    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 258 bottles from cask no. 55486
    The Glenlivet was the first malt to win a reputation beyond Scotland, and the first distillery on Speyside to be licensed. This cask, a re-fill sherry hogshead, has given its contents a glorious deep amber colour, although the first impression on the nose is not overly oaky. Rather, we were reminded of rum and raisin ice cream, then sultanas or prunes swollen in liquor, glace fruits (particularly orange peel), nuts and fruit-cake mix, and behind this some scented wood (cedar balls). A little water brings out a light boat-varnish aroma, but retains the fruitiness and cedar-wood, but be careful how much you add. A big mouthfeel; very sweet flavour to start, then drying gently to a medium-length finish. The overall impression is subtle and reserved: a genteel example of this make.
