GLEN ELGIN 12 ans Reserve Casks Elixir 48%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 57951
This 12-year-old Glen Elgin is a blend of 4 casks. Its profile contains ripe fruit and citrus right from the get go. This is a dram that has interacted extensively with wood, as is clearly shown by its elegant spicy finish. The Single Malts of Scotland Reserve Casks range brings together single malts selected for their quality and flavour profile. Created using a blend of small batches from 4 to 6 casks, these whiskies are bottled after being reduced to 48% without either chill filtering or colouring. Each label includes details about the whisky's age, provenance and ageing process, and even covers the angel's share for each region and distillery.

- Nose : Légère et verte. Cidre de poires pétillant et pommes rôties. Les notes sucrées à l'ancienne apportent une touche nostalgique : bubblegum, bonbons à la fraise, rhubarbe et bonbons au caramel.
- Palate : Douce et complexe. Dans un premier temps, un soupçon de citron et de mandarine. Il y a une légère amertume après la disparition des fruits - comme le thé vert infusé - suivie rapidement par le poivre blanc et de boudoirs.
- Overall : Longue et fraîche. Poivre, complété par un bouquet d'herbes fraîches : estragon, thym et racine de réglisse.
- The brand
The Glen Elgin distillery was founded in 1898, the year the Pattison brothers declared bankruptcy causing the ruin of numerous distilleries, and is located in Speyside. Its first years of production were marked by several periods of closure. A long time in the shadow of the Johnnie Walker blend, the Glen Elgin single malt was first officially bottled as part of the Flora & Fauna collection, before being released as a 12 year old at the beginning of the millennium. Independent bottlings of the malt are just as hard to find.
A wine merchant recently founded by the Singh brothers, the owners of The Whisky Exchange in the United Kingdom, Speciality Drinks offers three ranges of very different single malts. The first, Port Askaig, is composed of four bottlings of an Islay single malt, including an expression with no age statement and a 30 year old! The second, Elements of Islay, celebrates the different distilleries on the island, each easily identified by their initials. The third, simply dubbed Speciality Drinks, offers a wide selection of single malts from Scottish distilleries.
The lineSingle Malts of Scotland: Over the years, Speciality Drinks has been acquiring top quality casks of maturing single malt whisky. Since 2005 we have been releasing these whiskies as ‘The Single Malts of Scotland’. Each Single Malts of Scotland bottling is individually selected for its particular quality & character.
