  1. Malthead19 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    - a very intense strong whisky with a still
    very extremely noticeable alcoholic note
    - needs a lot of water, then they will too
    pleasant sweet fruity aromas released
    - unfortunately again a confirmation that with the
    Change from Glen Els to Elsburn also in terms of taste
    a change took place, albeit in a negative way
    Senses
    - Price much too expensive at around 100 €, there is still a lot missing
    in terms of taste quality for the price
    justify
    - no comparison to a Glen Els TOKAJI Cask, COZY
    WINTER (2015) or IBERICA
    - Far from a 9 in front
    • Nose
      Intense, powerful start, slightly sweet, grape, but still very strong alcohol odor
    • Taste
      oW: very strong yet burning voluminous attack, spreads quickly over the whole palate, a real power pack, but definitely needs a lot of water;

      mW: significantly more pleasant, aromas of oak and sweetish wine notes come to the fore, peach, the taste or the various aromas are no longer suppressed by a superimposed burning, pleasant sticky fruity kind on the palate, lasts a very long time
    • Finish
      long, strong, heavy aromatic finish;
      long spicy oak-heavy aftertaste
