  1. LittlePeat scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    I like it very much. Citrus fruits, semi-ripe honeydew melon, a little bit of black bread, possibly light smoke, somewhat mineral. Clear warehouse smell! Very round and oily on the palate. Nice finish with honeydew melon in the foreground.

  3. dramspotter scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      very restrained, some lemony tang
    • Taste
      clear bourbon in style, a deep earthy, woody ending merging into the finish
    • Finish
      earthiness lingers a bit and then a slight light wood hangs around. Medium due to the continuing echo of this wood.

      Long and spicy.

  5. Bishlouk scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    The nose is really nice, but I can not appreciate the acidulous and / or astringent whiskys. Too bad that the mouth of this Glen Elgin falls in this hair profile that I do not especially. A whisky nevertheless well made and consistent with what it offers.
    • Nose
      Pretty delicate and engaging, while also being quite wise and classic. Yellow fruits (apple, lemon zest), honey, a hint of wood. A floral freshness in the background, after aeration.
    • Taste
      Astringent from the first sip, with a pronounced acidity. Lemon, green apple, and spicy spices.
    • Finish
      A sweet honeycomb coated with peppery spices. The tart green apple lasts a moment too.

    This is a glorious bourbon cask treat.
    • Nose
      Buttery and herbal, with wood and fruit: oranges, raspberries, blackberries, and limes. Minty toothpaste, wood varnish, deodorant spray and acrylic paint.
    • Taste
      Creamy Easter egg chocolate. Malty toffee. Mint ice cream, menthol, cherries, gooseberries and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Long and tangy with citrus leaves and bourbon spice.

  7. Jimjam did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Cadenhead's own tasting notes:

    Initially grassy giving way to white pepper; hints of soft leather and hints of orange zest.
    Toasted oats and raspberries with white chocolate. Lemon cheesecake with soft golden syrup.
    Pistachio nuts; distant lime; soft spice and slightly drying.
