General description

An interesting soft nose with hints of vanilla and some richer fruits. Very smooth on the palate, a very light clove and some spice but more vanilla notes and a fruit note resembling something like lychee. An interesting dram that I wouldn't say no to trying again, though probably not one I would buy myself.

General description

Livet 15 and Fiddich 15 offer interesting contrast at similar price and aging. Fiddich makes denser, bolder first impression eith dark fruits and toffee, but Livet has a more complex and interesting mid palate to finish with lighter and more citric orangy accents with gentle sweetness. Neither has the clarity of palate combined with maturity of Highland Park 18, but both are good drams at 1/3 the price and worthy whisky to be in rotation.

General description

Rich may be the best description of this smooth and deep dram. It is very warming and spicy, rich. The nose is nutty and spicy. The palate is warm, smooth and has a deep oakiness. It's slightly earthy, with a decent finish, mainly spice and a little sweetness. A very nice and full-bodied whisky, this is good for warming the soul on any night.

Nose

Nutty, spicy, sweet.

Palate

Sweet, spicy, oaky.

Finish

Spicy and sweet, quite long.

General description

This 40% Speysider is chill filtered and coloured and spent 15 years on French oak.
The result on your nose is a sweet and rich nutty fruityness of honey, almond, pear and apple. After bottle opening a little acidic but after a while some oaky smoke takes over.
The taste is soft and sherry sweet with a buttery and nutty spiced oak.
Finish is highly enjoyable with again a nutty spiced oak.
Not a game changer but it probably would have been better with a higher abv.

76 points.
