  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      89 89
      Quite simple, but a nice fruitiness to this. More yellow fruits. At times, some zestiness. I haven't tried too many non-sherry cask Glen Elgin, so this should be interesting for me.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Like a sweet riesling. A persistent, round, fruitiness, almost candy-like. Sweet, green grapes, various pears, hint of apricots, with a drop of honey. Simple, but good.
    • Finish
      89 89
      True to the taste. Final score would be 89. Would need a bit extra complexity for a 90.

  7. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The palate is stunning, complex and full of flavour.
    The nose is just dull, nothing stands out and has nothing to impress.
    • Nose
      78 78
      Not overly expressive, quite a bland and boring nose. Green apples and other unripe, green mango sweets.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Bright and vibrant, nectarines and plums on the hard and slightly sour side. Even some touches of green kiwis, again sour side. Sweetness creeping in, honey dripping through the fruits. Now a floral touch, some rose petals.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Honey, grass and fresh meadows.

      Very fruity, apples, grassy. Also some caramel sweetness, lemon, peach and pineapple.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Pretty strong, pepper, fruity, orange. Honey and vanilla, some lemon as well. Full taste.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Still some pepper, sweetfruity, peach, orange.powerful, pretty long, with some sweet honey. Finish is getting longer and longer as time passes.
