  3. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This is a very fruity Glen Elgin for the summer, which
    surprised me very pleasantly. And it is a swimmer. Thanks, Jan, for the sample. I would like another one for when the sun
    comes out again.
    • Nose
      The nose is sweet and fruity, but piquant. All sorts
      of yellow fruit, tropical, breaks through slowly. Citrus, pineapple, mango.
      Reminds me a bit of those summer fruit salads my kids often put together. Some caramel
      too. Syrup as if from tinned fruit. Very pleasant.
      Water makes it a little less tropical and even offers a grassy side. Nuts, as
      well.
    • Taste
      On
      the palate too, it is piquant and spicy. This is to be expected. But the tropical fruit emerges immediately,
      wonderfully sweet and succulent. A bit of woodspice and light tannins take care
      of the balanced. A
      bit syrupy. Diluted, it remains wonderfully sweet. It
      can take water, no problem.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and warm. Honeysweet on pineapple, cinnamon and oak, even with water.
