  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    High quality Glenburgie, which lacks a bit of power and a little more depth, is very round and smooth, but tasty.
    • Nose
      Light hogshead notes, but you still notice the age, quince, pear, lychee, honey and cereals, white grapefruit, linen bags, parchment, resin, banana chips, vanilla, marzipan, fennel
    • Taste
      White grapefruit, pineapple chips, fennel, camphor, green apple, toffee, forest honey, damp grass, melon, almonds, pumpkin seeds
    • Finish
      Carbonic acid, light beer, papaya, grapefruit bowl, pineapple, medium length

  3. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Big notes of tinned peaches dripping in syrup. Basket of juicy red apples with a selection of fresh herbs on the side and even a touch of mint.
    • Taste
      Tropical fruits, mango and dry pineapple. The peaches are there with a spoonful of that sugary syrup coating the tongue. A gentle wood spice holds throughout.
    • Finish
      Long and delicate with wood spice and white chocolate.

  4. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Bottler's tasting notes:
    Aroma: Complex; zesty lime and crushed ginger biscuit aromas layered with pressed green apple. Fresh herbal notes are balanced by a nuanced resinous edge.
    Taste: Bursts of ripe tropical fruit open into flavours of warm banana fritters with a drizzle of golden syrup. A gentle herbal edge with hints of white pepper develops.
    Finish: Long and multi-layered. Dark chocolate and oak linger.
