ABOUT THE SPIRIT
Completed in 1898, Glen Elgin was the last distillery to be built in the 1800s, as the boom years of the 1890s gave way to a 30-year recession. The founders were forced to sell it in 1901 for less than a quarter of the cost they had paid to build it, and the distillery changed hands three more times, before becoming part of Scottish Malt Distillers in the 1930s. The distillery was refurbished in the 1960s, and now boasts 6 stills. It is part of Diageo, and most of its production goes into blends, but there is a relatively rare 12yr single malt release, and a scarce few independent bottlings.
TASTING NOTES
Bright fresh fruit aromas, with apple pie and old wood in the background. The palate is wonderfully fresh; one could almost call this a juicy malt, with rich fruit-character derived from the malted barley, and creamy oak from the Bourbon cask-influence. Very rewarding.

FOOD PAIRING
Enjoy this as you like – on the rocks or neat; it would also pair excellently with flavoursome cheeses.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
1161 bottles produced; an excellent, rarely-seen Speyside malt.
