Whisky Reviews for Glenburgie 1995 vW

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.25 points

  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A typical Ultimate bottling. It's ok, but just a bit thin on the nose and taste (why not bottle this at cask strength?).

    Finish could be better though; too much bitter wood notes (which is actually quite a valid reason not to bottle this at cask strength...).
    • Nose
      86 86
      A fairly simple but fruity and honied nose. Vanilla, honey, apples, pears, barley sugar, faint nutty oiliness, a little grassy and a mild bitterish wood note.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Honey, vanilla, apples and pears again, some white pepper and an already clearer wood bitterness. Still pretty palatable though.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium length and actually the part that brings this whisky down somewhat. It's a bit flat with not much else going on besides some quickly dissipating honied fruitiness and a lingering alcohol feel with oak wood tannins.

  2. Dirk scored this whisky 85 points Super Administrator

    Good value for money, easy drinker.
    • Nose
      Buttery, stewed apples, creme brûlée, kiwi, fresh green apples, vanilla. Anise.

      Very fresh that is a big plus!
    • Taste
      Buttery, honey, vanilla, very little spices but they are there. Caramel, stewed apples.
    • Finish
      Short to medium finish, stewed apples, buttery, some black pepper to at a little bit of spice to the whisky.

  3. CaskHead scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful bottling of the older age already rather notes - although he still looks a bit fresh. He can not deny the origin (Bourbon barrel). Needs some time in the glass. I like it.
    • Nose
      Fresh, fruity, green apples, grapes, anise, oak, vanilla, some malt, slightly musty
    • Taste
      Sweetness, vanilla, distinct bourbon aromas, pleasant oak
    • Finish
      medium length, subtle oak, a little vanilla
