GLEN ELGIN 21 years old 1995 51,5%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 53078
As is the distillery style, this cask is bursting with fruity flavours. Maturation for over 20 years in a refill hogshead has refined and added depth to the spirit, while still excellently showcasing the original fruity, yet weighty character.
Glen Elgin is perhaps one of the lesser-known malt whisky distilleries in Scotland, despite having a strong following among whisky aficionados. Since its establishment in 1898, Glen Elgin quickly developed a very good reputation among blenders and is still a key ingredient in famous blends.

- 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.
