Set close to the A96, near the village of Alves, lies Glenburgie Distillery which looks over the Moray Firth. The distillery was originally called Kilnflat, although in 1878 after a period of disuse, it was renamed Glenburgie. Nearby is Burgie Castle, which dates back to the 16th century. For a short while Glenburgie also produced another single malt, Glencraig. This was produced using Lomond stills and is available in our Rare Old range.
Alcohol by Volume: 43%
Origin: Speyside. Alves, Nr Forres.
Notes: Matured in refill sherry barrels.
Tasting Notes: Elegant Speyside malt shows orchard fruit (apples, pears), dried hay and oak leaves on the nose, with some toasted almonds and a hint of mustard oil. Grassy and malt-driven on the palate with light sherry influence. Long finish is dry, well-balanced, and shows subtle wood spice notes of clove and mace.
