  1. Ruud6421 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

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

    The final brings down the note, but we have seen worse.
    • Nose
      Rather sweet nose, but with sulfur (not too much, but there is some). Cinnamon and ginger. Delicate wood. Raisins. Leather very pleasant to aeration. The sulfur fades with aeration without ever disappearing, not disturbing.
    • Taste
      Pleasant on the palate, copying the nose, but more delicate (the very slight sulfur pencil lead adds something), the wood is diluted. With lots of extra nuts.
    • Finish
      Spicy finish on tobacco, spicy on chocolate.

  4. Kraddell scored this whisky 76 points Expert Junior

    Pours a darker coppergold. Scent is strong, nutty, caramel, chocolate, gingerbread. Some raisins. Taste is super smooth, sticky, very high boozyness. Sharp, some chocolate, some raisins. Bit to high ABV for me. Lovely, but would prefer a bit lower ABV.

    • Nose
      Oh hello! Powerful start. Lots of sherry. Very spicy. The high alcohol content is clearly noticeable. Sticky dates. Some leather. With time in the glass becomes always heartier in the impression.
    • Taste
      As expected, he is pushing hard. Really sweet and dark fruity. Plums and dates. Caramel. Spicy oak. Tobacco. Delicious!
    • Finish
      The finish is long and warm. Cocoa and some mocha.

  8. malthead-sven scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    In order to play in the very first league, there is a lack of elegance in the taste, but if you give it water and enough time, it is a delicious older Sherry-Speysider with good complexity
    • Nose
      Raisins, uniquely Oloroso sherry, gingerbread, dried dates, some ginger, red grape juice, pine needles, cinnamon, with only 3 drops of water musty, carpet store, Ricola herb drops, a minimal appeal of motor oil and tomato juice, later chocolate and brown bananas
    • Taste
      Hazelnuts, spicy-dry, 58.1% are noticeable, then diluted somewhat sweeter and generally with a creamy texture
    • Finish
      now noticeably bitter tannins, while quite long, milk cocoa and as expected warming warm, spreads nicely in the back of the mouth and pharynx

  10. corbuso scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

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