Glen Elgin 1995 Reviews
Tasting notes from Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)Nose: Candied sweetness rolls out of the glass with floral syrup, toffee apples, candy letters, PVA glue and a hint of grainy apple. Toffee digestive biscuits sit underneath, surrounded by bunches of flowers.
Palate: Thick, creamy and sweet to start, with sharp lemon zest and citrus oil cutting through the middle. Darker, grainy notes build at the core, with toasted oats and spicy rye mixing with barrel char and toasted oak.
Finish: A flash of salted butter leads to crunchy spun sugar, lemon zest and pith, and lingering candied peel.
Comment: Sweet but well balanced, with darker notes providing a complex contrast.
