Glen Elgin Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Aged 14 Years

This Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a rare and unique cask distilled and filled at Glen Elgin Distillery in Speyside in 2008 and bottled at 54.1% after spending the last four months of its maturation in a barrel which previously held the fruity-floral Floc De Gascogne (rouge).

This sweet aperitif wine, produced in the South West of France with Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat grapes, fortified with Armagnac, has seasoned the wood delivering a ‘finish’ of smoked oak, almond oil, plum blossom, Morello cherries, pink peppercorns and hints of toasted spice.

Only 298 bottles produced from one single cask no. 3010.
