Glenburgie 17, 1997-2014, Old Malt Cask, Sherry Butt HL 10371, 704 bottles, 50% abv.

The Glenburgie distillery was more or less like a light switch and a hot potato, on/off through the decades and being passed around like a 29 cent hooker, but ended up in Pernod's portfolio and primarily used in Ballantine's blends. There have been very few original releases over the years, mostly from IBs such as the Laing's, G&M, and Signatory.

Nose: sweet apple juice and grapes, a subtle sour smoke in the backdrop, lemon zest, a little coastal, some citrus.

Palate: honey, chocolate, initial palate is quite sweet with hints of old wood in there, intense hazelnuts on the back palate, like eating gourmet chocolate wafers or bon bons.

Finish: short overall, but a mellow syrup taste lingers.

Dry glass: honey bbq sauce.

Wow, a chocolate bomb with alcohol spice. Amazing. Truly amazing for the sweetness. Seems more like a mellow digestif if anything. I haven't had many burgies, but so far the ones I've had were pretty good.

Grade: B+

Couldn't find quantifiable, reliable reviews.
