GlenScotia 27 Year Old, 1992, The Perfect Fifth
THE PERFECT FIFTH GLEN SCOTIA 1992 #8 27 YEAR OLD SINGLE MALT, 45.9% ABV,
Taste: Sublime depth to the barley which is at its juiciest and glows as the cocoa notes bring out the best of the light smoke.
Finish: A bitter-sweet finale with the phenols swirling around and spices a-buzzing. No signs of tiredness at all as the barley still plays a big part while the oak offers both cocoa and a proud skeleton on which all else hangs.
Balance: Just adore that chocolate and light peat mix.

Perfect equilibrium can also be found in taste, this results when all five tastes that a person can sense become flawlessly aligned. As Scotch whisky matures, it draws flavor from the wood, developing a flavor profile unique to itself. Seldom do the five tastes develop with true harmony and complexity. When selecting casks of such high quality, it is this perfect fifth that we are seeking; that perfect equilibrium of flavor notes, which are so often sought after but so rarely found.
The Perfect Fifth scours distilleries all over Scotland, from the Orkney Islands to the Lowlands, from Campbeltown to Speyside, in an effort to find the magnum opus of each distillery.
What they have uncovered is a selection of whiskeys that are extraordinary examples of that distillery’s unique character.
Never before has Scotch whisky been presented in this way. The unique packaging is reminiscent of the whisky cask complete with textures and grooves intended to evoke the craftsmanship, and artistry, of the cooper.

Open the bottle to experience a multitude of aromas from the hand-selected whiskey within. Once it passes the lips, expect a full-bodied and complex flavor profile, a sensation that is unique to each release and has passed uncompromising quality standards.
