  1. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Fruity and spicy nose, some dried fruit, oranges, spices/baking spices (vanilla), fine oak notes, slightly sweet, idea of honey and tobacco, fresh fruit.
    Looks elegant and very attractive.

    The perceived aromas are reflected in the taste and finish. Add a little chocolate. A tasty dram!

      Lots of apple, pear, and also little quince indeed, mostly green apple, hints of green banana, honeydew, wet hay, some fresh orchard fruits, little citric, lime zest, minerals, slightly leafy, whiffs of vanilla - really not bad

    • Nose
      89 89
      Apples and pears, it's like quince
      After 4 weeks at the post-tasting, I find it very nutty, like peanut honey bars
    • Taste
      89 89
      It is oily and mouth-filling, and I can taste a pear
    • Finish
      90 90
      The Glen 25 is pleasantly spicy and long, I can attest to a good selection of casks.

      Compared to the 21 year old, however, too expensive in my opinion

    Delicious fruity whisky. This one has been given enough time to grow up. Nice long finish

    What a flavor, heavy, fruity-spicy. Strong in the approach, almost like caramel, vanilla, pear. Soft, round in taste. Long, spicy finish. Very good!
