SMWS 85.33 (Glen Elgin 9 yo 2006/2016)

2016, SMWS
Single malt - Speyside
Very pale gold
60.1% ABV

Nose: Magic marker, pears, sawdust, apples, cranberries, hints of cherries. With water, grassy, more sawdust, beeswax. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, watery, loose. 
Tasting:  Sour . Lemons, grapefruit, sawdust, cranberries, hints of ginger. With water, less sour, raspberries, vanilla, cinnamon, hints of butter. 
Finish: Long. Lemons, grapefruit, dessicated coconut, apples. 


It was promising on the nose at the beginning, with a lot of fruit. But then the woody notes took over, masking a lot of the other flavours. I had to work hard to get anywhere underneath that sheath of wood. There's other notes as well, but in the end it was just too hard work.


Not bad.
