In the heart of Speyside, some 3 kilometers from the village of Elgin, you’ll find the Glen Elgin Distillery that today produces mostly for the White Horse blend. There are a couple of official bottlings to be found, but it’s with the independents that you’ll find many more. Let us try this 14 Year Old from the Un-Chillfiltered Collection from Signatory, diluted as usual to 46%.

The nose bursts with white fruit, mostly apples. Some grasses and some peach rear their heads, while caramel leaves a strong impression.

A mild peppery note precedes the fruit on the palate. It turns a bit candy-like, but that does not disturb. It is quite sweet though. A bitterness as if from grapefruit appears at the back of the throat.

The finish is soft and warm, but not very long.

Completely docile, but still a nice aperitif in my book.
