A delightful Glenburgie from Gordon and MacPhail’s superb Connoisseurs Choice series.
Glenburgie is a Speyside distillery known for producing a grassy, malty whisky with a weighty body. The malt has traditionally been a core part of the Ballantine’s blend, but is increasingly recognised for the quality of its single malt.
An 1998 vintage, that was bottled in 2019, the whisky has been aged in a single refill American hogshead.
This whisky delivers flavours of apple, toffee, aniseed, pepper, old oak, vanilla, honeysuckle, spun sugar, chocolate fudge cake, buttered popcorn, banana, ginger and a little warming cinnamon.
Bottled at a hefty cask strength of 55.3% ABV, and without artificial colouration or chill filtration, this is an expertly crafted whisky, full in both body and flavour.
Only 245 bottles were produced.
