- 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
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.
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.
Long with lingering charred oak and a subtle herbal undertone.
