Sweet and spicy, the whisky is in the glass. Heavy, sweet pastries with caramelized sugar, toffee and raisins are enriched by sandalwood and tree resin to spicy, almost herbaceous wood notes. The smoky notes - smoked bacon and a touch of wet dog - can be found in the background. It is remarkable how well the quite high alcohol content is already integrated despite the young age. The smell is intense, complex and really delicious!
Thanks to the very high alcohol content of the whisky is strong and voluminous, a clear tingling reveals now but the youthful age.
The basic character is extremely sweet - raisins, sugar cake, caramel are the superficial flavors. Then comes through a strong hazelnut note, it goes over in walnut and is a bit bitter. Again, I find in the background a slight smoke.
The Glen Els says goodbye with an impressive finish, which is characterized by walnut, baking cocoa, toffee and raisins.
