Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 1975 Lb

  1. Dirk scored this whisky 87 points Super Administrator

    Ok but average and not the typical 1975 elgin for me. Nose is the best part. Quite one dimensional. But with water it turns almost completely. Still not up with the rest but good enough.

      Nice dunnage nose, oranges and some honey. Floral and burnt wood, caramel. With water the nose open up. More fruity on oranges and pears.

      Fudge and oranges, somewhat bitter. Some woody notes. With water I get loads of oranges, a bit floral. Honey and some black pepper.

      Spicy, mid long finish. With water a bit more fruity. Less spicy and less bitterness. Sweeter with some oak notes.
