    Something new from Glenlivet but perhaps a little too much on the new oak.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Very Glenlivet, pears and green apples on arrival with a sweet touch of toffee. Little burnt wood in the back with a soft peppery note.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Strong and spicy, lots of ginger and pepper here. New oak with some tree sap. Boiled sweets and liquorice. Sour apple notes creeping at the back.

    It's good whisky, but if it was 1500. And there would still be bottles I'd rather buy.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Strong vanilla, citrus, apple, honey. Overall, the scent is a lot of fruity to compot and pleasantly sweet. There are tones of sherry and bitter chocolate.
    • Taste

      This is a fruit salad with wood. Apples, oranges, pineapples, bananas and mandarins. Pleasantly strong to graceful.
    • Finish
      76 76
      Dozvuk is rather short but very intense, dry and spicy. Spices are mostly nutmeg and dried ginger.

    • Taste
      oily and silky on the palate slightly raisins, some oak increases, spicy, sweetness, a little peach, licorice great !! later wild berries
    • Finish
      medium long Oak, sweetness, raisin, dark fruit, later it becomes bitter with roasted aromas and bitter chocolate astringent

    Nose: the first thing I noticed was a sweet, slightly fragrant winey side. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were Portuguese Moscatel or Madeira casks involved. Juicy fruits like red apples and baked peaches. Orange peel. Toffee notes and cinnamon. Light marshmallow. A touch of sourness as well. Subtle floral notes stand out after a while (a hint towards French oak perhaps). 

    Mouth: starts sweet and rather fruity, with oranges (later also candied peels), hints of baked pineapple and subtle banana. The spices quickly set in, bringing ginger and nutmeg, as well as an oakiness and liquorice roots. 

    Finish: medium, drier, still some oranges but now mainly the spices talking.

    Nice one, better than Cipher in my book. Good balance between fruity sweetness and oak spices. Value for money is quite good even without the whole code-breaking element.
