What they say:

Distilled at Glenlivet Distillery, Aged 27 Years, Batch 1, 48.7% ABV.

What I say:

Sampled as part of the #TBWCAdvent Twitter tasting just before Christmas


Dark amber and copper (12/20)


Sweet and sticky vanilla essence and vanilla custard, dry polished or beeswaxed oak wood, almost a little leathery tannins, heather honey, malty & gristy cereal barley, sweet citrus clementines or manadarin oranges


Sharper than the nose, citrus first and acidic lemon, lime, sweetened with honey and oranges, floral, barley sugars, lemon puff biscuits, or lemon curd on malted milk biscuits; lemony and biscuity I guess! rosy apple sweeties, peach and apricot and then tropical fruits like mango and pineapple, hints of oak wood present all the while.


Sweetie shop, candy floss, marshmallows, honeyed and candied fruits


Oh yum yum yum yum! An old, elegant Glenlivet, a delightfully aromatic nose and then pure pleasure on the palate with wonderful fruits, malt and oak

Score: 92/100

Don’t take my word for it:
