      First, a very dark sherry spills into the nose, dark inlaid raisins with an intense woody note with some polish. Alcohol you notice a bit. Clearly a change between the muted sweetness of fruit bread and wood and seasoning. This is accompanied by an interesting note of light sulfur and burnt. Super interesting, since I did not really expect that. Exciting!

      I let the Glenburgie breathe for 30 minutes, which can not hurt after the opening. First, of course, how can it be otherwise, intense sherry, less sweet for it with strong, already anticipated seasoning with a strong start. Add a touch of sulfur and coffee. Fits fine. The whisky lays completely on the palate and offers much more sophistication than anticipated. Adding minimal water will make it really rounder and sweeter, overall a little milder and I'm very pleased with its zero bitterness. Despite only a middle age of 12, you already have clearly noticeable complex notes.

      The finish is a long time with beautiful sherry, plus some coffee and dryness with a little wood fire.

    Disappointed as well as almost all bottlings of this series after the excellent first four bottlings. Had it better to be good then, but the "cash cow" must be milked.
    For Glenburgie - in the nose still quite pleasant, he can not match the taste. The low point is the woody and bitter finish, which does not give you any desire to pour it again.

    Actually, a whole nice malt.
    Tasty but rather nothing for me.
    Will probably try a second time.
    Priced but too ambitious.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Sweet with dark fruits and raisins.
      Slightly stinging unpleasant alk. Grade.
      After some time in the glass he becomes clearer. Oranges, ripe bananas, figs, some cinnamon come through. No stinging touch anymore.
      Every now and then something like dark spicy gravy.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Fruity, slightly sweet onset. Dark fruits, somehow tastes woody, dull, stale, with a slight peppery spice. Alcoholic it does not work here anymore.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long finish, a bit bitter towards coffee, getting drier.
      Pfeffrig sharp note fades quickly.

  6. DerDennis! scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Although the only has 48.7% alcohol, I find him very sprittig. Especially in the nose, the alcohol covers almost everything.
    Water defuses the whisky properly, but it does not get more complex.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Strong spicy nose, dark fruit, tannins, dust, furniture polish, plums, some cinnamon, honey, clear alcohol, dark chocolate
    • Taste
      84 84
      Alcohol, oily, spicy, chocolate and plums, ginger, wood, malt ... I can not find much here
    • Finish
      84 84
      medium to long, licorice, pleasant woody, but bitter
