Member Ratings and Notes

Nose:  grape juice, lots of fruit.

Palate:  Syrupy sweet, apricot nectar (the kind that used to come in a can), sweet malty notes.

Finish: Comparatively mild and malty.


A one-note fruit bomb. 


A fruity sweetness is present on the nose, palate and finish. More like a fruit bowl, you know theres a bumch of stuff in it but you cant really tell what kinds. Just smells and tastes fruity.


OBE (old bottle effect) was the first thing that came to mind when nosing. Everthing is more mellow and mixed in, nothing wants to stand out. Still this was very enjoyable and my favorite of the three 19 year old Glen Elgins.


n:  Floral but just OK.


p:  Green twigs.  Meh. C+/B-
