The warmer it gets outside, the less I want to drink whisky, so I saw this sampler and thought it would be better than buying full bottles. Plus, I wasn’t sure I was going to like them, but spoiler alert, they were way better than I thought.
Elgin Classic: smooth, simple, vanilla and honey. It’s good but not wow. 50 ml 40%. Full bottle cost: $30
Port Cask Finish: 50 ml 40%. It is a tad bit sweeter than the classic. It’s not bad, there’s a bitterness but, that does go away. Full bottle cost: $30-40
Sherry Cask Finish: 50 ml 40%. Light, with heavy sherry notes. So far, the best out of the first two. Full bottle cost: $34-$40
Cabernet Cask Finish: 50 ml 40%. I like this one as well. It’s lightly sweet with oak notes. To me the Sherry cask is still the better of the four, but this one is a close second. Full bottle cost: $35-40
Truthfully, these surprised me and what’s even better, they are very affordable. Even if you can’t find the sampler, a full bottle will not cost you an arm and a leg. So, if you are looking for an affordable good Scotch Whisky, these would be a great choice.
