Glen Scotia 10 Years Red Wine - Campbeltown Festival 2021

Glen Scotia Campbeltown Malts Festival 2021

Glen Scotia will release a 10 Years Bordeaux Red Wine Cask Finish for the upcoming Campbeltown Malts Festival 2021. While the festival itself is cancelled, some whiskies will probably have been bottled anyway and will be available online.

This is matured in 100% first-fill bourbon barrels before a finish of 5 months in Medoc Bordeaux Red Wine casks. Expect red berries, roses, violets and a maritime breeze. Bottled at cask strength 56.1%, this is the first unpeated Festival bottling for Glen Scotia.


Mac-Talla Terra / Mara

Mac-Talla Terra / Mac-Talla Mara

Mara and Terra are two new whiskies from Morrisson Distillers. Mac-Talla (which means echo in Gaelic) is a series of single malt Islay whiskies.

Mac-Talla Terra (€ 48) is matured in ex-bourbon casks, bottled at 46% ABV and is the classic Islay style with heavy peat smoke. Mac-Talla Mara (€ 50) on the other hand comes at barrel strength 58.2% ABV, was also matured in ex-bourbon casks but focuses more on the maritime Atlantic influence.


Kilchoman PX Sherry / Kilchoman mezcal single cask

Kilchoman PX Sherry Cask / Kilchoman Mezcal single cask

Two upcoming Kilchoman expressions. The first is a limited Sherry Cask Matured version, bottled at 47.3% ABV with 12,000 bottles available.

The other is a Kilchoman 2013 single cask with a Mezcal cask finish. This is 7 years old, it comes at cask strength 55.3% ABV and is exclusive to Impex Beverages in the USA.
