    In a nutshell (SMWS-style name): “Well, you clearly want the marmalade”
    •Nose: Preserved lemon, powdered sugar, cantaloupe, raspberry, Cointreau, cinnamon, creamy white chocolate, elderflower, and vanilla. Keeps building over time.
    •Taste: Chocolate-covered oranges, raspberry jam, strawberry-rhubarb jam, basic fruit salad, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a little bacon-y at the very end. Rich and fruity but not at all cloying.
    Score: B+ (89 if you must); Could be some grade inflation here because I’ve been hunting for a fruity dram and I got one. A risky order as it was on the cheap end for IB prices, it’s young, and from an un-hyped distillery, and there weren’t any reviews so all I had to go on was the product description. I assumed this was a re-re-refill hoggie since it’s doesn’t say, but maybe there were some sherry staves in there, or perhaps it’s just the spirit (yay!). Finds a way to be light and rich at the same time in a really lovely way. Not the makings of a legendary malt but one of those you reach for first so many times it’s gone before you know it. Makes me want to try more Glen Elgin.

    BBR’s tasting notes… This characterful Speyside exudes thick aromas of fruit salad chews, melon syrup and strawberry jelly. The viscous mouth-feel is balanced by a gentle spirit character, rosewater, orange zest, banana, and Glen Elgin’s classic marmalade notes. A surprising glimpse of peat appears on the finish alongside more orange and mouth-watering lime.
