Distilled at Glen Scotia Distillery in February 1992. Bottled in Glasgow June 2014. Aged 22 Years in a refill hogshead. Un-chill filtered, no artificial colouring. 55.5% Alcohol by volume.

The house style of Glen Scotia is of a slightly smoky, salty malt with a maritime influence coming through. Vanilla ice cream and egg custard.

The distillery, which is situated in Campbeltown on the Kintyre Peninsular was founded in 1832 by Stewart Galbraith & Company. At one time Campbeltown was home to over 30 distilleries. Glen Scotia is one of the last two great Campbeltown survivors the other is Springbank. The distillery is said to be haunted by Duncan Macallan who bought the distillery in 1924. He committed suicide by drowning himself in Campbeltown Loch in 1930 after realising he had been tricked out of a large sum of money by swindlers. Although £1million was spent upgrading the distillery between 1979 and 1982 it was closed in 1984. Gibson International reopened it in 1989 but they then went into receivership in 1994. Glen Catrine Bonded Warehouse Limited then acquired it from receivership.
