Glenburgie-Glenlivet 23 Year Old 1992 vintage Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in bourbon hogsheads, bottled 2015 by Cadenhead's for the Small Batch series. 456 bottles.
Nose: Sweet and grassy; very fresh. Melon; fresh mint leaves; clementines and lime leaves are flowing from the dram as soon as you open this bottle. In the glass they truly open up perfectly.
Palate: Gooseberries; kiwi fruits; whole limes and dried bananas. Some celery salt and then some soft brown sugar.
Finish: A soft but long finish. Very floral with light zesty fruits. A fresh and vibrant whiskey with a great age comes a great taste.
Glenburgie Single Malt Whiskey
Glenburgie Distillery was originally established west of Forres in Scotland's Speyside whiskey region as Kilnflat Distillery by John Paul in 1829. Equipped with two pot stills until 1958 when two Lomond stills were installed and two differing malt whiskies were produced, Glenburgie from the pot stills and Glencraig from the Lomond stills. The Lomond stills were removed in 1981 and replaced with two pot stills. Glenburgie is now producing malt whiskey from six pot stills primarily for Chivas blends. Whilst very little is released in official bottlings it is available from some independent bottlers including Gordon & MacPhail.
