Sweet, fruity, spicy (pepper, cinnamon)
Long, sweet, spicy
- This is a very fruity Glen Elgin for the summer, which
surprised me very pleasantly. And it is a swimmer. Thanks, Jan, for the sample. I would like another one for when the sun
comes out again.
The nose is sweet and fruity, but piquant. All sorts
of yellow fruit, tropical, breaks through slowly. Citrus, pineapple, mango.
Reminds me a bit of those summer fruit salads my kids often put together. Some caramel
too. Syrup as if from tinned fruit. Very pleasant.
Water makes it a little less tropical and even offers a grassy side. Nuts, as
the palate too, it is piquant and spicy. This is to be expected. But the tropical fruit emerges immediately,
wonderfully sweet and succulent. A bit of woodspice and light tannins take care
of the balanced. A
bit syrupy. Diluted, it remains wonderfully sweet. It
can take water, no problem.
The finish is long and warm. Honeysweet on pineapple, cinnamon and oak, even with water.
