Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 1990 SV

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.50 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    complex and interesting - I like minimal alcoholic
    • Nose
      ripe slightly crumbled apples overcooked, vanilla sauce, some wax, orange oil, orange peel, orange, lemon, plum, powdered sugar, a touch of pleasant sulfur, toasted oak, planed wood, black tea, flowers
    • Taste
      Orange and bergamot, a lot of mint, ginger, pepper, oak, wax, tobacco - very nice and spicy - full-bodied - beautiful texture - slightly titled the alcohol - the spice dominates
    • Finish
      light chocolate bitterness, walnuts, medium long, fading fruits

  3. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Does not tolerate water. The previously tasted 23-year-old was less bourbon-laden and less fragile.
    • Nose
      Lots of malt, malted coffee, fully ripe, juicy apples, alcoholic sting. A quick touch of vanilla, some nutmeg, lemon cake. Custard, whipped cream. After a few minutes no alcohol. With water: brown bread, more vanilla. Otherwise it weakens.
    • Taste
      Malt, green apple, vanilla, blackcurrant, lavender. Pleasant to drink, soft, no alcoholic sting. Bitter almonds. With water: malt. Loses intensity.
    • Finish
      Malt, green apple, lavender. Little bitter. Pie shell. Medium.
