The single-malt Glen Scotia 25 Year Old hails from a relatively unknown distillery, and yet has achieved some very cherished accolades, including being named Best in Show and 2021’s Best Whisky in the World at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Aromas of sweet vanilla and clove-studded oranges lead to notes of red apple, caramel, ginger, and sea salt on the palate, while its oak case alludes to its decades-long maturation in the finest American-oak barrels.

It has only recently become available in South Africa (in very limited numbers), so you’ll have to act quickly to secure a bottle. Recommended retail price is R8 000 a bottle.
