Ha ben, for once, I find that what is written on the box just hits ... Because most of the time I feel a lot except (almost everything) what is announced. I'm right in the pears, but then marked with strength eh! Apples in the background and a touch of vanilla and caramel. Very fruity, very sweet. Typically Speyside. A nose that will appeal to those who appreciate it rather sweet, even to those who thought they did not like whisky.
Soft, fruity, very light. Again this is, I think, the right plan to introduce whisky to someone reluctant. Always a note of pears but we are mainly on cooked apples, not really an apple pie but we find biscuit notes. Grany style apple cookies. I really like.
A fairly short finish, but just as sweet and fruity, on pears with a touch of very pleasant ginger. I valid!
The nose leaves in fruity and floral directions. I feel pell-mell exotic fruits, custard with almond and a hint of rose and lavender. After this beautiful introduction the mouth is a little ethical unfortunately ... The texture is watery. This malt is seriously lacking in size and power despite the wood structure that a little mouth. The finish is very short on some almonds and tannins. Pretty little interest finally.
This whisky is part of a few samples of Glenburgie which I got. I guess at 40% abv this one might be the weakest. Nose is promising, but in the taste nothing really happens. No worries, one down 3 to go.
I would say a nice summer whisky. Nice, fruity and sweet. But do not expect too much of it.
