    A consistently harmonious, round malt. I like this Elsburn style.
    Great taste and great nose.
    • Nose

      Lots of fruit like plums, cherries, strawberries, a bit musty like a dusty old attic, tobacco, chocolate, plus vanilla, baking spices, freshly baked brown bread, all very soft and gentle. In the background, a subtle note of liquorice and again sweet vanilla-cherry tobacco
    • Taste

      Full, dark fruity and also slightly powerful attack in the mouth. Syrup-like fruits of plums, dates, oranges. In addition something like wild berry jam. Oak spice is noticeable through a slight tingle, but is not overly dominant. Together with chocolate, wood provides a slight tart note. Over time, these wood and chocolate notes develop into light roasted aromas. Toasted almonds, coffee and some caramelized fruit. In the background some malt, toffee, tobacco.

      Medium-length finish, very subtle smoky note, light fruit of tangerines, oranges, some chocolate,

    If you are looking for a nice sherry malt from Hercynian, but found the boards too sweet, you should look here.
    Beautifully balanced between fruit (orange, dried fruit, fruitcake) and oak, this malt stands out from many.
    It is wonderfully ripe and the mild Cask Strength suits it well.

    The price is hard right for 10 yo single cask in quality!

    Warning: whining at a high level :-)

    The weakest of the old Elsen so far...

    After Übermalt's latex and bondage, hits like Darkside and the X's, I was expecting just such an aromatic bang...

    ...and was taught better. With a malt that is more subtle, offers less contrast, less corners. It is not Art Nouveau, but the Biedermeier among the above. Without question a really great malt with nice notes of fruitcake, orange zest, wood, vanilla but atypical for Glen Els Sherry little thick sticky raisin. Of course, Cream isn't PX either.

    All in all, this is also an excellent representative from local forests, but please please please, dear Harzer, never stop producing benchmarks like latex or X :-)
