  • Intro:

    This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Glen Scotia, bottled by SMWS after 8 years of aging in an ex-bourbon barrel. This bottling, "Seafood Cycles" is bottled at cask strength, with no coloring or filtering. Let's see how it is.

  • Nose:

    Sweet buttercream, bright fruity lemon citrus, musty sea air. The fresh baked bread and maritime is a nice balance given how sweet it smells.

  • Taste:

    Sweet, thick and rich. Honey, musty paper mache, bright apple. Then things get serious. Charcoal smoke, burning wood, and minerality storm in. Next is some brine and a faint fishy note. The ABV is hard to ignore too - pretty hot, although it's young and north of 60%. Creme brulee and sweet toffee round out everything.

  • Finish:

    Long, rich and nutty. Almond, brine, ash and more fresh baked bread play all over. Lots going on here.

  • Overall:

    I really like this. I've yet to have a Scotia this young, this powerful, and entirely ex-bourbon. Stats I expected not to like, but I'm into it. Nice work, Scotia (and SMWS).

  • Score:

    6
