Glen Elgin 12 Bottling Note

The Glen Elgin Distillery dates back all the way to 1898, and it's situated up in the Speyside region. Using six stills and six wooden worm tubs, Glen Elgin produces a wonderfully fruity, flavoursome spirit which is very popular among blenders. But blends aren't why we're here – we're here to get the full-on Glen Elgin experience from its ace single malt! This is the 12 year old expression, the only official distillery bottling from Glen Elgin, boasting those aforementioned fruit notes alongside helpings of buttery vanilla and sweet spices.

Palate: A soft, malty palate with hints of salty butter, Corinth raisins, walnut loaf and coffee ice-cream.

Finish: A long, malt-driven finish with hints of sugary porridge on the tail.

Glen Elgin 12 Year Old Reviews


Surprisingly complex rather philosophical, not typical speysider
bitter and unexpected flavors, some coffee, nuts, but basically sweet.
I like it.

Very smoky, not sweet at all.

Very smoky, no mention of this on tasting notes on box. Don’t like smoky whiskies so disappointed that those who write these notes cannot taste it. If like me you don’t like smoky whiskies avoid this as you’ll be disappointed like I am

Nice and sweet

sweet, simple, friendly, well defined, one of my favorites

Very boring

I have been wanting to try this for sometime now so my wife bought me a bottle for Christmas as I had read good reviews. Let me start by saying that the mouthfeel and ABV at 43% are absolutely perfect but as for taste and smell I find this whisky very mundane. I have trouble picking out any certain flavours or aromas or anything that stands out. Shame I didn’t stick to what I like and add to my usual stock.Nevermind !

Great bang for buck

Its sweet, creamy coffee nose flows through into the palate and with its maltiness reminds me a little bit of a Highland scotch rather than a Speyside
At 12yo I feel it’s still a little young and the older ones, eg the 18yo, are fantastic but you can’t go wrong for the price.
Buy one, it’ll not disappoint

Great Speyside starter

Real value for money, after hints of honey and a slight peek at the light smoke in the nosing, Glen Elgin delivers these promises. A soft taster and medium kicker, but the finish leaves you with a long lasting warmth. I would recommend this one to start with in a Speyside tasting. Nevertheless 3.5 stars, because of the missing extras you would expect.

Good value 4 star malt

Good all rounder. Hint of smoke and nice long finish. Value for money in my view. Not a 5 star by any means but newbies to Speyside should try

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.
