Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 1991 CA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.05 points

  1. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A profile that was missing in my bar. He goes off the beaten track, and the influence of rum brings his good sides without the bad ones (in my eyes)
    • Nose
      A nose well imbued with rum scents. All the better, it's the nose I love in brown rum (and not the mouth that I find too sweet).
      Cane sugar, floral freshness. After aeration, a little dusty wood.
    • Taste
      This mouth is the missing link between the virgin oak profile and the sherry profile. A little wood, yellow fruit compote, sweet sweetness (the leg of rum, without being too much?), Some spicy spices.
    • Finish
      Final quite short. The dusty and sweet wood resurfaced, giving an antique side as a last impression.

  2. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Full and fruity nose, with plenty of citrus fruits and orchard fruits in evidence alongside toffee and vanilla and a touch of woody oak. The rum cask doesn`t seem to have left as much of an influence as other rum cask whiskies I`ve tried (e.g. Balvenie). Fruity and sweet on the palate, but also fairly mellow. Long, warming finish with hints of icing sugar at the very end. A most enjoyable, very easy to drink whisky.
