The ‘Speciality Drinks’ Co. has been steadily acquiring top quality casks of maturing single malt whisky, and since 2005 they’ve been releasing these whiskies under ‘The Single Malts of Scotland’ label. Each is bottled as a single cask or as part of a small batch either at cask strength or 46% and to ensure each Whisky maintains its original flavour and cask character, they’re not chill-filtered and have no colour added. While differing from official distillers’ bottlings, several of the company’s astute selections have won awards and are receiving critical acclaim from the world’s leading Whisky experts.
Glenburgie was established around 1810 and is presently owned by Pernod Ricard. Its Single Malt makes up a key component of the Ballantine's blends. Otherwise available as a 15 year old distillery release, this 18 year old independent bottling was matured in a Sherry butt and is limited to 591 bottles.
Tasting note: Pours a very pale straw colour with a water like hue that looks more like a toddler than a late teen. Gentle nose prickle. Initial nosings reveal a soft, seamless fusion of peat laced barley that’s also quite chocolaty at first before becoming dry, salty and more reminiscent of cured meat with aeration. A fruity edge that’s like baked citrus also emerges. Exceptionally concentrated on the palate with an intense spiciness that’s nicely juxtaposed against a soft, oily, almost creamy texture. Warm, gentle spirit tingle. Some beautifully clean malt and cocoa notes emerge beneath the peat. Finishes fresh and dry. Several drops of water does wonders, opening up the whisky considerably in particular accentuating the length, depth and overall equilibrium. 62.2% Alc./Vol.
