Whisky Reviews for ElsBurn The Distillery Edition

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.10 points

  1. Gogopro52 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Pretty awesome drop. If it were filled in barrel strength, there would certainly be 94-96 points.

    This bottling is pretty close to perfect daily dram.

    Bought 6 bottles on Friday, 4 survived the weekend with my brother intact.

    Super done with a great PLV and a more than successful re-design. The bottle looks fantastic, the color is what I want from a sherry malt, the 46% are not too weak and not too strong and typical aromas of raisin, caramel, wood and orange with really good complexity.
    Deanston PX has competition

  2. JoshNRW scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Very powerful for 46%, a lot of intense dark spice, sherry sweetness comes immediately afterwards in the middle part, there is also fermented fruitiness, really very intense spicy sherry sweetness, super round and great for the percentages
    • Taste
      Here too, intensive spicy, good sherry sweetness, super round and for 46% top quality. Better than expected, really intense, round malt.
    • Finish
      Remains on the palate for a medium length

  3. Sleinn nam Ffoh scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very nice composition that offers everything that I particularly appreciate about Elsburn. In barrel strength it would have been over 90 points.

    Not a sweet sherry, but spicy. The raisins come through. I usually know the taste from the rum corner.
