Nose

Quite intense and dry. Sulphury at first. Every taster has an individual sulpher-tipping point. The point that the sulpher goes from ‘nice/edgy/interesting/character’ to ‘way too much sulpher’. This Burgie is balancing on that point for me. Furthermore the whisky has nuts in the nose (hazelnuts), and some dried fruits (raisin). Some flowery notes in there as well, at least some of the distillerycharacter survived in this cask. Overall a full, dry nose.

Taste

This is very nice. I like this more than the nose actually. Very warming, mouthcoating. The sulpher has taken a more humble place. In it’s place come spices (nutmeg), nuts and dried fruits. Very well balanced, lots of big flavours. Nice.

Finish

Hmmm. Sulphur comes back a bit. With the spices. Quite long and dry.

Comments

A heavily sherried whisky balancing on ‘much’ and ‘too much’. A nice whisky for the holidays, but not for everyone.

A very good intense, rich, fruity and floral Glenburige, with pleasant aromas of dark chocolate
