Whiskey Review: Glenburgie 1995 Signatory Vintage 23 Year

Glenburgie 1995 Signatory Vintage 23 Yr / 57.5% / $170

Tasted neat, then a splash of filtered water

272 bottles of this 23 year old Glenburgie were turned out for The Whiskey Exchange’s 20th anniversary. It was distilled 15.06.1995 and bottled on 28.03.2019 from an ex-Bourbon Hogshead at cask strength. It has a resplendent maroon label.

  • Color: old gold
  • Nose: tropical fruits — papaya and pineapple, malt, and vanilla
  • Taste: creamy and fruity, lots of grape, some tannins, parched leather
  • Finish: medium, with cream and dry oak

The Glenburgie ends up mostly in Ballantines, and I get the connection now. This is a little bit hot even with water, and a bit cardboard-y, but still plenty fruity and a good light dram for warm weather.

Rating: 85/100
