Whisky reviews for Glen Elgin 2010 ElD

16 users have left 16 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 85.28 points.

  1. Tomatin1980 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    A decent dram, but reading the reviews here I truly wonder what associations people have with "tropic fruit". This is an alcohol-hot single malt, bottled 5 years ahead of its time. Very average, this Glen Elgin is saved by an decent balance on the palate. The faint banana and pineapple in the 1000 mile distance don't make up for its middle-of-the-roadness.

  4. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A real fruit basket here, filled with tropical fruits and citrus fruits. Quite some alcohol, giving it a lot of character. Very pleasant Elgin.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Very fresh and fruity, tropical fruits, citrus, pretty some alcohol. Full scent,
    • Taste
      86 86
      Quite smooth now, compared to the nose. Very fruity again, tropical fruits. Later on some orange and honey.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Some more punch now, and all on the tropical fruits again. Pretty long, some wine gums. Later on more orange as well.

  5. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    An average Elgin I’d say. It’s tasteful and classic Elgin but nothing to really remember tomorrow
    • Nose
      Very fruity like you’d expect from an Elgin. Citrus and orchard fruits. Soft spices like vanilla and a whiff of clove.
    • Taste
      Quite spirity and alcoholic on the palate. It misses finesse and integration.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Sawdust, coriander, salmiak. Quite dry but okay.

  7. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A sweet and delicate whisky. A perfect dram for the summer day!
    It is a good whisky, although it could have had some benefit if it was bottled later.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sweet, hints of white wine, some fruit, a rather delicate nose. There is a touch of marzipan in here and fresh cut wood.
      Some grass notes and heater too.
    • Taste
      86 86
      A fruit bomb. As if you drink from a can of tropical fruits, but with more alcohol. Little dusty after a while.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Short-medium long length. Some wood, again the fruitiness is here. Also the bourbon influences are showing up here. Some vanilla and toffee.

    Very affordable and nice summer dram.
    • Nose
      87 87
      White wine; the first things my son indicated when we poured this dram in the glass. White wine is definitely there in combination with topical fruit and vanilla. Tasted it pure first and I added a few drops of water later on. This does not really change things.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Good body and an acceptable abv. Tropical fruit, green fruit again as well as vanilla.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long finish. Could have been longer.

  16. Petrovitski scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    (Tasted at the liquor store)
    A great price / quality stunner.
    For me a perfect daily whisky that can be enjoyed a lot!
    • Nose
      90 90
      A sea of tropical fruit comes out of the glass.
      As if you were smelling a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
      Mango, pineapple, too much to mention.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Yes, even here the fruit is what the clock strikes. The alcohol is well integrated. No water is required for me. A sweetness and many white wine flavors. The taste is not quite up to the nose, but it comes close.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Well, not everything is perfect about this whisky. The aftertaste is unfortunately rather short. The advantage to this is that you want another sip very quickly.
