Ballantine's Glenburgie 15 Year
Ballantine’s // Speyside, Scotland
Glenburgie is one of the primary Speyside single malts utilized in Ballantine's blended whisky. This 15 year-old bottling puts a spotlight on this little seen distillery. Available in global travel retail in liter sized bottles with other markets to follow in standard sized bottles. Bottled at 40% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"We're off to a very light and somewhat tame, yet fresh and fruity start. It shows a certain maturity on the nose, with hints of milk chocolate, green apples and honey. The palate is sweet at first, but becomes more bitter and spicy with time, and has a fairly thin mouthfeel. This Glenburgie starts of promising, but doesn't completely deliver."
