Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 2007 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.43 points

  1. nosferatu68 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nosing: Nice lime note, enthralled by a breeze of vanilla and a few crumbs of caramel toffee. Over time, the smell of dusty attic is added. Looks nice and light and aromatic, but by no means flat.

    Taste: The limes are there immediately, the vanilla whizzes past citrus fruits and at the same time a breeze of freshly cut hay is involved. On the second sip, there is also a bit of the dusty attic, but also a bit of caramel and milk chocolate.

    Finish: The finish is unexpectedly long and everything that can be found on the palate also reappears in the finish.

    Conclusion: A very nice, light summer whisky that does not overwhelm, but still brings with it a certain complexity and variety of flavors

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nicely fresh and fruity whisky, not too complex but just a nice summereve dram. Nothing wrong with it.

      Very fresh and fruity, citrus, sweets. Grassy notes, and some floral aroma's. Then some detergent, 'Dreft lemon'.
    • Taste
      84 84
      At first pretty strong, fruity and sweet. Citrus, orange, honey, vanilla. A little of licorice. Later on it gets smoother.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Now pretty smooth, fruity and sweet. Some orange and honey still, still some floral notes. Middle long. Later on the finish gets more powerful.
