Excerpt: The palate is mildly smoky and drying, showing espresso, vanilla, leather and cigar wrapper, plus a baking spice finish. Water pulls out a fudgy undertone, overall it's still relatively oaky and dry.

Doughy yeasty baking sweets, vanilla, toffee and cloves and cinnamon. Kind of an oatmeal note. Mild smoke char, salted caramel is really heavy. Smells very inviting
Mild smoke and char. Burnt brown sugar. More doughy malty sweetness and a whole lot of toffee. More salted caramel follows. I'm really enjoying this and the mouth feel is good even for the proof.
Medium but gentle. Well blended and sweet with good char notes mixed in.
I really enjoyed this dram and I chugged (not literally) through my third of the bottle dangerously fast. I think it maybe lasted two weeks. It is well rounded and hits a lot of notes I like. The oatmeal and salted caramel notes were also a neat new niche. It's a little pricey at $99 a bottle but certainly not unreasonable. It didn't blow me away but I thoroughly enjoyed this. For this reason, I'm rating Glen Scotia 15 a 6 - definitely a cut above.
