1975 Berry Bros. & Rudd Glenburgie, Cask Ref. 6011, Speyside, Single Malt Scotch Whisky (44.1%)


Glenburgie, known originally as Kilnflat, sits on the coastal grasslands of the Moray Firth, close to the town of Forres. Built in 1829, it passed through several owners until 1936 when, along with its sister distillery Miltonduff, it became an important producer of a key ingredient in one of Scotland’s leading blends.

This wise old Speysider initially gives musty aromas of old leather, dusty attics and cigar boxes; however, a little time in the glass – and a little warmth from one’s hands – reveals a deeper fruity side. The palate is rich and mouthcoating, with an old-style tropical fruitiness and waxy character building to an immensely complex and balanced experience. The long finish shows all the personality this spirit has built up over nearly half a century of maturation. Immense, unique and exceptional.

About this SPIRIT

Glenburgie Distillery, Speyside

Glenburgie Distillery, Speyside

The distillery (also known as Glenburgie-Glenlivet and Glen Burgie / Glenburry) was founded in 1810 and started production under the name Kilnflat in 1829. It changed ownership several times and in 1936 it was bought by Ballantines to become a core component of Ballantines and Old Smuggler blends.

The Ballantines company belonged to Hiram Walker, which would become part of Allied Distillers some years later. In 1958, two so-called 'Lomond Stills' were installed and used to produce a special malt named 'Glencraig' after Willie Craig, a former production director of the parent company. This pair of Lomond stills was removed again in 1981 to make room for a second pair of normal 'neck' stills. Since 2005 it belongs to Pernod Ricard.

Glenburgie is noted for its lightly peated character, which contributes to its mellow, honeyed, estery style and delicate flavour. Whisky produced by Glenburgie is essentially used in blends, in particular in Teacher's and Ballantine's.

Speyside Whisky

Speyside Whisky

To some Speyside represents the jewel in whisky’s crown. Speyside is the home of legal whisky production and it’s best known examples. Around the world Glenlivet, Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenrothes and Glenfarclas typify all that whisky, at it’s best has to offer. At it’s heart running from the Monadhliath mountains north to the sea, is the River Spey. It is the fastest flowing river in Britain, and also well known for its salmon fishing.

Speyside is the principal whisky-producing region: Speyside has within it some forty-six operating distilleries - over half the total number in the entire Scotland.

Speysides are essentially sweet whiskies. They have little peaty character They are typically highly perfumed, feminine and elegant.

The classical nature of Speyside’s malts means that a number of the finest malts are used almost exclusively for blending. It is the top Speysider’s that give good blends their ‘Top Dressing’. 

Malts such as Mortlach, Glen Elgin, Strathmill and Benrinnes are rarely found as distillery bottlings, however when individual casks are tracked down by independent bottlers such as our Own Selection Single Malt Whiskies the resultant whisky can be quite wonderful.
