Product Description

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.
