  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    OK. Very different, the Glen Elgin is no longer there, the barrel dominates. The flavors are refreshingly unusual, but the Naked Ex Bourbon Glen Elgin before were somehow more suitable for me.
    • Nose
      The nose is really special, tobacco, very sweet and spicy, cedar wood, a little balsamic, meaty, already very driven by the finish. Headstrong, but not bad.
    • Taste
      Spicy, raisins, tobacco, patchouli, syrup, wood.
    • Finish
      Tart, spicy finish, oak and sometimes very sweet with tart hints.

    COLOR: amber (without dye)

    - a very aromatic complex 10 year old whisky
    - for 60€ you can't complain, good quality and very pleasant to drink, definitely recommended
    • Nose
      Grapes, aromatic, Malaga raisins, complex and intense, smells older than 10 years.
    • Taste
      without water: complex, very powerful attack, grape, oak, very aromatic, dark fruits, chocolate, can take a few drops of water well, opens up a bit more and is more pleasant
    • Finish
      medium length complex finish ;
      long chocolaty aftertaste

  7. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Overall a nice whisky, not a high roller but for it's price it is ok. Give it time te breathe, you will see aroma's will develope.

      At first I thought it was a disapointment but after adding a drop of water it opened and wow, spices, fruits, sweetness. I realy like it!
    • Taste
      87 87
      Again the spices, fruit, wood, lovely.
    • Finish
      85 85
      For my taste the spices remain too long in the back of my mouth, end of the tongue and palete. Little later the sherry is there but if it was al little more balanced it would have had more points from me.

  8. RJKrueger scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A very interesting Glen Elgin, which of course lives from the special barrels, with a reasonable price-performance ratio for me. The barrel strength carries the aroma very nicely, so you shouldn't add too much water.
    • Nose
      86 86
      First give a little time so that the alcohol does not dominate. Then a very interesting and pleasant, fresh aroma of light fruits such as mirabelle plums and yellow plums spreads, underlaid with a certain herbal note and spice.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Now, with a powerful start, a little more spicy notes of the distillery character come through, accompanied by the unbelievable sweetness of the Moscatel octave barrels. With a little water it becomes a little rounder.
    • Finish
      85 85
      I would classify the finish as medium. The sweetness fades away first, spicy notes remain a bit without showing any bitter components.

  11. bikenerd scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Tasted a sample: Nice, intense malt. Of course very cask-driven. I like it.

    Personally I do not like the marketing idea of 500ml bottles and will not buy them.
