Whisky Reviews for Glen Els 2008

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.95 points

  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    very interesting and something different .... not quite as sweet as the most Glen Elsen.
    • Nose
      fresh, smoldering fir wood, apple, behind it sweet honey, spicy, pepper, nutmeg, some iodine, rather spicy than sweet, then chocolate is added, mint, makes the nose free
    • Taste
      creamy, but a little sweet, pine cones, light smoke, this tannin spicy, fir honey
    • Finish
      very creamy on the back, nut and chocolate, on the palate the smoke is still stuck, getting drier

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I like the woodgesmoketen Elsen, and this one is beautiful again. The wood smoke is not as smoky as peat smoke, but combines with the Fassaroma (or a special sweetness in the raw brandy?) To a very own Glen Els note, which I really like.
    • Nose
      sweet, slightly spicy, milk chocolate, strawberry jam, cinnamon, speculaas
    • Taste
      sweet, spicy, bittersweet, chocolate taler with orange filling, cinnamon, latte, long-baked Christmas cookies
    • Finish
      long, bittersweet, spicy
