Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 1975 WMS

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.95 points

  1. magic_slim scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Excellent whisky. Only the finish is a little disappointing.
    • Nose
      Plenty of fruity aromas, oak, malt and caramel at first nosing. Dried pears, sweet melons, prunes, stewed fruit (peaches) ... what a lovely nose!
    • Taste
      Smooth with a delicate spicy  taste at first mouthfeel. Oaky with notes of black tea and fresh green tree bark. At first all the fruity aromas from the nose appeared to have disappeared. At the second sip there is some juicy fruitiness again. Very nice and pleasant.
    • Finish
      Medium long and spicy with a dry aftertaste.

    einfach genial Nase und Gaumen treffen sehr meinen Geschmack - den Abgang kann ich verzeihen
    • Nose
      Honey, Sweet very elegant apple and grape notes, waxy, complex oak tones with herbs, especially nutmeg and furniture polish, sawed old pew, grated tropical wood, beeswax, sawdust, mint, ginger, delicate smoke, a fine fresh acidity, rose petals, geranium leaves, jasmine flowers
    • Taste
      Blossoms, oak, fruity sweet-sour level, Old Bottle flavor with some cardboard, old citrus notes, black tea, a bit dry on the palate - beautiful tannins
    • Finish
      der Abgang bringt nichts Neues und ist nicht sonderlich lang
