Whisky Reviews for Glenburgie 1995 vW

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.65 points

  1. metropolis13 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Degustated blind
    Nose: Fresh and fruity (pineapple and green apple) a little cinnamon then becomes herbaceous with aeration (basil?)
    Palate: attack a bit brisk (an alcoholic hair can be) sweet bitterness (apricot and grapefruit) then big kick of spices
    Final: Short and (too) drying on the bitterness of grapefruit
    Conclusion: a little simple and a little short

    Not easy to define. A review because the potential seems to be there
    • Nose
      Pretty shy. There are some fresh fruits that are there but need to go. A little sweet wine and pineapple not very ripe.
    • Taste
      Liquorice, herbs, mint and a little fruit (hard to say which). Surely a little less shy than the nose but we can not say that it is super expressive. Although it gradually increases in power
    • Finish
      Longer and more intense

    Very nice full bodied Speysider, not overly complex but at this price a perfect daily dram.

    Very good price value ratio and a sufficiently colorful palette!
    • Nose

      Vanilla pudding, mixed flower honeys, tropical truits and candied orange peel
    • Taste
      86 86
      Peach and orange, caramel, creamy vanilla, spicy oak and cinnamon
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length, fruity

    Glenburgie never disappoints me! This is an excellent quality dram at a very affordable price: 20 years old for 60€ is money very well spent! Wish that I had bought a few bottles when they were still available. Very yummy!

  10. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Tropic fruit, ceamy vanilla, Mild parfume, candied orange peel. Some malt tones. This is a very likable smell.

    Taste: Very fruity, canned tropical fruit. Vanilla, hint of oak, some fresh dried malt.

    Body: Medium-full, little oily

    Finish: Medium: Again very fruity, yet very pleasing.

    Price: Absolute bang for your buck!

    Presentation: As always with The Ultimate: Sober but decent.
