GLEN ELGIN 1985 85.27 'REFRESHING ELDERFLOWER FIZZ' - THE SCOTCH MALT WHISKY SOCIETY

It's been a long week, so no introduction to this review other than its another nice one from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society. Only 12 bottles of this made it to Denmark.

Here we go...

Glen Elgin 1985 85.27 (02.05.1985/xx.xx.2013) 'Refreshing Elderflower Fizz' 28yo, 48,6%, refill hogshead, 237 bottles, The Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Colour is pale amber

Nose:
Spicy, honey, vanilla, very sweet with some overripe apple and orange

Taste:
Creamy - almost oily, natural caramel, aniseed, peppery oaky nip. More citrus (orange, mainly)comes through after a while, honey also creeps in again, but also producing some herbal notes on the finish.

This is very nice - best GE I've had, probably...

88/100!
