    I live in the hope that such sweetheart will come out as ELSBURN.

    Simply delicious. Raisin, orange, caramel, milk chocolate, peach, wood, great estate with solid PLV.

  2. whisky313 did not rate this whisky Specialist

    After the dispute with the SWA (Scotch Whisky Association) last filled with an old name.
    Further productions of the non-smoky distillate are billed under the name ELSBURN.

    Finest sherry whisky. In the blind tasting, friends said it was a Glendronach or Edradour.

    Excelent barrels. Very intense nutty sherry pleasure.

    Not more, but no less points has earned this great single malt.

    It's a pity because of the name, but nice that it will generally go on with the quality. Whether Elsburn or Glen Els I do not care as a connoisseur, I actually think the new name even better.
    Due to the BURN (German BORN for Quelle) it is a bit more German and yet it is far enough away from what often comes in this bottle in the bottle (with the exception of the Kilianer and a few smaller others) :)

    The substance itself is beautiful rosy, oily, spicy, balanced, just delicious and dangerous "easy to drink".
