Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 2000 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points

  1. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Quite cool. White grape, lemon, petrified apple. Palate: Well built, greedy. Liquoreuse, oily even. Apple, raisin, apricot. Final: The bitter apricot endures. Verdict: Nice and coherent as a whole.

  2. TastyDram did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Yet another great club bottling from Maltclan (I'm repeating myself, I know...). Maybe not as good as the Glenlossie from two years ago imho but still a solid value for money tipple. The 260 bottles didn't make it through the day. All gone so you'll have to wait until next year for another G&M from Maltclan.
    • Nose
      Lots of alcohol on the first sniff. You'd better let it rest for a while in the glass. Finnish delight marmalade confection. Apricots and raisins. Make that a Christmas cake. Dried banana and muesli or oatmeal. A subtle rose perfume mingling with vanillapudding. Brioche bread and wet mossy wood. Hints of Nespresso Vanilio.

      The whisky becomes dusty with a few drops of water. Christmas cake spices are more pronounced. A creamy banana mousse with woodflakes. Smoked chipotle butter and sweet corn or maize. Wood matured grappa and fruity aromas of grapes, pineapple and white chocolate flakes.
    • Taste
      Again a strong presence of spicy wood flavours. Ginger powder and dried banana flakes. A bag of dried apricots. Strawberries with black pepper and clove.

      Water creates a rooibos tea infused with clove and a juicy fruit bomb. I'm mainly thinking of strawberries and canned pineapple and peaches. The wood flavours become a little bitter after some time.
    • Finish
      A long candy-like finish with a spicy punch. Rooibos tea and clove (again). A warm film clings to your tongue.
