Insights from some of the best in the business

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
