User Reviews of the Glen Elgin 12 Year Old


My son was in Edinburgh and picked this up for me on a flyer at the Scottish whisky experience as he'd never seen it in North America, and I'm glad he did. I love the rich and smoky flavour.

Very special

It is a very special for a new comer who test this malt, I thought it is very pleasant a big nose and pallete , so I recommend this bottle to new tester to perceive this initiative testing

For me the dram has quite distinct floral qualities, I can vaguely taste heather, thistle and a slight hint of sage. Its sweet palate gets a rather short but pleasant malty finish. A little too dry for my liking.

okay so in a whisky lover but not an out and out expert. but most whisky drinkers are not. this speyside seems to get a few folk saying it's not special, but it's a standout SPEYSIDE for me. and as a speyside lover - that makes it special. very nice, very easy to drink but without being 'plain'. tried many many whiskies and Glen Elgin 12 is still right up there as a favourite.

Very decent nose and early palate, the tasting notes are spot on. However my bottle turns bitter shortly afterwards in the late palate and the finish, overshadowing any other taste, not sure if i got a corked bottle or just need to add a few drops more water. It sits on the shelf now and I'll see if it settles down in a few weeks

Well balanced

Great nose followed by a smooth, rich taste. Excellent dram for the spring or summer.

dont bother

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.

the mymic

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 well worthed toast

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

A hidden gem

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
