    A good and venerable Glen Elgin may be a bit too woody, but here is some "good" wood we have to do! The reduction to 40% could have caused fear of a little shyness but it is not.
    • Nose
      At the first nose we feel that we are at Glen Elgin. The nose is very intense, it has beautiful notes of precious wood and old wood. One is as if transported to a carpenter's shop, or a visit to a castle in the Loire where one breathes the smell of old polished furniture. In fact, the slightly spicy notes perceived are reminiscent of pine sap. Some floral notes also but rather dried flowers. Cherry and blackcurrant.
    • Taste
      Attack very sweet, like an impression of drinking velvet. The whisky is strongly marked by the wood of the barrel. This is not unpleasant, far from it but suddenly the complexity is less. The mouth is in the continuity of the nose from the point of view of flavors but slightly removed from a pleasure point of view. A little licorice too.
    • Finish
      Long and silky, in the prolongation of the mouth.
