Another round five pour. Another Saturday night. Just sitting back and giving this Glenburgie a go. The nose has a little bit of everything. Vanilla, green apples, hints of charcoal, fresh split oak, dried grass. The arrival is hot and tingling. Spicy red pepper is the initial blast. Once the spicy side ebbs, vanilla, toasted coconut, oak, char come through, however brief. A flash of black pepper towards the finish. The body is medium in weight and density. The finish is short consisting of ginger root, oak, vanilla that becomes drying. There is potential is this scotch. It’s on the cusp of being good. It however lacks the depth, variety and length of flavor. Even more, there is a youthful 8-10 year quality to this and not the more mature 15 year. It’s decent, but nothing that is impressionable. Thanks @LeeEvolved for the sample. [84/100][Tasted: 5/19/18]
