GLENBURGIE 14 ans 2007 Conquête S.V 62,5%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 60323
After Glenlivet, Benrinnes and Glenallachie, now it’s the turn of Glenburgie turn to represent Speyside in La Maison du Whisky’s Plume collection dedicated entirely to sherry cask ageing. Its wonderfully exotic and rancio (mango, cherries in brandy) palette of flavours and aromas is also floral, mineral and honeyed. The oriental finish (rose petal) is a high point of the tasting.
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
- Appearance : copper with orange tinges.
- Nose : rich, deep. On the first nose, a fine layer of soot covers the aroma palette. It then quickly becomes exotic (mango, guava), hot (Cayenne pepper), chocolatey, fruity (orange) and floral (purple lilac, geranium). Allowed to breathe, a particularly elegant rancio takes its place, bringing candied apricot, walnut and cherries in brandy alongside aromatic plants (sage, verbena) and heather honey. Outstanding!
- Palate : ethereal, concentrated. The exotic attack (mango, lychee) is nobly spiced (cardamom) and mineral (charcoal). The mid-palate is very different and characterized by flavours of sweet and juicy white fruits (pear, Mirabelle plum, Golden Delicious apple, peach). The deliciously honeyed (acacia) and milky (coconut, almond) end of the palate brings a delicious sweet treat (Bêtise de Cambrai mint sweets, liquorice sweets).
- Overall : long, silky. The rich start of the finish invites us to enjoy a rose-petal-flavoured quince jelly. This superb entrance adds an oriental touch to the flavour palette. The elegant end of the finish reveals flavours of citrus fruit (mandarin, orange), violet bonbons and black liquorice. The slightly salty retro-nasal olfaction is herbaceous (pipe tobacco) and tertiary (fig, date). The very dense empty glass is at once heady (iris), peppery, hot, powdery (cocoa) and malty.
- 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.
Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.
