Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 1991 Wy

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. boy_genius_ck scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    beautiful rich, deep, dark oloroso, candle wax, a bit thin on the palate, salty, coarse cardboard, rich wine finish

  2. Amsterdam did not rate this whisky Specialist

    Color: Deep mahogany
    Aroma: Maturation in an old sherry butt gave this whisky a very dessert-like aroma, with overtones of stewed apples and caramel, while the lengthy aging period endows it with undertones of woodiness (both oak and sandalwood) with a slight tinge of leather.
    Taste: Woody, musty and leathery, going over as very aged indeed. There is a slight licorice note towards the end.
    Finish: Middling length, and continues along the aged, woody line, but with a dash of pepper
