    Flawless Drinking Buddy

    I do not believe Signatory needs an introduction. Of Glen Elgin, Diageo’s work horse, they have bottled more than 50 casks, mostly from 1995 and 1996. This is a bottling of two hogsheads, cut to 46%. It’s a good thing independent bottlers look at Glen Elgin, for the official releases are few and far between.

    Sweet, soft and very fruity nose on barley sugar, apples sprinkled with sugar, mandarins, nectarines, honey and freshly cut grass. Hint of coconut. Spring in your glass!

    The body is just fine. Nicely oily. Immediately sweet and sour. Fanta Lemon! Some apricot pie, lime, vanilla custard and honey. Well-seasoned on white pepper and woodspices. Eucalyptus keeps it very fresh. Dangerously quaffable.

    The finish is medium long on more of the same: citrus, sugars and some pepper. A short bitterness at the death.

    This is a flawless drinking buddy on a beautiful spring evening. It’s is almost impossible not to like this.
