"Ballantine’s status as the second largest seller in the world accounts for the fact that Glenburgie’s sightings as a single malt are as infrequent as those of the Loch Ness monster. Fragrant, sweet, slightly grassy and with a lick of oiliness, Glenburgie’s make is pretty much entirely ring-fenced by blender Sandy Hyslop for the Ballantine’s blend."  So write scotchwhisky.com in their introduction to what is one of Scotland's true underdog distilleries. Established in 1829 as Kinflat distillery in the Speyside region near Forres, Glenburgie changed owners’ multiple times before eventually being bought by Hiram Walker in 1936. It has been associated with the Ballantine’s blend ever since. In 1958 two Lomond stills were installed only to be removed and replaced again in 1981. The old distillery was demolished in 2004 and a larger, open plan building was constructed. The distillery was acquired by Chivas Brothers in 2005 and has remained part of their portfolio ever since. Sightings of Glenburgie as a single cask are rare which is why Claxton's selected it as part of this series. Bottled at 44.6% from a hogshead. Non chill filtered.
