  6. hartist scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A pretty and rather delicate Glen Elgin marked by beautiful minty notes.
    • Nose
      Overripe fruits, vegetables, honey, discreet orange liquor, sweet spices. It's round, hot and melted but still lively.
    • Taste
      The palate is very sweet, on exotic fruits more than ripe, beautiful grassy notes (eucalyptus), honey all flowers, sweetness and bitter oranges.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium but elegant on a herbal and sweet register and ends with a minty touch.

  7. Bishlouk scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nose: It makes me think of the Japanese wooden sandal, with a sock! (Eh ... sorry, that's what came to the idea by sniffing it ^^). Old petrified fruits, a little dust.

    Palate: Quite bitter, woody; leather and black tea.

    Finale: Fondue on the wood.
