Glenburgie 15 Year Distillery Labels (Gordon & MacPhail)
Single Malt — Speyside, Scotland
One of the biggest benefits of being part of this madhouse of a Scottish distillery tour that my friend @LeeEvolved conjured up is that you get to try a distillery that you wouldn’t even know existed. This one here, part of an official,offering from @LeeEvolved, is one that I never even heard of. I say ‘official’ offering because in the team, we provide ‘unofficial’ or ‘bonus’ offerings as well. Honestly, it’s the bonus offerings that steal the show, and this round will be no different where I think the top scores will go to a Macallan Black, Springbank 24 single sherry cask, and a Four Roses LESB 2016. Anyway...I digress...so, this here...I don’t know...not fond of the nose. A bit rancid and plastic-y. Maybe because I just had a pretty good Alt-a-Bhainne (also provided by @LeeEvolved ). It’s like driving an Accord after you’ve just drove an Acura. Palette is lemongrass, confectioners sugar. Quick drying finish. It’s decent. But for about $80, you’re better off elsewhere. Again, a first for me in trying a new distillery—-thanks @LeeEvolved !
