THE PERFECT FIFTH GLEN SCOTIA 1992 #8 27 YEAR OLD SINGLE MALT, 45.9% ABV,
Nose: Playful, teasing smoke offers an unlikely sharpness to the already busy barley. For its big age, this malt is alive and kicking; brilliant!
Taste: Sublime depth to the barley which is at its juiciest and glows as the cocoa notes bring out the best of the light smoke.
Finish: A bitter-sweet finale with the phenols swirling around and spices a-buzzing. No signs of tiredness at all as the barley still plays a big part while the oak offers both cocoa and a proud skeleton on which all else hangs.
Balance: Just adore that chocolate and light peat mix.
