Palate recreates the nose: creamy and slightly waxy mouthfeel, plenty of bright stone fruits, a touch of honey, refreshing zest of mild citrus, gentle grain and woven around some mild oak spice.
My only sign of criticism here on the finish. You can taste the ever so slight bitterness of a couple of old hoggies here, but many (me included) will find that attractive anyway.
In total, a gorgeous drop. Older expressions of Glen Elgin mature so well. It's got to have something to do with those worm tubs which Diageo have left in place as a keynote of this often under-estimated distillery.
