Glen Scotia 1991 Benchmark (Murray McDavid)

Glen Scotia 1991 Benchmark (Murray McDavid) This dram was part of the Murray McDavid tweet tasting a while back, I unfortunately missed the tasting and have caught up since.

A 1991 vintage cask of Glen Scotia finished for its last year in a burgundy wine cask giving it a deep rich red colour.

This is a damn tasty dram and was not at all what I was expecting, a lot more fruit and sweetness in here than I expected but believe me it's still brilliantly drinkable, if you see this, drink it.


Really rich deep red fruits, plum skins, sweet and tasty, sugar coated beeswax furniture polish, acetone and mr sheen, waxy raisins covered in milk chocolate, marzipan and apricot jam with cherry wood.

Sweet, oily, deep,rich red fruits again, plum sauce and engine oil, cherry wood and apricots, milk chocolate coated marzipan.

Sweet, oily, juicy, plummy, tasty as hell.
