Description

Mossburn Vintage Casks No 19 Glen Elgin is a third party bottling of Speyside Single Malt Whisky. It is part of Mossburn’s Vintage Casks range, a collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks.  This is bottled at cask strength of 59% ABV.

Mossburn Distillers & Blenders is a brand new Scotch whisky project owned by Marussia Beverage which is part of the empire controlled by Swedish billionaire Frederik Paulsen. The company is headquartered at Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders on the site of the former Jedforest Hotel. Their new distillery, called Reivers Distillery, will be one of the first new distilleries to be built in the Borders for over 150 years. Mossburn have also established Torabhaig Distillery on the Isle of Skye, which opened in 2017 (the second distillery on Skye after Highland Park). The parent company also own the Kaikyo Distillery in Japan which produces Hatozaki whiskies. Not content with this, they have also created the peaty Caisteal Chamuis whisky range. The first Mossburn bottlings were released in 2017.

Building a whisky distillery and waiting for whisky to come online (the spirit has to be aged for at least 3 years before it can even be called whisky) is a long term project. So, in the meantime, Mossburn have started the ball rolling by bottling a small collection of ever-changing single malt whiskies and two permanent blended malts, an Island and Speyside, with bespoke cask bills. There are also some very limited occasional single cask bottlings.

Tasting Notes

Mossburn Vintage Casks No 19 Glen Elgin 2008 10YO , bottled at cask strength, will benefit from a dash of water to bring out the light oaky vanilla notes, allspice and a little dried orange.  The palate opens out with some slightly forthright wood which influences the fruit and some soft malty sweetness with a little fire at the finish.
