    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 566 bottles from cask 2599
    Glen Elgin is highly regarded in the whisky trade, but it is not commonly encountered, being very popular with blenders. Since 1930 it has been licensed to White Horse Distillers. Unusually, this example comes from a first fill ex-sherry butt, which has given it the colour of pale mahogany. It also has unusually good beading. The first nose is exquisite: thick Devon cream with soft fudge fruit & nut (raisins and almonds). As might be expected from such a cask, there is a distinct scent of match-box striker when water is added, but this soon blows off to reveal Highland Toffee, with a trace of braised fennel. It has a big, chewy, texture, and an overall sweetness to taste, with wafts of brimstone and a tannic finish.
