Glenburgie became an essential component of Ballantine’s blended whisky when the distillery was bought by Hiram Walker in 1935. Also known as Glenburgie-Glenlivet, Glenburry or Glen Burgie, the distillery is based near Alves, Moray in Speyside region.
Because its whisky is usually an ingredient for blends, you rarely bump into their single malts. I’ve only tasted one Glenburgie indie bottling by Gordon & MacPhail. Fortunately in 2017 Ballantine’s, released a series of single malts which were used as the base of their blended whisky.
Even though I found this single malt quite delicate, a bit too light for my taste, it manages to offer wee character under its mellow shade.
With higher alcohol by volume level it could easily fit to much higher score. Pleasant single malt with lots of potential to be even better.
