    85.38 Glen Elgin SMWS
    Nose: The thing also carries the name "Hazelnut iced coffee" I have nothing in my nose. But the alcohol stands nicely in the glass and cools the nose with a nice mint. On the bottle is something of wood polish. Yes you could find ... but vanilla is there and a heavy sweet that does not want to match the appearance, so straw blond as he comes.
    Mouth: The first sip goes without water. Mhhhh I think, how beautifully mild and well integrated and sweet ... class for 60.5% Alk .... and then.... Booooooom explodes the alcohol in my mouth and kills just about everything I just tasted ... Wow ... what's left is pure power and behind it sweet ... Saliva flow sets in and is beneficial to the Elgin ..... I play for an infinite amount of time with the flavors that slowly set in again and now the Ice Coffee is there and the nuts .... Lick me on the Po's the thing is the hammer .... the finish wants and will not fade and I find green apples and sweet dessert. Whether it's Panna Cotta like it's on the bottle I do not know for sure it's a creamy dessert ...
    Ok, the next sip should have water in the glass ... I open my little water bottle and gently pour water into the dram ..
    Schwupp, Schwall, shit ... hui that was a lot ...
    Panning, annoying, waiting, trying ....
    Geil .. jo, who tolerates a lot of water ... sweet-sweet he is in the nose and in the mouth he is still very present and strong but without this boom of a once to be deaf and blind in the mouth ...
    Only flavors ... awesome stuff ...
    The finish by the way, not a bit shorter ...
    8 years old. Krass. What could have become of that if the barrel had come and the age had hit on the tongue.
    Maybe something really big, maybe nothing?
    So he is a very good CS Malt who loosely knocks on the 90 point threshold. In his world of ex bourbon barrels ...
    Horny shit!

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Summer straw

    Flavour profile: Young & spritely

    On the nose neat a fascinating combination of warm and
    refreshing aromas like sweet mint leaves rubbed between your fingers, the fresh
    ‘green’ scent of a recently mowed lawn on a sunny day, olive oil wood polish
    and slightly melted honeycomb candy ice cream. On the palate, a minty cool and
    refreshing start which then quickly became flavours of spicy hot cross buns as
    well as fruity cinnamon apple pies. Water added aromas of rosewater Turkish
    delight candy, coconut panna cotta with a pineapple salsa and the mouthfeel was
    now fresh, cooling creamy with a hint of spice like a hazelnut iced coffee.

    Drinking tip: On a warm Saturday late afternoon in the
