Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 1995 CC

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.00 points

  1. hartist scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    A Glen Elgin marked by austerity and a certain bitterness.
    • Nose
      Fresh, it offers us scents of fresh fruits (pears), citrus fruits (lemon zest), vegetation (flowers) with some heather honey and a touch of metallic varnish.
    • Taste
      Attack quite strongly spicy, then peeled fruits, touch of white wine and slight bitterness.
    • Finish
      Average on a fruit-vegetable mix and a bitterness that has become accentuated.

  2. Toffie76 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Lack of complexity. Unbalanced
    • Nose
      vanilla, floral, sap, cereals. Solvent / perfume (lillas, rose water)
      honey / heather
    • Taste
      Too much "scented" kind of cologne for my taste. The mouth follows the nose, without surprises. Nice development though.
    • Finish
      always on the fruity / floral / sap. Bitterness too marked.

  3. Bishlouk scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Bitterness too marked for my taste, and profile without surprise. The reduction is quite noticeable in the mouth.
    • Nose
      Present and tangy, melted on lemon peel, melon and juicy pear. Ground coffee appears afterwards.
    • Taste
      Apple, pear, dried apricot, and a malty sweetness. A bitterness marked with yellow fruit peel.
    • Finish
      A pinch of white pepper, and the lingering bitterness of fruit peel.
