Bourbon cask – 56.7%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright amber
Nose: Honey, apples, grapes, lemon zest, polished wood, hints of ginger and nutmeg.
Palate: Meadow blossom honey, apple crumble with raisins, caramelized nuts and custard, hints of ginger and nutmeg.
Finish: Long, fruity and spightly spicy.
Overall: This is a typical Glenlivet with all trademark flavour elements. The cask influence after 33 years is not disturbing, but just at the perfect level to make it a high class dram.
Rating: 90/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
