Distilled at Speyside’s brilliant Glen Elgin distillery in 1998, this one was then matured in a second fill cask for 30 years before bottling. The ageing period has created the perfect equilibrium between the delicate and flowery notes of this Speyside malt, and the intense aromas of tropical fruits imparted by the oak.
Citrus fruits, mango and hints of grapefruit are apparent on the nose before the palate brings chamomile, honey and beeswax. It’s an old, ripe and rich single malt that delivers a robust, oily mouthfeel and a fantastic intensity of flavour. The finish is lightly spicy, with pepper and mustard, before a spicy tannic rush.
A fantastic, expertly crafted Glen Elgin that picked up a Gold Medal at the Milano Whisky Festival 2019 and is limited to just 197 bottles.
