White Horse Glen Elgin
This White Horse Glen Elgin dates back to the 1990s and was bottled exclusively for the Japanese market.
I've not spent a lot of time with this distillery and this is the only Official bottling I've tried from this distillery, with others being independent bottlings, so it was defintiely interesting to see and taste.
Hugely inviting nose, sweet and tasty, and a palate that knocks you off your feet with spices, a real eastern tang of spice, a really interesting slice of history and i'm glad to have tried it.
The version I tried was from a Miniature i sourced, but it is also available in a full bottle.
Available to buy from The Whisky Exchange
initially a large amount of furniture polish, then beeswax and freshly cleaned mahogany, left for a minute of two it goes grassy and light fruits, melon and kiwi, some light syrup notes too.
initial approach is light fruits then a whack of spices kick in and take over, wood spices and lots of nutmeg, spiced fruits
huge, spicy, warming.
