  1. rottendon scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    The nose is not really mine, but it's pretty clean in the mouth. But nothing special either, rather one among many.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    Glen Elgin, whatever ...
    • Nose
      82 82
      Immediately after pouring yellow grits and a little malt, clearly fruit acid, strong on the nose. After standing for a while, it turns strongly into sour, clear fermentation notes and a good dash of vanilla. The alcohol tickles my nose a bit. With warmth he starts to bite his nose and the acid goes to extremes. Later the whole thing harmonizes again with yellow apples as the central note.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Extremely powerful start with a clear alcoholic burn, but also clean apple notes with a dark sweetness that is reminiscent of beet syrup. There is also some oak to the rear, but this is very moderate. In the second sip, oak, which goes well with the apples, has something of old calvados.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is not particularly long and it dries significantly. However, as expected, it warms the chest vigorously.
