Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré soutenu.
  • Nose : à la fois ample et délicat. Le premier nez évoque tour à tour un bouquet de fleurs capiteuses (chèvrefeuille) et de délicieuses gelées de fruits (coing, pomme). Il devient au fur et à mesure de plus en plus épicé (poivre, moutarde) et balsamique (lichen, thuya). Il s’alanguit sur une fine note chocolatée sur laquelle sont posés des fruits noirs (myrtille, mûre).
  • Palate : remarquable de plénitude, elle ne s’embarrasse pas de fioritures et va à l’essentiel, à savoir l’orge maltée, un distillat d’une grande pureté ainsi qu’un boisé raffiné. Au passage, les fruits noirs sont devenus rouges (groseille) et des épices nobles (gingembre), des miels subtils et des fleurs d’oranger ont fait leur apparition. L’ensemble est accompagné d’une symphonie de plantes aromatiques (sauge, sarriette).
  • Overall : longue. Pleine de vigueur, elle se montre juteuse et fruitée (raisin). Sa minéralité est à fleur de peau (ardoise). Balsamique, elle évolue sur l’eucalyptus et le camphre. La rétro-olfaction est remarquablement fruitée et précieusement boisée. Le verre vide est marqué par des notes de Havane et de fleurs capiteuses (rose).
The brand

The brand

Founded in 1829 (or 1810 according to certain sources), the Glenburgie distillery has always been linked with the Ballantine’s blend and the Allied Domecq company. Since 1958, Glenburgie had the unusual feature of housing two Lomond type stills, which are very rarely used in the industry. They were replaced by traditional pot stills in 1981. Interestingly, its malt can also be found under the name Glencraig, in tribute to William Craig, a former director of production at Ballantine’s.

Merchant

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.
