"Honeysuckle, warming vanilla and fresh citrus notes."
A relatively unknown distillery despite being in production since 1829, Glenburgie is rarely seen as a single malt, Glenburgie is part of the Chivas Brothers family and a core element of the Ballantines blend. So important is it to the blend that virtually all of this distillery's production is reserved for the blend. In 2004 a major refurbishment of the distillery took place, virtually creating a new distillery.
In the rare occasions its seen as a single malt it's a sweet and aromatic malt with a nice oily texture amongst grassiness.
Carn Mor is an independent bottling arm of Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers. The company has gone through a few names, being founded as John Murray & Co before it was taken over in 2005 by Kenny Mackay and former Morrison Bowmore chairman Brian Morrison. Initially bottling Scotch whisky under Carn Mor alongside the production of liqueurs, they founded the Aberagie distillery in Perthsire in 2017.
When Brian and son Jamie Morrison took sole ownership they rebranded as Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers in 2020. The Old Perth sherry cask matured blended malt and Mac-Talla Islay single malt brands are also part of the company's portfolio.
