Lady of the Glen Elgin 16 Year Old Rivesalts Finish
An unusual combination of Hogshead maturation with Rivesaltes finishing has produced this extraordinary whisky.
Rivesaltes is an appellation for the historic sweet wines of eastern Roussillon, in the deep south of France. Famed for their red-berry influence and high sugar content, they give a unique flavour to the usual light and fruity spirit from Glen Elgin.
Notes of red berry jam, treacle toffee and liquorice are abundant and an extremely long, chocolatey finish containing nuts, cranberry and plums.
