Glen Scotia Rum Cask Finish Campbeltown Malts Festival 2019

17th June 2019
Glen Scotia has introduced a new cask strength 2003 vintage limited edition Rum Cask Finish single malt to celebrate its Campbeltown Malts Festival 2019.

Glen Scotia 2003 Rum Cask Finish Campbeltown Malts Festival 2019The Glen Scotia 2003 Rum Cask Finish is a new limited edition single malt from the Glen Scotia distillery which they released to mark its Campbeltown Malts Festival 2019 programme.

The festival, which was held last month, showcases all that is unique and special about 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 and its award-winning whiskies are known for their distinctive Campbeltown character.

A 2003 Vintage, it is a peated single malt which is said to deliver "sea spray and sweetness on the nose, with notes of melted brown sugar, pineapple and citrus fruits developing before delivering a long dry finish, with spice and sweet peat".

Non-chill filtered, it has been bottled at cask strength, 51.3% ABV and around 9,500 bottles will be available worldwide.

Iain McAlister, Distillery Manager at Glen Scotia, said: "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."

Hundreds of visitors from all over the world took part in tours, tastings and more at Glen Scotia as part of its packed programme during the Campbeltown Malts Festival. Highlights included tastings at its historic dunnage warehouse and two sold-out whisky dinners held at the Ardshiel and Ugadale Hotels.

The distillery also hosted local MSP Michael Russell to launch its new campaign to recognise Campbeltown, the fifth and smallest of Scotland’s official malt-producing regions, as the ‘whiskiest place in the world’. Glen Scotia has introduced new branding as part of the global campaign.

Priced around £70.95 you will find the Glen Scotia 2003 Rum Cask Finish available to buy from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
