Glenburgie-Glenlivet 11 yo

Glenburgie-Glenlivet 11 yo

Authentic Collection, WM Cadenhead

Single malt - Speyside

Pale green gold

59.8% ABV

Nose: Mint, raisins, milk chocolate, bananas, salt caramel, hints of brine.
Light body, thickens, smooth, slippery.
Sweet salty. Mint, raisins, milk chocolate, white grapes, vanilla, salt caramel, hints of bananas.
Short. Chillies, milk chocolate, white grapes, hints of brine.


I don't know the year of distillation or year of bottling for this one. It is fragrant and sweet, with lots of Edradour-like mint chocolate notes. Layered over that base are white grapes and some dried fruit, with a slightly salty bite. Tastes simple, somehow, and doesn't need any water at all, despite the strength.


I like this a lot.
