A new independent bottler has risen. The Chester Whisky & Liqueur Company Ltd has its HQ in Chester, about 20 kilometres south of Liverpool on the English westcoast. In 2012 they released their first three bottlings: a Clynelish 1997, a Teaninich 1982 and this Glenburgie 1989.
Hey! Waxy nose with only a little fruit, but immediately mineraly. Wet rocks and even the smell of a First Aid kit. Hint of vanilla, white fruit and citrus. Something of yoghurt or cheesecake. Slight bitterness. Pleasant, though not earth shattering.
On the palate, it surprises by not only being pretty spicy (loads of pepper, little bit of ginger), but also a lot more fruity. Candied fruit, mostly from the citrus family. The yoghurt evolves into coconut milk. The bitterness from the nose returns. The vanilla is much louder now.
The finish is rather long, spicy and fruity, but dies a bitter death.
The nose and finish were okay, while I found the palate enchanting. Middle-of-the-road Speysider. Around 90 EUR.
