Glen Elgin 18 year old (Diageo Special Releases 2017), 54.8%

Price: $340 Issue: Winter 2017 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Matured in European oak butts, this 1998 single malt has a nose of soft toffee, vanilla, and orchard fruits. The palate is very full and sweet, even sugary, with baked apples, peaches in cream, and cinnamon. Medium to long in the finish, with fruity oak, lingering ginger, and pepper. (5,352 bottles)
