Adventurously Awesome" SMWS 71.79

“Adventurously Awesome” Scotch Malt Whisky Society 71.79

Distillery: Glenburgie

Age: 14 Years

Region: Speyside

Cask: 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon

ABV: 58.7%

Color: Golden Straw

Nose: Thick and syrupy sweet with marmalade, marshmallow peeps, pound cake, and maple syrup. With water: strawberry candy, violets, and a light vanilla simple syrup.

Palate: Still very sweet but with some surprising savory notes like a chocolate and almond mole. Cracked white pepper and cinnamon sticks on a long, spicy finish with a bit of bitter char. With water: dried orange peels and cardamon move forward but so does a bit more oak bitterness.

Overall: Really fun and layered sweet notes but not very complex beyond that. The oak bitterness brings some astringency that mars an otherwise lovely, syrupy mouthfeel. Still, a fun example from a hard to find distillery. Glad I bought this!
