Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 1995 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.00 points

  1. MackenzieOB95 scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    Nose: Very fruity at first. Citrus and apple coming through. Sweet and mellow. A slight hint of spice as well. Some chocolate too.

    Palate: Sweetness comes through immediately but the spice isn’t far behind. A little oak. Very smooth and has a little smokiness to it, probably the oak.

    Finish: Oaky finish. But sweetness and spice are still lingering and their presence is known. Nice, smooth, and dry.

    Overall Score: 89. I love this. It’s delicious and has an elegance to it because of the age.

    I bought it a little over a year ago at a small liquor store based on the recommendation of the woman who worked there. I told her it was my birthday weekend and she wanted me to treat myself. I’m glad I took her advice. Absolutely recommend.

    • Nose
      95 95
      9.5/9.5

      Floral, fruity, and rich. A really deep, powdery nose that smells sharper than its 46%. Fatty violets, honeysuckle. // Sweeter, berries, creamy.
    • Taste
      70 70
      6.5/7

      Sharp and honeyed-tannic. Kind of tastes like it spent too much time in a barrel. A slight bitterness around the edges. // Loses some bitterness eventually, but weirdly also some of the honey. Mainline Speyside.
