    Lovely stuff.
    • Nose
      Smells coastal to me, reminds me of Caol Ila, I wonder how much peat is in here?

      Brine also, its like Caol Ila light?

      Some fruit mixed in with a touch of paraffin, lemon, honey and dark orange marmalade.
    • Taste
      Spicy and powerful for around 47%, it is also creamy, lovely mouthful.

      Peaches and cream, apricot and some candied sweetness. Very faint peat, less than the nose suggested.
    • Finish
      Medium length on a juicy sweetness.

  5. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    An excellent Speysider, totally in line with earlier Glen Elgin 1975. Plenty of fruits and herbs. Exactly 50% of what a full bottle would cost so here's an opportunity to experience this profile without breaking the bank.
    • Nose
      Great profile, very polished. Lots of furniture polish really. It takes a while to open up. Then it shows subdued yet elegant fruits (melon, yellow apple) and honey. There's a soft herbal side to it as well: mint, heather and chamomile.
    • Taste
      Gentle and fruity at first (pear, citrus, apricot) but quickly gaining spiciness (pepper, liquorice). Some waxy notes and a little oak resin, sure.
    • Finish
      Long, still pretty fruity with hints of herbal tea.
