Default Scotch Ale Recipe and Questions

Hello all and things in advance for reading and help. I am planning for my 3rd batch. I am going to attempt a wee heavy. I am starting off with a Brewers Best Scottish Ale Kit that has the following:
4oz Choc. Malt
4oz 60L Caramalt
4oz Smoked malt
1oz roasted malt
1lb Sparkling Amber DME
3.3lb Amber LME
.5oz Northern Brewer hops
.5oz Willamette hops

To increase the gravity of this, and make it more wee heavy like I plan on adding:
6.6 lbs Golden Light LME
1.5 lbs Amber DME

I am a hop head, but this is not a hoppy style. I want the malt complexity with perhaps some chocolate/toffe/coffee notes. Am I on the right track?
I do not want to spend a bunch more at the brew store on this one, but also in my inventory are the following:
8oz pale chocolate malt
1lb smoked malt
1lb 90L caramalt
4lb flaked oats
3-4lbs of dextrose
a bit more amber DME
1oz Warrior hops

Any input is more than welcome!


Primary: Empty
Secondary: Bourbon Barrel Stout
Bottled/kegged: Red IPA, Skeeter Pee, Cranberry Wheat
Plans: ESB
