Glen Scotia 12 Year Old (Old Bottling) (70cl, 40%)
The standard 12 year old for Glen Scotia, now discontinued and repackaged on several occasions.
The 12 year old core bottling from the Glen Scotia distillery, there are now just two other distilleries in Campbeltown. Glen Scotia has actually halted production, though they continue to mature their whisky.
Despite having been mothballed several times throughout its history, Glen Scotia is a proud survivor of the early 20th century desolation of Campbeltown, once known as "the whisky capital of the world.” The Kintyre peninsula formerly boasted over 30 distilleries, but by the end of the 1920s, only this and Springbank remained. Shut for most of the 1990s before being re-opened by Loch Lomond Distillers, today it is one of only three in the region, with an increasingly prominent portfolio of distillery bottlings in comparison to its quiet output under previous owners.
