This is an interesting match up between a Campbeltown single malt whiskey aged 15 years and a corn whiskey from Ireland Teeling Single Grain.

THE CHALLENGERS: - Glen Scotia 15 Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Teeling Single Grain Irish Whiskey

 Both are 46% ABV, both are non-chill filtered, both have fruity characteristics, but of course they are not the same. A little apples and oranges here for you. Glen Scotia is aged in American Oak and features red delicious apple, grain, and toffee with a little refined oak on the nose. It has a juicy mouthfeel and pallet before finishing out with the long-distance stretch of dry fruits and a slight char and sour characteristic. Teeling is aged in ex Cabernet Sauvignon wine casks it has a slightly weaker nose featuring toffee and caramel as well as lemon and grain. The mouthfeel is also somewhat heavy with a cereal grain, egg custard, and banana before ending with a dry yeast to cornmeal and more lemon.Two very interesting entries. Watch the video for my preference and which whisk(e)y you voted for.
