Review #843 (2021)

This is the 2019 Release from Glasgow Distillery. It is matured in first fill ex-Bourbon casks and finished in virgin oak. Fresh white fruits in the smell. Some grass and vanilla as well, with a bit of toffee in the background.

Quite full in the taste, for such a young whisky. It is the finish in the virgin oak casks that gives it this oaky and spicy palate. Loads of vanilla mixes with the spices and oak in the finish, alongside some butterscotch.

A fine whisky, but an even better example of why I can’t wait to try some older whisky from Glasgow Distillery. The spirit is fantastic, and even at this age, they can produce some whisky that is worth the while. I will give this 82/100 (20/21/21/20).
