Glenburgie 21yr IB (Archives 1995) – Review
- 21 years
- Bourbon hogshead
- 54.1% ABV
Glenburgie is one of the lesser known Speyside distilleries, despite not being widely known it produces over 4 million litres/year. The profile of the Glenburgie single casks I have tried in the past have been rather bold and interesting, hoping this one continues the trend.
Nose: Peaches, vanilla custard, apples, floral, lemon zest. No hint of the spice to come.
Palate: Creamy to start, transitions to spicy. Peaches, pepper, cinnamon, lemon, apples, floral notes and vanilla.
Finish: Spicy continues from the end of the palate strong into the finish. Pepper, cinnamon, vanilla, peaches, apricots, oak, warm, ginger. Medium to long, spice lingers.
This is a really surprising bourbon cask. Transitions from fruity to spicy, nice floral undertones. Very happy I have another Glenburgie single cask coming. Someone else should give this poor Speyside distillery a chance.
