Member Ratings and Notes
Chris
 
N: Very rich and nutty, toffee, wonderful...
P: Spicy and syrupy, sweet, with a hint of dried apples.
F: Sherry notes swell and sweetness coats the mouth.
Excellent.� Trying this one and a few of the cellar collections vintages has opened my eyes, there's a lot of A range potential in these older (The) Glenlivet's.

Nice bourbon taste, Strong, raw oakiness with hints of anise and raisins.  A very high B+
 
Dave
 
Oily sweet and nutty.  Lots of fruits of the red/darker intense flavors.  However, I could chug this one also.  Considering the cost, not really one I would want to guzzle.  Good stuff. 
Adam
 
Nose of oranges, caramel, cotton candy, and toffee.  There's also something like sesame candy, and something like traces of menthol.  On the palate, there are deep cereal grains and light caramels, with a dusting of tangy spice.  Finish is lengthy, continuing the theme in a slow fade.  Really tasty, elegant stuff. 
Mike
 
Rich sherry, chocolate orange, butter and vanilla on the nose. Palate is rich, raisin spice, chocolate and banana. Finish is smooth more of the same.  Nice.
