Glenburgie 1992 (Tasting Fellows)

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Glenburgie

Glenburgie 1992Tasting Fellows has just started as an independent bottler, with around seven releases so far, all medium-aged single casks.

We’ll start with this Glenburgie 1992, a bottling that’s sold out already. Later we’ll also try the Caperdonich 1995 from their latest batch.

As far as I know, their bottlings are only available directly from tastingfellows.de. You should investigate shipping abroad, fellows!

 

 

Glenburgie 1992 Tasting FellowsGlenburgie 20 yo 1992
(55,6%, Tasting Fellows 2012,
bourbon barrel #4894, 179 btl.)

Nose: modern with a sweet barley core. A mix of pineapple sweets, apricot jam and honey. Banana ice cream. Vanilla custard and hints of white chocolate. Mouth: really sweet again with a thick, creamy texture. Pineapple, apple compote and pears. Different kinds of jelly beans. Banana again. Honey and plenty of vanilla. Hints of almond paste. Finish: long, with more spices and green oak alongside the sweetness.

Quite a syrupy Glenburgie, with a modern character that’s easy to enjoy despite the low complexity. For people with a sweet tooth. Around € 70.

Score: 87/100

  • george: i see you have tried st magdalene and say it is harder to find i am a collector of st magdalene and i have 40 bottles i am selling these date from 196
  • sjoerd972: I wish the guys at Bushmills would demand the labels to say "Northern Ireland" so we didn't have to speculate on the booze's origins.
