My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Fresh apples, lemon zest, vanilla, candy floss, polished wood, hints of nutmeg.
Palate: Apples, lemon and a little grapefruit, vanilla fudge, ginger and nutmeg, hints of pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: The age doesn’t really show here, a nice and clean Glenlivet in the typical house style.
Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
