Glenlivet 1994/2009 Adelphi

January 2, 2011

This sherried Glenlivet needs some water to calm it down. Quite richly flavoured overall, but the nose is a bit pungent and the palate lacks an aromatic counterpart to the spices. Good, but not great. – Rating: 82/100

The trademark fruity creaminess of Glenlivet is joined by nutty and caramel notes imparted by the French Oak casks. Very sippable – Rating: 83/100

This creamy and fruity malt is a very nice entry level dram, but it also offers enough complexity to satisfy more experienced palates. – Rating: 81/100

You don’t find younger sherried Glenlivetes very often, and this is quite a fine specimen. Rich and fruity with a nice spicniess that is just about right. – Rating: 84/100

A very nice and complex malt that should be enjoyed slowly. Needs quite a bit of water to soften the alcohol bite. – Score: 84/100
