Single Malts of Scotland, Glen Elgin 2009 (11YO) (700ml)
Single Malts of Scotland,
Glen Elgin 2009 (11YO)
Distilled at Glen Elgin distillery in 2009 and aged for more than 11 years in a single hogshead, which yielded a total of 247 bottles.
Fragrant and characterful, this Glen Elgin is brimming with delicious fruits and delectable pastries.
Nose: Indulgent and fresh – like a trip to the bakery, with vanilla sponge cakes and custard-filled pastry slices with pink icing.
A bowl of fresh fruit salad: sliced nectarine, mandarin, kiwi and red grapes. Some floral notes of jasmine and honeysuckle waft in.
Taste: More mouth-coating custard appears, with a hint of heat.
Spoonfuls of peach chutney and a bag of fruity pastilles contribute an array of delectable flavours, followed by a hint of heather honey.
A bowl of vanilla bean ice cream adds more creaminess.
Finish: A shadow of tanginess rests on at the finish – like that of a punnet of unripe strawberries or rhubarb boiled sweets.
