Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 12-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.33 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    It very much resembles old blends with good exposure in glass, minimalist, modest, but there is some kind of charm, the spirit of the times.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, old wood, solid wood furniture, dusty shelves, old leather goods, light lacquer notes, a carpentry workshop, stone dust, in general, quite concise and modest.
    • Taste
      Calm, oily, oak, ginger, furniture lacquer, old leather goods, dried fruits, raisins, some industrial-mineral shades, metallic acidity.
    • Finish
      Soft, mineral-metallic, old oak, leather, unsweetened dried fruits, ginger, varnish.

  2. Whisky_Addicted scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Color: Lemonade
    Nose: sweet pastries, candied fruit, freshly cut planks, fresh apples, flower honey, wormwood.
    Taste: light bitterness, wood, a little bit of vanilla, apple seed.
    Finish: long-lasting, tart, wood, wormwood, slightly pepper.
    Conclusion: more downed whisky. Density is higher, less watery. And there is some kind of perfumery in the aroma. It does not appear immediately. But she's cool.
