What's in a name? Glen Elgin 12 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glen Elgin 12 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Cereals. Rich. Malt. Smoky espresso, honeycomb.
Palate: Soft, malty. Honey, lightly salted butter on toasted sultana loaf. Hints of tiramisu.
Finish: Good length, barley, toasted oats.
although the nose is rich and the taste is good, this whisky doesnt deliver. The taste is good, but dry and faint. Finish is hardly present.
I've read a lot of very good things about this whisky... I wonder why..

A lovely bright whisky. Definite apple notes. I've enjoyed my bottle but it hasn't been a standout.

There are a few nice malty, honey, tiramisu notes here but nothing really spectacular, no doubt if given a craft presentation it would have more weight to the flavor.

A very interesting speyside, one of the good ones I had in years. Try it!

One of the best spey malts I've tried (and I've tried a few). Very moorish. Definitely worth giving a try, you will not be disappointed
