2x Glen Elgin 18YO Special Release 2017
1x JW Ghost & Rare - Glenury Royal
Glen Elgin 18yo Special Release 2017:
Part of the Special Releases 2017 line-up, this unusual Glen Elgin expression turns heads for perhaps the most unglamorous of reasons – yeast. Two totally different yeast strains, in fact.
A vatting of two batches, one part of this 18 year old expression made use of Pombe yeast in fermentation, and the other was produced using the more conventional cerevisiae yeast. The first batch was then matured on ex-bodega casks, with the second destined for refill European oak butts.
The result? A temptingly creamy whisky offering a twist on the typical Speyside character. Just 5,352 bottles have been released worldwide.
Nose: Immediately curious, perhaps from the Pombe yeast, there are notes of Greek yoghurt and honey. Fluffy white bread, chèvre, chamomile and hints of violet. Lots of fruit too, apple and blackcurrant lozenges.
Palate: Still creamy and somewhat honeyed, although in a more conventional sense now. A little water then brings out fruitier elements with orchard fruit and orange blossom.
Finish: Nut brittle and a touch of oaky smoke.
Johnnie Walker Ghost & Rare: Glenury Royal:
This third release in Johnnie Walker's Blue Label Ghost & Rare series shines a light on the long-closed Glenury Royal Distillery. As with the previous bottlings (which focussed on Brora and Port Ellen), the rare whisky from this lost distillery sits at the core of the blend. Alongside Glenury Royal's single malt, master blender Dr. Jim Beveridge used malts from Pittyvaich, Glen Elgin, Inchgower, Glenlossie, and Glenkinchie, as well as grains from Cambus and Cameronbridge to build out the expression.
Nose: Fresh orchard fruit (pear, peach and a hint of sharp green apple), savoury olive oil notes and cinder toffee.
Palate: More sherried notes come to the fore here, with dried fruit and cinnamon sticks. Still enjoyably oily, though a floral lightness develops.
Finish: Pastry, apple, black pepper. Chocolatey elements stick around.
