Farewell to a fine bourbon cask single malt, Glen Elgin 22 YO Batch 2 from Boutique-y. Well balanced, just the right amount of oak bitterness to counter the honey and light fruits. Bright and clean with a lingering finish....Whisky Pop Rocks at 48.2% abv.

@paddockjudge Good to get those last seven drops out of there. Glen Elgin wasn’t on my whisky radar until last year. Now I can’t get enough.

Finished this very pleasant Balblair ‘91 Third Release 46% abv., natural colour, non-chill filtered. Surprisingly bright for a 26/27 YO single malt. This is the second bottle I’ve drained… one or two resting in the bunker wink

@paddockjudge this is a thread I would LOVE to be posting on more often. To make way for new bottles in my bursting cabinet.

@Nozinan, I think a yard sale would create some space in your cabinet. wink You could do it in the afternoon preceding our next tasting.

Focusing on low-fill bottles in my cabinet and emptying them to create space for a couple of new acquisitions.

This 18 YO blended malt is a favourite of my son. He was weaned on Macallan 12 YO sherry cask (old brown box, not the new blue box sulfur-bombs), his favourite distillery release. Glen Grant bourbon casks are in his wheel house too. This blended malt leans heavily towards the sherry cask style, at a cask strength of 46.4% abv. and weighty mouth feel, it is an easy sipper. No sulfur, but as good dose of minerality on top of apricot marmalade. Nicely balanced with moderate complexity. A hint of honey in the entry and slight oak bitterness on the exit. Short to medium clean finish. One in the bunker and one at the young lad’s house….. should have bought a case of this one, not at all hard to drink.

A tip of the hat to Igor at Heads&Tails, Canada for importing this gem under the label of The Whisky Agency.
