Whisky Reviews for Glen Elgin 1995 MBa

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.01 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant mute, powerful, fresh, but at the same time transparent, airy, summer, deep enough and complex, very positive, in development it becomes sweeter and vanilla.
    • Nose
      Restrained, moist, the first nose - raw wood and viburnum; processed boards, vegetable oil, popcorn, light mineral notes - dry stones, plaster; light shades of green apples and lemon zest
    • Taste
      Powerful, invigorating, lemonade, tart oak, flower-honey notes, sweet pastry shades, vanilla, ginger, mineral water, lemon zest.
    • Finish
      Refreshing, warming, ginger, red pepper, candy drops, lemon candied fruits, light oak bitterness, red mountain ash, vanilla.

  2. Dirk scored this whisky 88 points Super Administrator

    A good Glen Elgin, slightly different then I would expect from the typical profile but nevertheless good! This at another 15 years would have been very interesting.
    • Nose
      Cookie dough, vanilla, honey, cereals. A bit floral and a touch of lemon. Some buttery notes, a hint of caramel. Some minerals and olive oil.
    • Taste
      Slightly waxy, some parafine, sweet cereals, barley. Herbal notes, honey and a little ginger. Menthol at some point, faintly in the background though. Quite sweet on the palate which feels like something sugared not just just the honey.
    • Finish
      Midlong finish on ginger, barley and a bit of cookie dough or pastry. Menthol layered in some waxiness.

    Chamomiles, herbs, rather a flaky infusion, that's great!

    Blintasting THX 2 Arwen
    • Nose
      Muesli, exotic nose - yellow fruits, apples, especially lemon, yummy but restrained
    • Taste
      very valuable citrus notes - pineapple, partly crystalline, dry, light spicy oak - grapefruit skin, lemon zest, slightly mineral, the palate looks very valuable, but does not like too small sips
    • Finish
      Seasoning, light wood, some wax - especially bright juicy oak sounds long after, pepper and wax are on the tongue
