Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 2007 WIN

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.29 points

  1. BasG94 scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    One word: HONEY (comes to surface with a touch of water). Delicious

  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Proper spirit (Glen Elgin is fairly underrated in my opinion) filled into a good cask, albeit a little too vanilla heavy.
    • Nose
      Plenty of vanilla sweetness and honey accompanied by sweet pastries, green apple and a little lemon zest. Just a whiff of minerality.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel highlighted by vanilla custard, quince marmalade and soft notes of orange peel. A pinch of white pepper, followed by cloves and tinned peaches. Pretty sweet, but not too much so.
    • Finish
      Some saw dust and more sweet vanilla. Medium.

      Just a little too strong with a drop of water just a little better

    Ooh, a proper cask maturation from WIN! Sorry for getting a bit cynical, but this is the way whisky is supposed to be presented imho. No finishing just for the sake of finishing anymore please... and yes if this means lighter coloured and/or lighter flavoured whiskies I'm very much ok with that.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Honey, vanilla and cookie dough, sour apple, lemon, some peach and overripe apricot, slightly dusty and fresh wood notes.
    • Taste
      86 86
      A full and oily mouthfeel. Vanilla, honey, ripe apple, pear, some peach, apricot jam, lemon zest, mild pepper, nutmeg, a bit of sawdust. Development is a bit hot on alcohol.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium length: a short lived fruitiness of peach and apricot, vanilla, honey, shifting to spicy bitter wood (pepper, clove and ginger). Just a bit too dry.
