The ImpEx Collection
14 Year Old 2006
Glen Elgin Cask #9800012
Fully matured in a Bourbon barrel.
Don’t let the pale color fool you. This whisky is both complex and alive with vibrant fruity notes and a rich malty backbone.
Nose: Fresh and bright with a basketful of citrus: satsumas, kumquats, limes, and lemons, plus banana, shortbread, and sun-dried linen.
Palate: Vivacious citrus zest and banana cream pie with graham cracker crust and a crushed nut topping. With a few drops of water, the bright fruit transforms to richer complexity: flamed orange peel, lemon tart, bananas foster.
Finish: Fresh citrus becomes dried, ending with green apple in a savory-sweet crust.

Glen Elgin is normally a pretty tame undertaking, but at full strength it presents with more punch and presence, offering a nose of toasty, well-sweetened cereal, barrel char, and fresh grass. The palate is surprisingly sweet, that breakfast cereal note popping brightly with a drizzle of honey atop a light touch of smoke, walnut oil, and some Christmas spice. Chimney soot notes linger on the finish — in a pleasant, wintry way that makes this warming malt feel destined for holiday time. 105 proof. A-
