    Color: Dark Amber

    Nose: Nice, big sherry. Balsamic vinegar without the tang, red wine reduction over beef, dark sugars, tomato paste, unsweetened prune juice, This is the profile you likely bought the bottle or dram for seeing the age, strength, color, and provenance. So far, so good. As the above suggests, it is sherry-dominant, but it doesn't feel off-kilter or imbalanced. Impressive maturation for the relatively young age here.

    Taste: I've had different experiences with this one neat. Here, writing these notes, the arrival undiluted is pretty good. I'm not picking up much heat. Other times, I've noticed it more. In any event, it's certainly not unpalatable even at full strength then, just a bit rough. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy--exactly what I wanted out of this kind of dram. There's big flavor concentration, too. There's lush, dark fruit with an oak tinge. That's expected, but it's well-done. Water smooths it out, but because the strength and texture is so high, there's not really a trade-off there. A win-win. More spice comes out, but it's not unwelcome.

    Finish: You feel the cask here, spicy and drying.

    Comments: While there have subsequently been quite a few of them, this was one of the earlier bottlings in the "young, heavily-sherried, huge ABV" Glenlivets that the indies have had. Hell, Signatory did multiple TWE exclusives from this set. So while I was primarily interested initially for curio-value, I'm happy to report the dram is worthwhile on its own merits.

    A fantastic spicy nose! I can not get enough. Cinnamon, cloves, nuts, raspberries, cooked cherries.

    Sweet in the mouth, the alcohol content makes itself noticeable, of course, but the already got a good barrel, could also taste like a 16 year old.

    I like it very much! 91/100

    10 year old Glenlivet at 67%... for under 60 GBP. Couldn't pass it up, and glad I snagged a bottle when I did! It's a pretty straightforward sherry monster - with surprisingly good oak influence - and reminds me a lot of something like a Kavalan Solist. Super strong, super sherry, and really nothing wrong with that if it's what you're looking for. Would have grabbed a bunch of bottles of this if I could have! The most appealing, reasonable (price-wise; the ABV is a bruiser) whisky I've had in quite some time.
