Whisky Reviews for Glen Els 2007

  1. Dieter_W scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Who likes him, he liked my wife.
    • Nose
      Well that's the case with the Harzer scooter,
      sweet - even sticky sweet, lots of dark fruits, marzipan, sweet cherries,
      Brown sugar.
    • Taste
      Unfortunately for me a disappointment.
      Now the pappig sweetness comes out even better.
      For me rather a liqueur.
    • Finish
      Fast, short, sweet and pretty flat. If he was not so cute he would not have a finish at all

  2. matts did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Wrong Photo or Duplication with Glen Els 2008 The Journey (WID 36175)? In the photo here is the First Journey 2008-2012 shown in 0.5l, not 0.7l. Was there actually a first journey with 0.7l? And then still bottled in 2011? MW not ... Which bottling is meant here?

  3. Hemdl scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Overall, a very pleasant whisky, with an extremely good price-performance ratio (currently just under 40 €). In the finish unfortunately a bit short and flat, but very versatile in the nose. The "Journey" definitely does not have to hide behind its comparable bottlings from Scotland (eg Glenmorangie) and does better for me personally.
    A great introduction to the Glen Els series!
    • Nose
      Sweet fruits, light spice. Few floral notes, but of course the wine notes outweigh. With time some toffee / caramel.
      For a whisky of this age wonderfully complex nose and extremely versatile. I like it!
    • Taste
      A very soft and mild start prepare the way for a wonderful sweetness. Here you will find a dominant toffee / caramel taste, which you already knew from the nose. Behind it a light red wine note, which gives the whole a stronger / darker touch. Delicious!
    • Finish
      Here, unfortunately, a bit disappointing, but at a high level. The sweetness flies quite fast, the finish is accordingly short and mild.

    Sorry to bother you, but there wasn't any JOURNEY Bottling with 47.2%abv!
