Glen Scotia rum cask finish for new single malt

Loch Lomond Group has introduced a new Glen Scotia limited-edition Rum Cask Finish single malt, to celebrate its Campbeltown Malts Festival programme.

The festival, which was held last month, showcases single malts from the region. In the Victorian era the town was home to more than 30 distilleries and known as ‘whisky capital of the world’.

Today Glen Scotia is one of just three surviving local distilleries.

To mark its biggest ever festival events programme, the distillery has released its Glen Scotia Campbeltown Malts Festival 2019 Limited Edition Rum Cask Finish, a 2003 vintage.

Non-chill filtered, it has been bottled at cask strength, 51.3% ABV, with 9,500 bottles of this limited edition release will be available worldwide.

Iain McAlister, distillery manager at Glen Scotia, says: “Our new limited edition rum cask single malt offers whisky fans something very special, bringing together the maritime influences associated with Campbeltown and the sweet, tropical notes of rum – another sea-faring spirit.

“As someone who was born and bred in Campbeltown, I am very proud of our distinctive history and heritage. I hope whisky lovers have fun discovering our latest exceptional single malt.”
