Glen Elgin 1995 16 year old

The Glen Elgin distillery is situated in the heart of Speyside in Scotland, but is not a very known distillery. It is owned by Diageo and is mainly used for blends, such as White Horse and Johnie Walker. They do have one single malt whisky; the 12 year old Glen Elgin. But luckily for us there are plenty of independent bottlings of Glen Elgin single malt whisky. Today I will review one of these bottlings: A Glen Elgin 1995 16 year old from Signatory Vintage.

Glen Elgin 1995 has matured in a hogshead for 16 years and is natural coloured. Bottled at 46% abv. Cask no. 1148.

Glen Elgin 1995 16 year old tasting notes:

Nose: Ah Coconut! But that dissapears later. Then grass, vanilla pancakes, lemon and morning dew. Very fresh tones, lovely. Than a hint of digestives cookies as well and sugar coated donuts! Oh my, that is promising for the taste.

Taste: Super sweet! The digestives and donuts are back again. But also a bit of fresh oak, lemon and white chocolate.

Finish: Medium long and a bit dry, also a little bit peppery.

This is a fine drinking whisky, a nice summer dram. The flavour is good, but nog much depth. And that’s it.
