A complex, full-bodied whisky. On the nose it has the characteristic Glenlivet notes of apples and caramel. On the mouth, spicy and cinnamon notes, and some salt. The -long- aftertaste is bitter and full of tobbaco and burnt wood.


Apples, caramel.


Spicy, blackpepper, salt, cinnamon.


Tobacco, burnt wood, plum.

General description

Klassikko tislaamon 21 vuotias versio.


Iso tuoksu, kypsää omenaa ja päärynää sateen jälkeen, aprikoosi hilloa.


Makea, hillomaisuus löytyy myös maussa.


Yllättävän ohut loppu. Sitruunahilloa.

In der Nase ein Fest der Düfte. Zitrusfrüchte vom Feinsten. Im Mund klassisch fein mit einem tollen Abgangsbouquet.

General description

It is very difficult for me to rate such a quality vintage product, with such a fine pedigree, this low. This is the first >20yr scotch I have tasted. I expected much more. All the beloved distillery notes I love from Glenlivet products are missing. Old musty smoke flavors arrive as the pour airs out in the glass. I am not a big fan of smoke or peat. Smoke over powers other notes. I was also expecting more richness and a more creamier mouth feel. I think the 18 year might be the sweet spot at a much lower price point.(less than half) I just can't abide $300 for this bottle.
