  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    with water: it opens, green bananas appear, more fruit and a little more sweetness

    Conclusion: A tart beauty that shines with fruit and lemon notes, plus the fennel aromas and the wood, which is not too dominant despite its age

    Colour: light gold. Nose: coffee and cappuccino from the oak at first, then butterscotch and fresh croissants, which just flatters my Frenchness. This one is more on cakes than on fruits, but it does all this good. Pear tarte. With water: no wait, fruits are coming. Rather bananas and ripe apples, as well as white peaches. Or vine peaches. Mouth (neat): excellent, I’m afraid to say. A tad rougher, with rather more herbs and grasses, but it’s also showcasing a very complex lemon-ness, tangy and tart, and yet fulfilling. Okay. Some spearmint. With water: phoo, that tanginess! And the chalk, lemons, mint, the two fennels seeds hidden behind those… It’s all pretty perfect. Finish: medium perfectly balanced. Fruit peels and salad with a touch of honey. An unexpected salty touch in the aftertaste. Comments: I’ll have to re-do my kind-of-official ranking of the distilleries soon. Glenburgie will be up for sure.

  4. Official tasting note

    Nose: Very grassy and fresh. Whole pineapples, peaches, fennel and limoncello.

    Palate: Slightly drying ginger notes, then vanilla ice cream, shortbread with raspberries and cardamon.

    Finish: Honeycomb, white chocolate with pears, delicate oak touches and kiwi fruit.

    Nose: Chocolate, honey, cinnamon, some vanilla
    Taste: Mineral in taste. Good sweetness. Pretty strong aroma. A little citrus.
    Rating: 90 100 finish fairly long sweetish. Good it was whisky. Interesting in reception. Multi-layered in taste.

  12. Totoro scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Typically tart / mineralic / acidic ex-BC Glenburgie. If you like your malts "naked" and almost austere, this one's a winner. I personally miss a bit of additional polish and sweetness. However, the nose really transforms with the addition of water.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Grapefruit, lime, lemon, a dash of Italian bitter (e.g., Campari), tonic water, limestone, graphite, hay, maize. The alcohol is perfectly integrated and virtually undiscernible. Time in the glass yields additional vanillin; water brings out an interesting, "dirty", greasy workshop impression à la Springbank/Clynelish/Ben Nevis, and also renders it less sour. Without water: 85-86 points, with water: 89. I'll settle for the middle.
    • Taste
      86 86
      A bit sharp without water, and a bit too oaky with it. Too bad, because otherwise, the flavors are nice and clean, mainly on citrus fruits, understated minerality, and dried botanicals. Yet it's all regrettably simple for a quarter-century-old Glenburgie.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long and dry, with slight chinine bitterness and lots of oak. Becomes dramtically better and more well-rounded with water. But still: I've had better (Burgies).

    Excellent glenburgie, very balanced, nothing stands out unpleasantly, very balanced with light fruits, malt, mint, vanilla, spices like cinnamon, ginger.
    Not spicy, not bitter, not acidic, not alcoholic despite the clear barrel strength.

    Tasted in the evening.

    Buttered, then cereal, quite roots, more austere than most Glenburgie I've tasted.
    In the mouth, round, smooth, fruity, and it continues in the final with its small batch of spices.

    Enthusiasm 3/5
