An expressive nose of apples, red berries and light vanilla with a touch of caramel. A little florality and lemon zest. With a little time in the glass to air, there are typical Glen Elgin light tropical fruits coming through under the red fruit. On the palate there is vanilla fudge and zesty lemon at first with the mid palate giving tropical and red berry fruit and a little sweet toasty oak. Touches of spice and cracked black pepper sit in the background. The finish is long and juicy with soft spices and toasty oak. A little fennel shows right at the end and the overall finish isn’t drying at all. This is an intense and satisfying dram for a ten year old. Good depth and breadth of flavour for a relatively young whisky.
