Signatory Vintage bought a whole series of casks filled with Glenburgie 1995, all in the #644x – #647x range. We’ve seen at least 10 bottlings in the Vintage Collection and Un-Chillfiltered ranges and some casks have found their ways to other bottlers.
Asta Morris picked cask #6475 from the Signatory warehouses, bottled in the typical Ibisco decanter.
Glenburgie 19 yo 1995 (50,5%, Signatory Vintage for Asta Morris 2015, hogshead #6475, 287 btl.)
Nose: malty, seemingly naked at first, but it develops a very nice fruitiness. Yellow plums, peaches, tarte tatin, golden raisins and a hint of pineapple. Elegant and rounded, with a soft hint of vanilla marshmallows. Marzipan. A fine mature Speysider.
Mouth: starts creamy and malty, with some vanilla fudge and apple pie. The second wave brings this bright, honeyed fruitiness back. Berries, citrus. Very smooth and round, with an oily character. Also mild oak spices and just a light, salty touch.
Fruity, elegant and dangerously drinkable whisky. Balanced with an above average complexity. Bert has a nose for this kind of stuff. Around € 90, on its way to stores as we speak.
