Nose: Bees wax and fresh stone fruit form a sweet sherried aroma.

Finish: The finish is rich with red berries and has a lick of menthol on the tail.
Glenburgie is an important component in the Ballantine's blend but makes for a fine single malt in its own right.
In 2003 the original distillery was knocked down to make way for a modern purpose built facility on the same site, this whisky was of course distilled in the previous distillery buildings.
