    That is a kind of matured whisky you should try to touch the old style of producing. Those notes of clockwork oil make it outstanding! High league! No doubts!

  3. malthead-sven scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    a good and adult malt, the burden of his both old age and price but he can not resist.
    • Nose
      begins restrained, lemon slices, floral, something like in the greenhouse, then pushes some nougat powder underneath, Brazil nuts, later come green bananas,
    • Taste
      Here you can clearly see the influence of the wood, but the age makes it mild on the tongue, pear jelly, green tea
    • Finish
      long and oaky, little fruit, just a little sweetness in it

  4. magic_slim scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Excellent Glen Elgin. Recommended.
    • Nose
      Wow, what a superb start! Waffles with maple syrup and baked pineapples at first nosing. Notes of acacia honey and stewed pears with cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Fresh with sweet lemonade at first mouthfeel. Tastes like green tea with ginger, lemon and honey. Lovely,
    • Finish
      Long, becoming slightly drier with herbal and zesty aromas.
