    The first Glen Elgin I drink and I think it's a very entertaining whisky. It is a white-war of aromas from heavy oak to slightly sour fruit and everything in between. I had to get used to this but as he is longer in the glass and you start to get used to it, this is a very charming and entertaining whisky.
