Glen Elgin 12yr Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (1x 700mL)

$115
Wine Summary Image

Glen Elgin was built and designed by the notable distillery architect Charles Doig. The distillery was founded at the end of the whisky-boom in 1898 when Leith whisky blender, Pattisons, famously drove a buoyant market for malt whisky into recession. (Local legend has it that many of the workers went unpaid and that the steeplejacks only got their money when they threatened to demolish the chimney-stack). Despite the crisis, the owners William Simpson (former manager of Glenfarclas) and James Carle decided to continue their activities on a smaller scale. Unfortunately, they were forced to end the production and to sell their distillery as soon as November 1900, just six months after their first distillation.

Winery Tasting Notes

There's a minor cult following among malt aficionados for Glen Elgin, and you can see why. This is a lovely 'old fashioned' style, backed up by high quality oak. Amber gold. Delicate whiffs of tea biscuits, grain store, old parchment and faint beeswax greet the nose. Swirling and air time draws out distant dried fig and apple. In the mouth, it's beautifully rounded, delicious, no-nonsense whisky that feels and tastes more polished and much more expensive than it actually is. A seamless integration of fruity / honeyed / muesli bar-like flavours end in a lipsmacking finish, while lingering oily sweetness and trace peat add complexity to the final stages.
