Glenburgie 1980 40yo XOP Cask 700ml


Glenburgie 1980 40yo XOP Cask 700ml

Douglas Laing have cracked out the fancy packaging for this Glenburgie 1980, bottled for the XOP Extra Old Particular series, and with good reason as it's a 40-year-old refill hogshead that yielded 233 bottles at 40.8%.

Glenburgie is more historically associated with Douglas Laing's fellow indie bottlers Gordon & MacPhail, but DL must have sneaked one from under their noses. This looks like a cracker.

Nose: Immediately delivers on barley with citrus peels then develops to a wonderfully rich, buttery style.
Palate: Mouth-coating thick and moreish. there's vanilla cream with a sweet malty character alongside chocolate shavings and ripe apricots.

Finish: The long finish reveals more of that creamy/caramel depth with a warming spicy quality apparent too.

Alc: 40.8%
