    True representation of Chivas Brothers' Glenburgie - Ballantine's 17 without the grain and the smoke.

    Enjoy straight - **Not a swimming**
    • Nose
      88 88
      Big hit of alcohol, quite sharp and needs a little breathe. With time its gentleness and subtle character begins to show. Lemon tea with a pinch of sugar, Glenburgie's classic red apples minus the peel. Also something slightly herbal in there.
      With water you're taking to a green field to enjoy the iced lemon tea with a plate of peaches to snack on.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Fruity and sweet, red apples with a dash of lemon peel on the side with a big helping of prickly alcohol.
      With water it goes bad, the sweetness drops, the fruitiness drops and its becomes slightly sour and acidic.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Drying with some subtle oak and a wedge of sugar coated dried lemon.
      With water the finish loses the sugared lemon and serves up a big helping of sour oak.
