    Whiskyfun (22 Nov 2013):
    Glen Elgin 27 yo 1984/2011 (45.1%, Liquid Sun, bourbon, 207 bottles) Four stars and a half Colour: straw. Nose: the best of both worlds, sitting right between the JMcA and the TWF. So there is some vanilla and café au lait but there are also these beautiful notes of oranges as well as these waxy touches that would remind you of some kind of smoother and rounder Clynelish. Also cut apples, fresh walnuts and almonds (and hazelnuts) plus just a little fresh butter. Beautiful fresh nose. Mouth: absolutely excellent and, in a way, even closer to Clynelish, with this salty side, the wax, the oils, the citrus fruits and the honeydew. Some grass as well, to keep it 'nervous'. I wouldn't say this is a surprise but quite. Finish: pretty long, grassier. Green tea. More salt in the aftertaste, this really is salty. Glen Elgin matured on Islay? Comments: maybe not too approachable but it's wonderful malt. Besides, all this salt is very funny (and salty).
    SGP:552 - 89 points.
