    Finish: middle and sweet with spices, oak, caramel and red apples notes.
    The Glenlivet Code is a well balanced, smooth and tasty whisky with light spinosity of youth. I gave 84 points.

    Something new from Glenlivet but perhaps a little too much on the new oak.

      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

      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.

      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.

      This is a fruit salad with wood. Apples, oranges, pineapples, bananas and mandarins. Pleasantly strong to graceful.

      Dozvuk is rather short but very intense, dry and spicy. Spices are mostly nutmeg and dried ginger.
