Review #22: The Single Cask Glenburgie 1995 21 Years Old
This review focuses on a very impressive expression of Glenburgie and it was distilled in 1995, matured in a bourbon hogshead for 21 years before being bottled at a natural cask strength of 53.1% and with an outturn of only 24 bottles from a private cask.
So, let's dive right into the review!
The Single Cask Glenburgie 1995 21 Years Old (53.1% abv)
Nose: Rose water, sugar syrup, cherry blossoms, dates, plums, lemon juice, slight soapiness and slightly green. Herbal hints, which are reminiscent of thyme. Just a tiny hint of alcohol and a very impressive nose. Pallet: Sweet and spicy, with more of the floral notes at the fore and followed by the lemon and date hints. Slightly herbal and somewhat oaky on the mid-palate. Some of the rose water notes from the nose emerge on the palate after some time. Finish: Faint sugar and floral notes, coupled with fleeting oak. A rather flavour-forward expression which becomes spicy and drying.
This expression is extremely limited and only available by the dram at The Single Cask.
