    Blindtasting: A very interesting malt, which does not meet my taste, as it tastes a bit special. Tap 50%, 10 years, White Waste, Speyside.
    • Nose
      Fresh (after alcohol), slightly sour, slightly fruity, subtle honey note. Not very complex, but rather straight.
    • Taste
      Very special taste, alcohol in combination with effervescent tablets and white wine.
    • Finish
      First, very fresh after light grapes, a little sweet, then a nice spice that decays relatively quickly (but warm).

    Note by Wilson & Morgan;

    Like other classic Speyside distilleries before it, Glen Elgin receives the “Marsala treatment” too… but with moderation. In this case, we are speaking of dry Marsala, which is more akin to Oloroso sherry and doesn’t turn the whisky into a candied fruit and dried plums feast (which we wanted to avoid, since it’s a subtle and fragrant malt). The result is fragrant and appetizing, a very subtle and sunny combination of wonderful aromas: candied oranges, fresh apricots, chamomile, hay and flowers, with a touch of chestnut honey and a hint of anise. In the end it gets drier and nuttier, more intense and particularly lively: a good match with aged cheese, although it’s also great as an afterdinner malt.

    N: the interaction between the distillate and the final in Marsala, whose aromas here are still powerful, give rise to a bizarre profile: we hear notes of carob, walnut, but also of celery (?!), Licorice, rhubarb . In short, a 'dark' whisky, here and there mitigated (or if we want to 'normalized') from the 'sweetness' of caramel, cooked plums. Raisins and sponge cake (... malaga?) P: low alcohol; the scenario is the same as at the nose, but the light changes. There are still the peculiar flickers of carob, licorice and celery, and even unexpected metallic suggestions, barely mentioned, and an intense sweet tobacconist (pipe). All lying on a lawn of a very, very marked sweetness, of ... Marsala; and rain raisins. F: still a lot of raisins ... it strikes like those notes of celery still persist. The nose seemed to us really intriguing; the palate, to our taste, exceeds in a sweetness sometimes a bit 'too marked, but overall proves to be a successful experiment, embellished then by really unpublished notes (celery?), but well integrated. The profile, an accomplice that sweetness so obvious, is not those that make us tear your hair, but given the unusual characteristics the taste is definitely recommended http://whiskyfacile.com/2015/05/15/glen-elgin-23-yo-19912014-wilsonmorgan-50/
