    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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Medium long. black pepper. Liquorice. Becomes salty at the end.
