Whisky Reviews for Glenburgie 1995 vW

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.82 points

  1. LittlePeat scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Flawless, a fairly intensive ex-bourbon ripening with some unusual flavors.
    • Nose
      92 92
      Sweet tree resin, wood varnish, ripe citrus fruits (especially kumquat), black bread, icing, caramel, kvass.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Intense resinous-sweet; ripe citrus, slightly numbs the tongue and mouth.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Medium length with resin, black bread and ripe citrus.

      Edit: Have now tried this Glenburgie in direct comparison with a 20-year-old Linkwood and a 22-year-old Glenrothes - both of which appear much younger and are almost inedible after the Glenburgie. Therefore I increase to 92 points here.

      @van Wees: Please fill another barrel next year, at the age of 24 or 25. And with a similar volume percentage.

      PS. Now tasted several times, and I am puzzling more and more about the very modest reviews.
