Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 1995 Cl

16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.07 points

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    The nose was promising, but on the palate it goes south, I’m afraid. The lavender is too dominant.
    • Nose
      Fresh and fruity on pears, melon and even some lime, but with a dark edge. I can only describe it as woodsmoke. There is a candy-like quality, which is quite nice in this case.
    • Taste
      Despite the high ABV, the arrival is soft on citrus fruit and pears, but the candy now turns to lavender which then becomes quite perfumy. A touch too soapy to my taste. The woodsmoke is prominent and reminds me of a hearth. 
    • Finish
      The finish is long and sweet, with quite some oak, but the soapiness lingers too long.

  2. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Pure and yet not easy: cool :. Does not need water.
    • Nose
      Strong, smoky, exhaust fumes, long drawn green tea, old, dirty, oily engine, reminds me of Lagavulin: eek:, behind floral, lilac, after 20min soapy, lavender, the smoke is gone, green gooseberry
    • Taste
      Soft, oily, fumes, freshly sawn wood, lilac, blocky, later less smoky, floral, white wine, lavender, still Lagavulin: eek:
    • Finish
      Milk coffee, tea, tar, oil, lilac, lavender, long and malty

  3. Falnor scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Quite a lovely surprise. Lately not many Glen Elgin's around, so this one is nice.
    • Nose
      Light and subtle, Quite the spring orchard with fresh apples, pears and blossom. White sugar melon.
    • Taste
      On the palate also the mixture of light and fruity. This time more pineapple and mandarins. Cigar box in the end.
    • Finish
      This subtle dram hasn’t got a big ending, but it lingers on in fruit and gentle sweetness.

  5. theograph scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A beautiful malt with pronounced herbal notes and floral impressions, even a little salt / coast is there ...
    • Nose
      Slightly salty, floral, honey and lovely, pleasant and inviting;
    • Taste
      Distinctive herbal note, floral meadow, floral, honey again, wood / oak, zirtone and a little acid (fruit or wood?), More herbs!
    • Finish
      Medium to long, with not too few impressions of the wood, pleasantly warming;

  8. rb854 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Full and sweet, fruity, citrus, tangarines, peach, some pears and apples. Vanilla, herbal notes, wood and cardboard.
    • Taste
      Firm, fruity, apples, fresh whiff of mint, chocolate, leathery, citrus fruit and some spicy notes.
    • Finish
      Keeps lingering, a bitter note, citrus fruit, spicy notes, liquorice.

  9. wisekycourse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    On the nose, spices, then fruits (lemon, green apple), and a grassy side, with a little dust (not smoke but almost!), Return of a woody freshness! It promises!

  10. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Not utterly complex, but very good. It reminds me of the whiskies from the past. 
    • Nose
      Quite fruity and grassy, with pear drops, lemon, tangerine, grass and mint. Behind that is more robust malt, slightly raw (husky, oily and earthy). 
    • Taste
      Medium to full bodied, not too sweet. It delivers ample barley and fruit, but also some oily, earthy, rooty elements. Think of various citrus fruits, apricot, barley, licorice, workshop (oil), tobacco, and towards the end a bitter note of ginger. 
    • Finish
      Medium, not so bitter as the palate suggests. The ginger doesn't push trough, it gets mixed with pepper. Then, the robust malt and the fruit return.
