This Glen Elgin 12 Year Old single malt is fit for a lord. This bottling by That Boutique-y Whisky Company is a classic Glen Elgin. Originating from a vatting of ex-bourbon hogsheads, this expression was distilled in February 2006 and matured for 12 years. The fifth batch of Glen Elgin, only 1830 bottles of this have been made.
This is a weighty, complex dram. The nose gives hints of dried fruits, biscuit dough, toffee, and herbal notes. The palate is one of pineapple, vanilla cream, tropical fruits, and dried exotic spices. Expect a warming spice to settle in on the finish, with little hints of Christmas spices. A delight.
