  1. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Heavy, sweet, dark fruits, plum jam.
    • Taste
      Creamy, round, sweet, again plums and raisins, with chocolate cherries. At times I think that a very slight smoky note is present.
    • Finish
      Disappear slowly, sweet, then bittersweet chocolate and Mon Cherie.

  4. SimpleSample scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    It's a great Glen Else again ... completely round and coordinated.
    • Nose
      Bright fruits ... apricots ... now comes some milk chocolate ... it goes in one direction from a light fruit compote
    • Taste
      Oak with a hint of roasted aromas followed by a pleasant sweetness (honey, chocolate) ... slight spice pushes on
    • Finish
      Pleasant ... light tingling on the tongue and again some apricot.

  5. pianoman scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Soft, fruity. Raspberries, strawberries, some wood varnish. Custard, cherry sweets.
    • Taste
      Sweet strawberries with some pepper and milk chocolate. Forest honey, farmer's bread, a trace of coffee. Medium.

  6. matts scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Spontaneous artist I-IV tasting: A very pleasant port finish and undoubtedly a good whisky. Not too complex though.
    • Nose
      Beautiful port, vinous with plums and chocolate, in the background light cinnamon and old oak.
    • Taste
      Caramel, vanilla, plums, raisins and subtle oak. Everything very well integrated and consistent. Overall, a nice fruity sweetness.
    • Finish
      For a long time, caramel, chocolate and oak remain.

  9. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A light and pleasant to drink whisky, as with all Glen Els Fassfassung has not missed its effect. Overall, I miss a little bit of force here. The taste note that squeezes the most is the salty, with the more pleasant aromas then fading into the background.
    • Nose
      First, a nutty chocolaty aroma rises in my nose, which then immediately mixed with cherry, instantly Mon Cherie comes to my mind, behind it some fresh mint and a hint of dishwashing detergent (citrus), barely noticeable alcohol, the port kegs have here too Good work, with some patience comes leather and wet tobacco, after the first sip, the nose is much spicier
    • Taste
      Nutty, but also dry and sometimes sweet, the sweetness is more and more with caramel and chocolate, mixed with some salt and sour cherry notes
    • Finish
      Dry again with a fruit bowl and some spice (leather, tobacco), kish juice stands out, medium-long, the slightly sourish of the cherry is then quite persistent
