A 37 year old, Sherry Hogshead matured Glen Elgin in Speyside.
Nose - Subtle sherry, and very oaky. Shows oak polish, ripe pears and some cinnamon. Quite a lot of eucalyptus honey as well. A hint of bubblegum in the background. Faint hints of burnt sugar. Nice and lively for such an old malt with a luxurious charm.
Palate - Sherry again, but with a smoky, even very lightly peated profile. Charred oak. Walnut skin and liquorice. Some toffee. Resinous, tannins and hints of mustard seeds. Bitter almonds as well.
Finish - Long, really dry and slightly herbal.
