Whisky Reviews for Glen Moray Elgin Classic

17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 75.31 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    It’s time to embrace said ‘classic’, received as a Christmas present in 2016.

    C: An easy one ideal for home blending. Keep it open for a while and it’s not totally offensive, and begins to open into a reasonable sipper or hip flask option. Saying that, I gave this away myself.

  2. AquaVitae scored this whisky 70 points Member Senior

    Way too sweet and too much caramel notes. I didn't finish my dram, which says enough.

  4. craide scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Nothing really exciting or spectacular. Sweet, easy.
    • Nose
      76 76
      Slight vanilla, light floral notes, hay and some citrus. Works rather dusty dry.
    • Taste
      76 76
      Soft, tasty malt. Sweet with a slightly more intense peppery spice. This does not stay long.
    • Finish
      74 74
      Rather short, light wood notes, it remains a rather watery mouthfeel

  5. LeChiffre scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    A gentle and tasty malt, which is not very complex and quite flat (almost watery). Pleasant and easy to drink, but also pretty boring. The nose is still best. More than once, I do not have to have it in the glass.
    • Nose
      79 79
      light and fresh; malty; Citrus notes; a little vanilla; minimal grassy; delicate spicy oak
    • Taste
      76 76
      gentle and soft; delicate citrus notes; again a bit grassy; spicy oak
    • Finish
      75 75
      slightly herb-spicy oak; Citrus flavors; some ginger sharpness

  8. AdamsB scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    It is worth a try, cause the distillery sows its own barley itself, which results in a very creamy and butter whisky.
    • Nose
      73 73
      Fresh, malty, hay, lemon grass, oak, pepper
    • Taste
      75 75
      Lemon peel, vanilla, toffee, ginger, pepper, hay
    • Finish
      74 74
      Vanilla, citruses,

  9. Allandale scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Easy drink, no complexity.
    • Nose
      Rather closed, with just the malted sweetness coming through.
    • Taste
      Light, grassy and sweet with notes of green apple and lemon.
    • Finish
      Medium length and slightly drying with the lemon notes remaining.

  10. schengel10 scored this whisky 62 points Connoisseur

    A very simple, uncomplicated Single Malt!
    • Nose
      light citrus aromas, floral, malty, slight alcohol note;
    • Taste
      Sweetish, citrus-fresh onset, slightly sourish aromas, marked youth, on the palate malty;
    • Finish
      a short finish with citrus fruits in the reverberation;
