Whiskyfun: Colour: white wine. Nose: very similar, just rather chalkier than the 2006. Does chalk come with age? Having said that there are whiffs of bandages, which, indeed… Also a touch of tangerine. With water: damp chalk and mushrooms, with touches of camphor and lemon peel. You cannot beat this profile. Mouth (neat): I think people tend to forget that Glen Elgin has a stellar distillate. This is just further proof, with tangerines and grapefruits, chalk, touches of melon, resins and putties. With water: a little sweetness, a little jamminess. A drop of sugarcane syrup. Impeccable. Finish: medium, pretty sublime actually. Ticks all the boxes, the chalky one, the waxy one, all the fruity ones… Comments: this senior really impressed me, what an immaculate spirit.
