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.
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.
n: rich nose of figs, fruit cake batter, dried strawberry, and vanilla malt. On the fruity and mouthwatering side. Buttered toffee, dark cherries, and chocolate.
t: very fruity and deep honeycomb with black cherry juice with a backbone of toffee and dark vanilla. This has a nice density to it and full of rich flavors; while not over powering the distillate. Finish is oaky and drying to counteract the initial sweetness. Nice and malty with full and robust flavour. Cinnamon glazed donuts for the finish. A great whisky to drink with nice depth and richness. [B+/A-]
