Nose (22/25): Lovely maltiness, rounded, massive and nice vanilla, mild licorice. There's a slight woodiness here as well, as an added spice.
Taste (22/25): Sugary, peppery, and fruity. I find both fresh and candied apples, as well as chocolate and licorice.
Finish (23/25): Warm, long, full-bodied, and sweet. It is very rich and complex. This whisky keeps on giving! The fruits come and go (mainly citrus fruits now), and there's sugar, caramel and syrup.
Balance (22/25): A really nice Glenburgie! This distillery is becoming something of a favorite of mine, and I have tasted several more recently. More reviews to follow.
