    Despite slight weaknesses in the nose, especially with a little elevated temperature, it is still a tasty malt, which I like much better than the Impair. However, there were much better port Elsen.
    • Nose
      Immediately after pouring, the nose is quite meaningless, smells of whisky, some yeast, some malt. After a while, the picture looks different, red berries, light chocolate and a well integrated wine note. The yeast is still there. Overall, quite harmonious and restrained. A strange note of burnt milk resonates, too weak to really bother. Warms even more fruits and wine, but also old socks.
    • Taste
      Harmonious, richly sweet of honey and milk chocolate, with light fruit acidity and a hint of oak. The onset and consistency are very pleasing, vigorous and oily, full.
    • Finish
      It warms nicely in the chest and throat, the sweetness goes fast while oak and fruit acid pleasantly line the mouth. Overall, the finish is short to medium.

  3. Egge scored this whisky 76 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Sweet port smell, cherries, a touch of strawberry and caramel. Very gentle and no alcohol.
      And somehow bakery.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity, the nose is preserved: strawberry and cherry, Port and very gentle. A light spicy note.
    • Finish
      Rather short, relatively dry. The spiciness remains.

  4. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Totally ok, but not anymore. Since there were already much better Portabfüllungen of Glen Els. It lacks, as with many of the drink Glen Els bottlings, a bit of intensity.
    • Nose
      Directly a fruity sweetness rises in the nose, fresh red fruits, cherries, caramel, creamy, above all a Portweinnote, which also brings some dryness, yeast, similar to the bread dough, with intense smelling mint, leathery spice, also slightly greasy and salty , overall very pleasant, rather reserved
    • Taste
      very creamy and sweet, caramel, very sweet and fruity, cherry, and also slightly spicy, oak, slightly nutty, like thin hazelnut cream, somewhat flat, uncomplicated
    • Finish
      getting drier at the back, almost acidic, still a very creamy mouthfeel, slightly bitter, as if you had bitten on a grape seed, rather short

  6. Gogopro52 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very nice for those who already liked the Double Port:
    Fine sweet, great dark chocolate, a little espresso and many red fruits.

    Extremely balanced, the icing on the cake, however, would have been this bottling. Positive to note: 10 euros cheaper than the first two casinos and I have spent the money for the quality. Imagemäßlich shoots Glen Els unfortunately by the age 4 yo again something in the leg, as parts of it are also 8 years old and this malt absolutely does not taste like a 4 yo.
