Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré intense à reflets vieil or.
  • Nose : à la fois ferme et pulpeux. Il oscille entre le citron confit et les fruits exotiques. Superbement vanillé, il devient au fur et à mesure épicé (girofle, poivre, muscade). Particulièrement frais, il se développe sur des notes de verveine et d'estragon.
  • Palate : vive, puissante. Elle se montre racée et élégante. La vanille et la praline tapissent dans un premier temps le palais. Le milieu de bouche fait la part belle aux agrumes et aux fruits mûrs (poire, prune). La réglisse ajoute une touche huileuse avant que le chèvrefeuille, le lys et la cardamome ne la rendent capiteuse.
  • Overall : longue, riche. Elle se révèle pimentée. L'influence du vieillissement en fût de bourbon transparait au travers des notes de vanille et de caramel au lait. De fines notes de cendre et de fumée font progressivement leur apparition. La rétro-olfaction est marquée par l'orange sucrée et la mangue.
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.
