Glen Elgin 12yr Old Whisky 700ml, 43%
Glen Elgin 12yo is a top-quality malt, highly sought-after for blends. This is a little-seen single malt expression. Glen Elgin is known for its continued use of traditional worm-tubs, being a prime component in the White Horse blend, and one of Diageo’s Classic Malts representing the Speyside region. It’s first official distillery bottling was released in 1977, and since then it has seen many guises, latest of which is this official 12yo available since 2005.
Nose: Very floral and fruity with red gapes and both prunes and plums. A glossy wood oil, an unmistakeable nuttiness, and hints of sweet malt appearing throughout.
Taste: You have to hold this in your mouth for a few seconds to appreciate it; as the weight of the spirit slowing sinks in your mouth and saturates your taste buds with a slick, oily presence and whisper of spice poised with the rich, honeyed malt.
