Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 2006 ElD

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.72 points

  1. Dramtastic.86 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Interesting dram that needs some time. The sweet notes come more to the front in time. If you like Clynelish, Glenlossie and Linkwood, this might be a dram for you.

      Fresh, candy sweet, pineapple, green appels, candle wax, ripe banana, malty, honey and vanilla
    • Taste
      87 87
      More of the sweet wax notes, ripe stone fruits like apples and pears, lemongrass, banana, pineapple, vanilla, honey, some spice notes like cardamom, menthol and a leather note.
    • Finish
      84 84
      mid finish, with waxy notes, vanilla toffee, honey, malty and spices. Again that cardamom, but also some white pepper.

    slurred nose, but very tasty - usually on the young Speysides the opposite is true

    • Nose
      87 87
      Sour and sweet, Apple, needs some time in the glass to develop. Vanilla, hints of candysweetness. After a few minutes the banana comes trough.
    • Taste
      87 87
      More red Apple, pear. Fruity that goes into freshness and citrus and ginger. Hints of vanilla and ripe banana.
    • Finish
      84 84
      a dry, white whinish finish. Not overly long but Sharp a bitter.
