GLENBURGIE 1995 Over 20 Years

Speyside Single Malt – 54%, 70cl
Single Cask #1 – Sherry Butt Finish
Limited Edition of 688 bottles
LMDW Exclusive

Like Glentauchers and Miltonduff, Glenburgie’s history has always been closely linked to that of Ballantines, as its single malt is a key component in the famous blended scotch. In 2003, the distillery was completely rebuilt, and in 2005 it was bought by Pernod Ricard. Aged in a first fill sherry cask, this bottling reveals not only a sensation of maturity and fullness, but also lots of freshness and vivacity. This antagonism leads to a very natural palette of flavours and aromas whose main highlights are incredible charm, clear accessibility and amazing depth of field.

Colour: burnished gold with copper tinges.

Description

complex, deep. On the first nose, beautiful floral notes (rese- da, petunia) appear alongside marmalade and candied citrus fruit (lemon, orange). Allowed to breathe, spices (cinnamon, ginger) create a very dynamic transition. Increasingly heady, the nose gra- dually becomes intensely malty and chocolatey. Next, with dried banana and candied mango, and rose jam and apricot stone, the aromatic palette weaves between exoticism and classicism.

clean, precise. With a remarkably pure expression, the at- tack is honeyed (acacia), fruity (Mirabelle plum, apple) and vanilla. On the mid-palate, a fine film of green liquorice and vanilla pod coats the taste buds. The very slender flavour palette develops roasted (coffee, praline) and forest floor (porcini, sweet chestnut) notes. The very fresh end of the palate focuses on lots of aromatic plants (bay leaf, chamomile, sage) and heady florals (broom, iris).

long, remarkably well-balanced. A perfect summary of the nose and palate, the start of the finish is vanilla, praline, floral, fruity and exotic. Deliciously mentholated, it then becomes increa- singly herbal (cardamom tea, cappuccino), as herbaceous notes (bamboo, rush) weave together a very natural vegetal frame. On the retro-nasal olfaction, date and sweet chestnut are placed deli- cately upon this herbaceous bed. The divinely malty dried extracts escaping from the empty glass act as one with the end of the palate, creating perfect unity of tone.
