Glenburgie 8 Year Old / 2012 / Carn Mor / Bourbon Barrel / 47.5% / 70cl
Not as old as some but old enough to deliver a nice balance across the palate.
Nose: With a sweet oak and honey richness to open the nose, spring sweet freshness with a dash of orange spiced chocolate. Spring flowers and honeysuckle with a dash soft peppers.
Palate: A mouth coating creamy vanilla, some milk chocolate and soft honeycomb with crispy wafers. A delicate creamy citrus and spice note comes in with hints of honey. Honeysuckle, warming vanilla and fresh citrus notes round this off perfectly towards a nice balanced lingering finish.
