A rustic style of whisky, Glen Els Ember contains 40% wood-smoked malt. Aged for a minimum of four years in Germany's Harz Mountains in a combination of casks – cream and oloroso sherry, tawny port, Marsala, Malaga and Bordeaux, this is sweet, spicy and smoky.Tasting Notes (2)
Tasting Notes by Rocky
The higher percentage of wood-smoked malt is immediately evident with a hit of spicy clove, which combines with sultanas, caramel, milk chocolate and juicy plum.
A whack of cranberry hits first, followed by clove, vanilla and toffee. The texture is creamy and helps to balance the level of spice.
Very long, with the sweeter notes slowly overtaken by dry clove spice.
This shows the effect woodsmoking has on a whisky – it’s an effective way of adding smoke without the medicinal notes. If you like smoke, but Islay whiskies are too much, then I’d recommend trying this.
Producer's Tasting Notes
The nose starts spicy with a fine blend of raisins, berries, cake mix and baked chocolate chip cookies. Beneath the surface there is some smoke, caramel and rich grapes, while towards the end, moderate caramel notes and a subtle understated oak points.
The taste starts as complex as the nose with notes of fruity pastries and a very elegant smoke flavouring (smoked sausage). Sweet, spicy raisin and cranberry biscuits occur before fine, subtle oak notes. Subsequently, a hint of vanilla, spices and grilled notes towards the end. The finish is long and lasts for several minutes.
