Whisky Reviews for Glenburgie 15-year-old

19 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.03 points

  1. Dris scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      82 82
      fresh and fruity, green apples, fudge, vanilly
    • Taste
      82 82
      honey, oat biscuit, baked apples
    • Finish
      81 81
      short, vanilla and bitter oak

  2. Defeatless scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A bit middle of the road, but too bitter imho. Also heavily chill-filtered and strongly colored. They could have put it better here.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet, fruity, some pears on juice, some vanilla. This is everyone's friend. Great nose, but not a topper.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Oops, tie thin. Some sweet, but also a bitterness. The fruity from the nose is therefore very much compromised. You actually do not taste much more than some sweets and a bitterness.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium length. In the beginning pretty nice, pears on juice comes back. But the bitter tones then take over, that does not take long though.

  3. Willum scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The nose is quite interesting (especially if it has been standing for a while) but then it gets less.
    Certainly not a dirty dram. It is a bit flat but it is a nice round dram.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Soft, sweet, apple, pear, little citrus, caramel / fudge
    • Taste
      81 81
      in the extension of the nose ... especially fruity with apples and pear. Then slightly light bitters.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Short and slightly bitter.

  4. Nickolaas scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      84 84
      Applejuice, pearcandy, a bit minty, winegum, vanilla, a bit minerally, citrus
    • Taste
      80 80
      Vanilla, some orchard fruits, a bit bittery
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium, bourbonbitter, oaky

  5. Rien scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      84 84
    • Taste
      83 83
    • Finish
      84 84

  6. fgg scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The nose promises more than the taste can make. Nice slip-on, not a high flyer.
    • Nose
      85 85
      If you immediately put the nose in it, it seems the first best blend, give it time and it will be fruity. Some apple and pear, also a tropical atmosphere in the background. Vanilla.
    • Taste
      82 82
      The taste is also overflowing with vitamin C: the apple and the pear are clearly coming back. Furthermore, there is not much happening and it is a bit flat, will also come from the ABV of 40%.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Finish: Short and flat.

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    N- Rising citrus, grainy and pepper nuance, with black tea, dark pu-er and boiled herbs. Sandalwood, caramel and dried fruits in the middle that evolved to quite special unusual gamey roasted duck, well savoury and spiced, sour plum jello, orange sauce with arousing oily palm skin and chocolate. (89/22)

    P- Active oak, sandalwood rushes in with cigar, cedar and tea-ish tannin. Dried fruits with well behave sweet herbs on the forefront, get sweeter and fat overtime. (86/20)

    F- Medium, plum, orange caramel, lasting peppery, sticky and grainy with oak linger. (86/20)

    Body/Balance- 87/21

    Weighted Rate- 83pt
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
