Welcome to this new serie of tastings that I starting right here and right now. What the f*** is WTF Tastings is listen to you asking? Let me explain…


In these three years I have tasted almost 1,000 whiskies and I have realized that although I do my best for not to score whiskies because of its name, its bottle or its price I end up doing it. But don’t despair! I have decided to use a new method to grab samples and taste it. I call it WTF!.

Glenburgie 1989 18 years old Tasting note

By Miguel in Tasting , Glenburgie

“A perfect sherry cask. It is not easy to see such a good one. On the other hand the cask has had a very strong influence on the whisky.”

Glenburgie 1989 18 year
Distilled at the Glenburghie (sic) distillery in 1989, this was initially matured in bourbon casks, the casks were selected by Jim McEwan, and they were then transferred into Rivesaltes casks, before bottling at the Bruichladdich distillery in 2007, as part of a release of 962 bottles from Murray McDavid's Mission series.

This dram has a gold-like color.

Nose (90): strong. raisins, peaches, chocolate, wood, floral, honey.

Palate (89): smooth, oily, powerful. raisins, peaches, honey, wood, nuts, cocoa. Remind me of Kavalan Solist Sherry Cask.

Finish (90): long. cocoa, raisins, citrus.

So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Glenburgie 1989 18 year with 90 points over 100.
