  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nicely fresh, sweet yet pretty strong as well. Nice dram, for 46% Abv it has quite some body, good Speysider.

      Fresh, fruity, citrus, vanilla, apples, then also some raspberry and a little floral.

  4. Totoro scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very pretty and well-aged Speysider with notes of tart fruit (grapefruit and bitter orange) on the nose and fine-aromatic, moderately-spiced oak on the palate. The finish hints at its age.

  8. RobIsrael scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    Very complex, refined malt, the waxy notes adds even more depth. It does remind me a little bit of the Imperial 1995 casks.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Ripe apples, pears, apricots, some spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, little bit of honey and menthol.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Wax, ripe apples, pears, spices and honey
    • Finish
      88 88
      Ripe, apples, pears, honey, tobacco leaves and wax

  9. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A very mature Glen Elgin dispite the light character of this worm-tubed whisky.
    Thanks for the courtesy Norbs!
    • Nose
      Nuts oil, almond paste, dusty, very mature and honey. Very fruity with apple, pear, lychees, peach and tangerines. Also floral notes which make me think of white/pink orchids.
    • Taste
      Fruity, again with a lot of pear, honey, nuts, some wax and woody - saw dust. Some light caramel tones and later more tea-ish with spices - nutmeg and cloves.
    • Finish
      Medium drying with citrus - lemon and creamy fruits.
