Darkness Glen Elgin 12 Year Old Moscatel Cask Description
This 12-year-old bottled by Darkness is from the Glen Elgin distillery. Like the rest of this series it is finished in specially-coopered sherry octaves, more specifically with this single malt being finished in the Moscatel variety. Octaves are around a quarter the size of an American standard cask, offering intense interaction between the wood and spirit. Bottled at 55.6% ABV and with plenty of robust sherry notes of fruit and spice.
Nose: toffee apple and malt loaf.
Palate: chocolate raisins and stem ginger syrup.
Finish: fresh mint, orange blossom and a warmth of ginger.
