- Tasting note by Serge Valentin
Glen Elgin 1971/1988 ‘Fragments of Scotland’ (50%, Duthie for Samaroli, Italy) Colour: gold. Nose: very special start, on full tea mode (old pu-her) and candy sugar. Develops on lots of peppermint, with a superb balance again, getting very complex. Lots of honey, oriental pastry (orange water) and natural mastic. What a superb nose! Mouth: a beautiful attack again, with again quite some tannins but still a superb balance. Gets very peppery, yet nicely rounded. Strong caramel crème, cooked apples, honey sauce…Glen Elgin 1971/1988 ‘Fragments of Scotland’ (50%, Duthie for Samaroli, Italy)
30 yo Pu-Her tea from Yunnan. Thanks to Nico at Les Jardins de Gaïa
Yet, it’s very ‘natural’, with little cask influence that I can get, except oak itself. The finish is very long, very peppery and almost prickly (it teases your tongue). And very, very salty at that! Another wonderful old Glen Elgin: 91 points.

- A complex Glen Elgin with a lot of depth. From the collection of FullProof.
Lots of flowery notes. Roses. Heather. Delicate fruity sweetness of lemon and grapefruit. Hints of cedar wood. Vanilla at the background. It's all very subtle.
Quite powerful. More on orange marmelade and peel zest now. Stewed peach and apricot as well. A little cake mix and honey. More nutiness later on.
Medium long. black pepper. Liquorice. Becomes salty at the end.
