Glenburgie 10yr (Gordon and MacPhail)
On a recent post I mentioned a number of distilleries I had yet to review on this blog and Johnnie (@JohnnieStumbler) kindly offered to send me some samples for some of them to try including this Glenburgie 10 from Gordon & MacPhail.
Unfortunately it turns out i'm utterly stupid and had already reviewed 2 Glenburgie's but another whisky review never goes amiss, so it's included today.
Sharp, like vinegar but without that vinegary taste, i know thats odd to say, oaky and bready notes this is a bit of an odd dram but a very drinkable one, really intrigued by it and could happily drink plenty of it.
You can get a bottle from Master of Malt.
Thanks again to Johnnie (@JohnnieStumbler) for the sample you can check out his blog at The Nosing Arse.
A light spicy note first followed by some bitter lemon peel and that vinegar sharpness but without the malt vinegar note, crushed acorns and some hints of fresh pine needles and butter
Sweet and prickly, with sweet vinegar and definite oaky notes, crushed acorns, touches of gently toasted white bread
Oaky, toasted bread and some vinegar prickle
