    Head to head with the Black Friday 2019 (Glenburgie EID) :
    Really close to the BF, but each step is a bit more expressive and intense.
    Exotic fruits, honey, pepper, "fresh" and complexe !
    Highly recommended for the Glenburgie's fans

    This is really nice. The fruitiest Burgie I’ve ever had? Certainly on the finish. Finish is really wonderful. So tropical. Starts off nosing like starburst candies. A little spicy. Palate is creamy and semi fruity, before an explosion of tropical notes on the finish. Really solid dram. Liked the finish the best.

    Very gentle and easy-drinking, with a focus on tropical fruit notes.

  8. Abadon05 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Lots of bright and exotic fruits. The whisky is also convincing in taste. Unfortunately, the nose falls off a bit and the complexity could also be more pronounced. But still a delicious whisky.
    • Nose

      Unfortunately, it is very lemony and there is also a noticeable stinging of the alcohol.
      Hay and spring honey.

      Bright and exotic fruits.
      In particular honeydew melon and the lemon.
      More pleasant than the nose.
      Nice and sweet as well as minimal sulfur.
      And hay and grass.
    • Finish

      Exotic here too. The sweetness is only slightly there.
      But a little dry.

    Another stunning, (tropical) fruity middle aged Glenburgie from Elixir Distillers. They seem to be sitting on some extremely good stock, especially considering Glenburgie is not a very common single malt at all.
