Glen Elgin 1998 Rare Find 23 Year Old
Glen Elgin was built in at the very end of the 19th century, with distilling commncing in 1900. Its success was sporadic in the early days, but it eventually joined DCL in 1930 as part of their White Horse Distillers arm. Unusually, the distillery had no electricity until 1950, and was entirely powered by paraffin until then. Although a key component in their blends, the fruity character of Glen Elgin was deemed worthy of being bottled as a single malt too, appearing as a 12 year old under White Horse branding from as early as the 1970s. Today the 12 year old remains the only permanent release, with limited edition distillery bottlings like this increasingly sought after.
This whisky was distilled in 1998 and matured in a single cask for 23 years before being bottled in 2022.
