Glen Elgin

Glen Elgin 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl

Honey-sweet character, often called fruitcake in a bottle. Sweet marzipan fragrances and pleasant sweet wood flavours, drying on the finish

Serving Suggestion: Glen Elgin works best served in a traditional whisky glass, neat or with a little water.

Delivery is always free for Malts Club members and orders over £50.

"A combination of long, slow ferments, and distillation coupled with worm tubs gives a ludicrously fruity spirit, which here is bulging with ripe peach, apricot, and Galia melon coated in cinnamon and nutmeg, given thick weight by the worm tubs. A classic."

Dave Broom, Whisky Advocate Summer 2013, p.114

"Ginger, crystallised barley sweet and a complex array of fruit on the nose, a beautiful balanced taste with light fruit, sweet spice and a zesty freshness and mouth filling finish."

Dominic Roskrow, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.11

"It is always good to try something that you have never sampled before, and Glen Elgin gets a tick from us both in terms of character and as another distillery on our ever growing list.", 2014

Full gold.


Smooth to medium body with a pleasant mouthfeel.


Sweet. Almonds, or marzipan? Some orange juice. Perhaps a trace of sawn wood. With water, Speyside esters, nut oil and buttery fat, prawn crackers, traces of fresh pears; a whiff of smoke or steam; dense.


Sweetish, then dryish, with some acidity between; all well balanced.


Dryish, balanced finish.
