Malts of Scotland launched recently. I would not be surprised if this was a sister cask. I enjoyed it quite a lot. Around 110 EUR.
