Review by The Glenlivet

« This review is also available in Dutch »
Colour

Amber with sparkling copper shades.

Nose

An opulent, mature nose with a sherry influence. An intricate array of wood and fruit: Christmas cake, sultanas, maraschino cherry. Water enlightens the fruity bouquet and brings out vanilla and lighter notes of ripe peaches. Pear and marzipan pie. Luscious barley sugar aromas.

Palate

This full-bodied whisky is unctuous and mouth coating, almost syrupy. Oak holds the reins back, releasing a drying spiciness of cinnamon, ginger, walnut and dark chocolate.

Finish

The finish is everlasting and warming with lingering presence of toasted hazelnuts and a full layer of liquorice.
