Glenburgie 17 Years Old 1995 Cask 6452 & 6453 Signatory

What I say:

Another Signatory ‘small batch’ again a marriage of two Hogsheads and bottled at 43% ABV.


Refractive amber gold (8/20, medium-fine tears, oily


Delicate and light, slightly floral and fruity, sweet heather honey, orchard fruits, apple, pear, peach, fruit blossom, cereal barley grist, caramel, butterscotch fudge, old oak wood and dunnage warehouses


Oily and mouth-filling, creamy fruit like peach yoghurt, banana, melon, pineapple chunks, banana fritters in golden syrup, a hint of salt, toffee, butterscotch, old oak wood, waxy and buttery in texture


Long, cinnamon and cinder toffee, drying oak wood, sweet, fruit compote


An oak-aged and refined fruit cocktail of a dram. Pretty impressive stuff from a distillery more used to producing blend-fodder.
