Glen Scotia Double Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky - 700ml
Glen Scotia Double Cask is a classic Campbeltown malt, the distillery has a formidable pedigree of whisky making since 1832.
The Double Cask expression is matured in first fill bourbon barrels before being finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks — this provides the perfect balance of rich spicy fruits overlaid with the characteristic sea spray and iconic vanilla oak finish of the house of Glen Scotia.

Deep and dark, with gentle spice and lingering peat smoke
