  1. James.Braddock scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    For under 50 € an outstanding whisky, which earns 89 points absolutely. Not these modern young UA bottlings from the wet sherry keg that are just pushing and otherwise rather one-dimensional, but a fine, complex sherry whisky that I'm sure I'm going to deal with more often.
    • Nose
      Chocolate and honey, subtle sherry and Christmas spices
    • Taste
      Always chocolaty basic tone, with honey and orange notes, with wax and coffee hints. The Glenlivettypische flowery sometimes seems through.
    • Finish
      Here comes the oak and the milk chocolate goes into bitter chocolate. The finish is medium long

    —- blind tasting —-

    I am not particularly enthusiastic.
    • Nose
      A little restrained, then sweet sherry, with a slight note of sulfur behind. With a little time, a light peach with vanilla will come through. The alcohol stings.
    • Taste
      Hot alcohol, then sweet notes, bitterness and something floral on the second sip.
    • Finish
      Medium length, initially sweet then spicy and then becoming bitter.

  4. Axel_87 scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      Very sweet, distinct aromas of peach and overripe fruit, honey, chocolate typical Glenlivet floweriness
    • Taste
      Very sweet, honey with peach, sticky, fresh apples and pears, citrus notes, baked peach, very fresh
    • Finish
      Medium length, slightly sweet and sticky, notes of chocolate, slightly bitter at the end, honey and floral notes again

  5. ErrHaBe did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    This one leaves me at a loss. On the one hand, it has a distinctly strong sherry profile with beautiful fruit aromas and chocolate. On the other hand there is a sticky sweetness that I find somehow off-putting. You almost forget that you have whisky in your glass. Depending on the form of the day, one or the other sensation dominates more. Apparently the barrels were very active, if not to say "wet".

    But even if it looks a bit young and unbalanced, it has a good price-performance ratio.
    • Nose
      Sherry! Sweet grape juice and clear Oloroso / PX notes. Walnuts. In addition, a mixture of light and dark fruits, marzipan, creme brulee and a little black pepper. A roomy, oily mouthfeel contrasts with a gruff alcohol note. With water, the PX note and sweetness become more dominant, plus a little milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      Sweet, sherry, vanilla milk or pudding, cherry liqueur, milk chocolate. At some point the distillery profile with the apples and pears will also be recognizable. Slightly sticky in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Medium length and mild. Still sweet and fruity. In the end there is dryness. The alcohol remains slightly gruff until the end.

  6. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This is snacking from an excellent price-quality ratio!
    • Nose
      Raisin, plum, raspberry, mandarin. Red fruit salad.
    • Taste
      Earthy and oily, then a transition to plum, fig, and blackberry. A bit of citrus in the background.
    • Finish
      Long and satisfying. Sweet plum and blackberry remain. Delicious!

  7. malthead-sven scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    ## tasted in parallel with batch no. 3 ##

    A classic sherry malt but without much fruitiness. Compared to the batch 3, he has the slightly smoother nose.
    • Nose
      classic nutty sherry, without the slightly sour note of Batch 3, raisins, leather laces, loamy soil
    • Taste
      oily, caramel cream sweets, Storck giants, dry
    • Finish
      Now also woody, medium long
