    I opened this bottle at my latest whiskytasting, a room full of people tastzd something great that day. A very beautifull thick and oily whisky, great texture.

    Nose: dried fruits, choclate, caramel, butter, black and white pepper, red fruits, oaky notes, very well balanced

    Taste: dried red fruits with a peppery explosion, small hints of choclate and well balanced oaky notes, but not overpowering the whisky at all. The taste in the mouth is very thick and oily, one of the best textures of a whisky i have ever had so far.

    Finish: the lesser of the whisky, but still pretty good and long, wood and dried fruits

    heavy and heavy drink, obviously squeezed - will it breathe?
    in the beginning it was 86-87-86
    in two weeks in a half-full crockery it was already much more interesting, but the general impression is still such that the whisky is very dense
    • Nose
      89 89
      The first violin is played by molasses and dried pear, a very thick aroma, some honey tones.
    • Taste
      89 89
      the continuation of the aroma, but with decent inclusions of minerality and echoes of black pepper
    • Finish
      88 88
      pepper comes to the fore and eclipses everything

    A surprisingly nice,
    sweet Glen Elgin that makes me long for spring. I find it a lot better with
    some water.
    • Nose
      The nose is creamy
      and burst with citrus fruit, lime in the lead. A bit of beeswax makes it
      smooth. There is a light floral touch. Dandelion. Softly
      spicy on cumin and ginger. Some lemongrass. Fresh and crispy. Reminds me of spring in a way. With water it becomes a tad sweeter and
      more accessible.
    • Taste
      It arrives quite
      powerfully. Punchy and spicy. White pepper precedes citrus
      fruit. Besides some lime and oranges, I also get some slightly sour mandarin
      and grapefruit. The oak rears its head as well, but it never turns oaky.
      Diluted, I get a fresh, sweet spring dram in my glass. The citrus is softened
      up by hints of green banana. The spices start to whisper. The oak silently
      retreats.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly
      long with sweetness and some drying oak at the death.
