Glen Scotia 1992/2012 (48.2%, Thosop for The Whisky Man, 162 bottles)Colour: dark amber. Nose: high-impact leathery dry sherry, with a lot of smoked ham and cigars (and their humidor). Some roasted nuts as well, balsamic vinegar, then more black raisins while it becomes a little softer and rounder, as well as distinct notes of old Madeira wine. Beautiful nose, without the quirkiness that can sometimes be found in Glen Scotia. Mouth: really rich, extractive, extremely herbal, with litres of crème de menthe and Jaegermeister plus bags and bags of liquorice and chocolate. It?s obviously the cask that did most of the job here, but it was a great cask, probably a properly treated first fill sherry hogshead. So a heavy, but great cask influence, resembles a bit some tropical aged rum. Caroni, anyone? Finish: long, with more infused notes, teas, mint, liquorice, bitter almonds, pepper? Comments: heavy stuff, quite spectacular. SGP:472 - 87 points.
