Boutique-y Glenlivet 27 Batch 1 label

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

Appearance:

Dark amber and copper (12/20)

Nose:

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

Taste:

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.

Finish:

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

Overall:

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:
