Scott's Selection Glen Elgin 1980 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch
Colour: very pale gold.
Nose: elegant and slightly smoky (fir smoke, toasted bread) at first nosing, developing on more fragrant notes of cedar wood, old roses, fresh orange juice and light honey. Rather delicate and very elegant. Maybe just a tad yeasty in the background, with also whiffs of barnyard after the rain (oh well…).
Mouth: very sweet and very fruity, with these yeasty notes again. Belgian Gueuze Lambic? Gets then more honeyed, but there's still a lot of strawberries and ripe pears. A tad tannic as well.
Finish: rather long, with the wood coming through now. Slight bitterness. Comments: the nose is much more elegant, albeit shier, than the palate.
Good whisky altogether.
