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.
As expected, he is pushing hard. Really sweet and dark fruity. Plums and dates. Caramel. Spicy oak. Tobacco. Delicious!
The finish is long and warm. Cocoa and some mocha.
- 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
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
Hazelnuts, spicy-dry, 58.1% are noticeable, then diluted somewhat sweeter and generally with a creamy texture
now noticeably bitter tannins, while quite long, milk cocoa and as expected warming warm, spreads nicely in the back of the mouth and pharynx
heavily sherried whisky balancing on ‘much’ and ‘too much’. A nice whisky for
the holidays, but not for everyone.
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.
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.
Sulphur comes back a bit. With the spices. Quite long and dry.
- A very good intense, rich, fruity and floral Glenburige, with pleasant aromas of dark chocolate
