  1. HunterRomario scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I took the sample from the whisky festival from Saxon Radebeul. Nice whisky, a good experience, it was my first tasting Glen Elgin and 10 € for a fool came to me as a reasonable price.
    • Nose
      Interesting, cinnamon-like and windy scent. Honey-fruity sweetness, dried apricots, sweet spiciness, fresh wood, sawdust. The aroma is very pleasant and fresh and fresh, I would not have matured for 30 years. (87 b)
    • Taste
      Honey-savory taste with fresh wood, at the same time graceful, is stronger, I guess at least 53%, but only 45.1% alcohol. Vanilla, fruit sweetness. The taste fits well with the scent. (87 b)

  3. Jeep51 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Delicate and light whisky
    • Nose
      Rather delicate. Honey, wax, marzipan. A fruity side also: plums and fruits with brandy. The alcohol is a little felt.
    • Taste
      It is also light and marked by alcohol. Almond paste, English candies, some yellow fruits and a hint of exoticism as well as spices (very light): cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Medium long on a mix of yellow fruits and a slight smoke

    • Nose

    • Taste

    • Finish
      dried fruits, malt, quite long
