Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 1975 TWA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.48 points

  1. ALouis scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Color: Gold

    Nose :
    Nose end, elegant and at the same time aromatic, pretty performance.

    We have a superb
    melted yellow fruit, peach, honey, some waxy notes
    and floral, a very light smoked to finish on spices,
    mainly pepper.

    At the 2nd nose some
    iodized keys appear.

    Mouth :
    The mouth is less refined, stiffer.

    The fruity is more
    discreet and more on autumn fruits, apple and quince.

    Cereals are
    present then it evolves to sweets and honey.

    Average final on the
    smoked and cereals.

    Too bad that the mouth
    is not in phase with the nose.

    The addition of water is not necessary. A little bit water strengthes the fruit flavors. A very, very good whisky. A great bottling of a Glen Elgin
