Fruit explosion with a light smokieness on the nose. Mouth is full of tropical fruits with a hint of Seabreeze, oils and beeswax. Finish is very long and the tropical fruits stay there until the end.

A very divisive whisky. There are people that will rate it very high or very low, depending what motivates them. It is not bad, nor is it exceptional. Clearly quite old. Trending towards cognac, but more leather. Leather, dates, prunes, baking chocolate, bitter chocolate orange, drying and quite tannic. Feels weak and underpowered, which I would say is the biggest drawback.

Strong citrus and herbs on the nose. Palate keeps what the nose promises. Exceptionally intensive.

Fantastische Nase mit wunderbaren Pot Still - Gewürzen, Leder und Sherrynoten. Ungemein cremig und voll auf der Zunge, traumhaft langer Abgang.

Wunderbarer Malt. In der Nase besonders auffallend mit seinen blumigen Zitrusnoten, im Geschmack abwechslungsreich aber immer würzig, fruchtig und köstlich. Abgang bringt das ganze gut über die Ziellinie, ist aber nicht ganz auf dem selben Niveau wie Aroma und Taste. 92/100

    wundervoll. Frische Orangen, Zitronen, Limetten. Zimt, Ribiseln im Hintergrund, leicht salzig, Mürbteig mit karamellisiertem braunen Zucker. Dessertaromen mischen sich dazu. Pralinenfüllung, Marzipan, Bitterschokolade. Tolle Eichenwürze. Honig und Schokolade, mit blumigen Zitrusaromen verwoben.
  • Taste

    Viel Würze, viel Frucht. Schwankt zwischen süß, sauer und herb. Eher auf der frischen Seite mit Noten von Limetten und Grapefruit. Dunkle Bitterschokolade, Mandeln, ein wenig Salbei. Bitterorangenmarmelade. Jeder Schluck anders. Manchmal wunderbar zitrusfruchtig sauer, manchmal Schokoladig und süß. Manchmal beides. Immer köstlich, jedoch. Frucht wird teilweise sogar marmeladig süß, ohne an dem sauren Stich was zu einzubüßen. Toll.

    Fruchtig, hochprozentige Bitterschokolade, frische Orange. Würzig, Zimt hallt nach, dazu würzige Zwetschgen und Orangenschale. Etwas Lakritz.

A very tasty and moreish Glen Elgin with its juicy red and dark fruits and usual sherry notes. Great whisky.
  • Nose
    Dried fruits (raisins, dates), red and dark berries, nuts and a few spices. Hints of tobacco, coffee and dark chocolate.
  • Taste
    Intense and juicy. Red and dark fruits (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries,...), dark chocolate and coffee, nuts and spices. Leathery and mentholated notes. A touch of oak. With water, pastry notes.
  • Finish
    Long, fruity and pastry-ish (red and dark berries pie ?), spicy.
