  1. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [June, 2019] Glen Elgin bottlings were very rare several years ago but they became regular since the more popular distilleries offer (almost) no casks to IBs any longer (or if they do so, the prices are out this planet). This is a review of a small sample...

    ...and this dram is rather simple but easy quaffable. So forget about your whisky analysing skills and have it when in good company with non-whisky nerds. They will like it, most probably...
    • Nose
      87 87
      The colour is pale straw and the nose offers a modern citric fruits and green apples profile that reminds me somewhat of the typical Bladnoch nose. It is nice but rather simple, after several sniffs it gets less interesting - nonetheless enjoyable...
    • Taste
      88 88
      The taste is barley sugary sweet with fruits (mainly apples) and some waxy and tea-ish flavours. Again, it is rather simple but very quaffable, to be honest. After some chewing a tasty note of milk chocolate develops.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The initial mouthfeel is warming but just little coating without distracting moments. The finish is of medium length and adds no new impressions. Water releases chalky-mineral aromas in the nose but flattens the taste quickly. I like the neat dram best.

    • Taste
      86 86
      Sweet and some fruit.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Dry orange skin at the end, a little bit light.
