  1. Dexter606 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Really nice malt with tropical fruits, pleasant waxy, oily. Honey, delicately spicy oak.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Vanilla, oak, apricot, pineapple, coconut, herbs. Somewhat closed. It gets better with the addition of water.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Wax, honeycombs, flowers, butter, apricot, pineapple, coconut and spicy oak. Alcohol super involved.
    • Finish

      Long with clear oak, spices. Dry. At the very end some leather and tobacco.

  5. WhiskyCasual scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Great nose with exotic fruits, then unfortunately dies down a bit in the mouth and is a bit (too) spicy in the finish

  8. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    In the nose a little modest, but again a lot of fruits, tropical fruits to be more specific. But with a clear hint of smoke and licorice, which I've never encountered before in a Glenburgie.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Fruity, citrus, tropical fruits, pineapple. Also a whiff of bonfire smoke on the background. Then suddenly washpowder. With some water more sweet notes, vanilla.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Pretty strong, pepper. Sweet and fruity, tropical fruits, orange, also a hint of licorice. Peach now, and pineapple. Honey. With a little water a whole heap smoother.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still rpetty strong, again a whiff of smoke, with some licorice. And some fruitiness. Pretty long finish.

  9. OJK scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Classic 90's Glenburgie malted notes, with honeyed almonds and chocolate oranges. Surprisingly smooth and easy drinking given its high ABV.

  10. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Malty nutty with some nice exotic fruits in the background

  13. LordBellamy scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    with water: it goes better, the pineapple gets stronger, pear and apple are added, significantly fresher, surprisingly there is a little campfire smoke in the finish

    Conclusion: somewhat disappointing, closed, lack of complexity for old age
    • Nose
      83 83
      oh, at the beginning it is very closed in the nose, vanilla, pineapple, apricot, good oak / pencil abrasion, alcoholic, herbs, subtle coconut cream, later orange and lemon
    • Taste
      85 85
      here is much more pleasant, oily, herbs, vanilla, honey, subtly tropical fruits
    • Finish
      84 84
      medium length, lots of vanilla, herbs, strong oak, some fruit
