Glen Scotia Campbeltown Malts Festival 2020
Until recently, everyone could attend the Campbeltown Malts Festival (in May, each year), at which distilleries from this region present new editions of their whiskies, bottled especially for this occasion. This year (2020) for obvious reasons, the festival couldn’t take place, however, those special editions of Campbelltown whiskies were available for the consumers. Glen Scotia Campbeltown Malts Festival 2020 is one of them.

It’s a peated edition, aged in first-fill bourbon barrels, American oak casks and finished in tawny port casks (which I enjoy much more than „ruby port”). Tawny Port age in smaller casks than ruby, which affects the more pronounced influence of wood on the wine maturing in it.
