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

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!

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.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Whipped cream, peach, apple, pastry, vanilla, caramel, caster sugar, honey, peanut and tea. Eventually some grapefruit.

Taste

Peach, caramel, honey, pastry, whipped cream, vanilla, peanut, cinnamon, almond, orange, grapefruit and spice. With water it becomes even more creamy. It can handle a lot actually. Lovely texture.

Finish

Peanut, apple, caramel, caster sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and banana. 

Comments

Excellent value-for-money. Beats cask 6489.
