Every year, whisky enthusiasts from around the world flock to the Campbeltown Malts Festival, held in May, to experience the unique atmosphere and indulge in limited edition releases.

While attending the festival may not be feasible for every whisky lover, this limited edition bottling offers the opportunity to savor the festival's essence from the comfort of your own home.

The Whisky Journey:

Distilled in 2013, this eight-year-old single malt has been crafted with care and attention at the cozy Glen Scotia distillery. After its initial maturation of seven and a half years in high-quality first-fill bourbon barrels, the whisky embarked on a finishing period of twelve months in Pedro Ximenez (PX) Hogsheads. The influence of the PX casks adds depth and complexity to the final product. Bottled at a cask strength of 56.5% ABV, this whisky delivers a robust and authentic experience. It is important to note that the whisky is non-chill filtered and has not been artificially colored, preserving its natural characteristics.

Palate: Upon tasting, layers of syrupy sweetness envelop the palate, accompanied by a symphony of rich spices. The underlying peat influence adds depth and complexity, creating a harmonious feast for the senses. Each sip reveals new dimensions, inviting you to explore the whisky's intricate flavor profile.

Finish: The finish is a true reflection of Campbeltown's character, with a subtle hint of salt and a clear maritime influence. It leaves a lasting impression, evoking memories of coastal breezes and the rugged beauty of the region.
