Glen Elgin was one of the last distilleries to be built in the 19th Century, but the infamous marble smuggler Lord Elgin, pictured alongside his magnificent white steed on our label, wouldn't have known the distillery during his lifetime as he died some 57 years before it was founded.
His horse, however, went on to build a distillery named after his master, as well as produce his own legendary label of Blended Scotch Whisky. Such a clever wee horse (this may not be an accurate statement)
Nose: Sweet as it opens with white chocolate, soft toffee and a glaze of honey. A hint of charred oak smokiness develops with whispers of yellow plum, floral barley a tinge of ginger.
Palate: Acacia honey, apricot yogurt and a little buttery shortbread add supple sweetness among earthy vanilla and a prickle of baking spice.
Finish: A medium length finish, with toasted oats and a twist of lemon.
