n: Vanilla cake dough, maple and sticky honey. Hint of pink bubblegum and more red berry jam. Faint hint of sulphur and tar.
t: very rich and dense - dried strawberries, dense oak, and dark vanilla throughout. Bit of cherry cough syrup density and sweetness with a white chocolate waxyness in the finish. More chewy oak and tobacco in the long end. Delicious - a treat of a whisky to sip on. [A-/B+]
The cask strength really made this a better whisky than the previous 1996 Glenlivet 19 Year Old "K&L Exclusive" Signatory 46%ABV, Cask #105477 release.
