Glen Scotia 10 yo Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml Glen Scotia(pronounced glen sco-sha) was founded in 1832 by the Galbraith family. The family sold it to West Highland Malt Distillers in 1919, although that company went bankrupt in 1924 and control of the distillery was transferred to Duncan MacCallum. Glen Scotia closed in 1928 but whisky production restarted in 1933. In 1954 the distillery was bought by the Hiram Walker company, who sold it to A. Gillies & Co. After less than one year of ownership, A. Gillies & Co. was absorbed into Amalgamated Distillers Products in 1970. Glen Scotia was closed again in 1984, and then re-opened in 1989, and production stopped once more in 1994 when the distillery was bought by Glen Catrine Bonded Warehouse. Production was again resumed in 1999. It is one of only three remaining distilleries in the region of Campbeltown, the other two being Springbank and Glengyle. The Glen Scotia packaging has been recently redesigned with 5 new expressions (10, 12, 16, 18 and 21 year old ages)using the highland cow and northern light skies as positive images of Scotland. This 10 yr old is part of the new releases from Glen Scotia, and it got Jim Murray quite excited. " such a pleasing mix of spice and sugar, just a pinch of ginger reminds you of the oak" Matured in ex Bourbon casks. Bottled at 46%, no colouring, non-chilfiltered. Whisky Bible 2014 score '90.5'
