- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Gordon & MacPhail
A long-aged dram from lesser-known Glenburgie, a big distillery with spirit that normally disappears into the Chivas Brothers blends. It's an important component and this release shows why: floral, fruity and complex, it's a pity we don't see more of it bottled as a single malt, especially after two decades of layering on complexity and flavour. Fortunately, Gordon & MacPhail have our backs.
Glenburgie 21 Year Old Reviews
Aroma: Notes of brown sugar covered stewed raisins mingle with hints of roasted hazelnuts. Delicate floral aromas are complemented by sweet vanilla and freshly cut dry hay.
Taste: Full and fruity; stewed apple, cinnamon, and clove flavours come to the fore initially. Ripe summer berries emerge and combine with fresh mint highlights and refined toasted malt undertones.
Finish: Long with lingering charred oak and a subtle herbal undertone.
