Apples, pears in the nose with light citrus. Polished wood.

Okay, this palate is just really tasty. Quite oaky in the best of ways. Licorice/anise with a tinge of sweetness to let you know it's there. That Glen Elgin signature tangerine is there too, subdued in a soft oak box.

It's interesting to note that my brother joined us for the Glen Elgin meeting, and while he's not a big fan of single malts (at all, really), he kept going back to this all night.
 
Extremely drinkable and delicious.

Lots of fruits in th nose (peaches, red apples, and necarines) alond with some smoke and spice.  Gets more oaky on the palate with bourbony vanilla sweetness and a bit floral.  Sweet citrus finish that hangs around a bit. 

 

Light and sweet, delicate and fruity.  Solid B+
