Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 1995 SV

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.06 points

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tasted at a whisky festival early in the lineup.

    A good solid Glen Elgin but perhaps not great. Thick and fruity with a good dose of wood. Not overly memorable to be honest. If Glen Elgin is your jam, then give it a go, but I don’t believe it’s one of their best representations. Price is fair in 2019.

    Tried another sample and thought it was better than I remembered.

    mhhh - I really like dill pickles - but not in whisky - is a false note for me

      Gherkin water - vinegar + herbs, green wood, caramel, lemon rind

      Tree juice, lactic acid, citrus - but also an association with cucumber water - otherwise classic ExBC profile with a lot of citrus influence

      Dessert notes, chocolate brownie, mascarpone cream, lemon zest, rose water - at the end, dill pickles

    Beautiful Fruit Bomb! Citrus, Gherkin, Red-summer fruit, grass and (too much) sugar. Fairly expensive bottle for the quality. Dessert whisky with scoop of vanilla ice cream ... A nice oil aftertaste. Signatory is good at that.
