    Room temperature when drinking: 26℃

    Viewing Eyes: raw and fragrant Nose: toffee, condensed milk, brownie, blueberry cake, blueberry vinegar, some dried prunes, jujube cake. Dark fruit + spices. It seems that it is not far from the Wit 13 in memory.
    Taste Palate: Tart, ebony soup, cream rolls, bitter taste of black coffee, blueberry sauce, black chocolate and roasted charcoal. Although not very important, it is also full of barrels.
    Finish: Finish, Long, Walnut Casee, Candied Plum, Rock Sugar Peach Gum Body: Oily, light, less irritating, generally bitter

    Nose: 87/100

    When I was still crazy about MMA, this wine might be quite attractive to me. After drinking more, I found that it was completely reduced to ten times. It was a real skillful and creative thing in a single malt. Killed. Having said that, don’t Taiwanese take this kind of whisky to accompany their meals?
    • Nose
      One smell is the style of the Taiwanese. The heavy fruit with dark fruits and spices. I think I can understand why some people rate this wine higher. If let me describe it, it is a bit like the Billy Walker era. Na then matched with Macallan's decayed wood. Preserved fruit, candied fruit, dried plums, raisins, dried longan, persimmon cakes, Hotan jujube, toffee, vanilla sugar, chocolate, cinnamon sticks, black pepper, this may be the high-quality seasoned shery cask for mass-produced speyers. Final destination?
    • Taste
      The immature nuts with sour and astringent flavors were sautéed in a large iron pan and the caramel was all stuck on it. Shirley barrels, tangerine peel, fruit look, basically the same smell, but more or less brought out some winery genes, sweet and sour.

      Strong, medium fat, sweet, almost no acid, no tannins, astringent, moderately bitter, no spicy.
    • Finish
      For a long time, the Chinese medicine has a bitter bottom, black dried fruit, and burnt roasted seeds.

    This is a distinctive version of the Glenlivet, absolutely outstanding.
    We’ll leave behind talking about the color , and i want to talk about the finish, which was really long, hints of dried fruits .
    Probably the best in the series of the glenlivet even though its hard to compare to the 21

    Add three drops of water: the aroma becomes a brighter candied fruit, plum, berry sweet, licorice, chocolate, clove, cinnamon. The palate is turned into a more rounded candied sweet and sour taste, citrus, chocolate, cinnamon, wood, and pepper. Although the spice and pepper are more obvious, the original too much sweet and sour taste becomes a very comfortable salty sweet package. Covered in the mouth, more resistant to drinking.

    Conclusion: Shirley's cooked whisky always needs time to wait. After a half hour of standing, the aroma of this wine will give off the sweetness of berries, dried fruits and stewed fruits. It will be a pity to smell the fragrance slowly. The impact of the entrance is really too big. The sweet and sour taste is very strong on the tongue. Fortunately, the follow-up flavor performance can still be felt. I prefer the performance after adding water, just like you are eating a candied fruit.

      At the beginning of the cup, there are calm dried fruits, dark berries, walnut chocolate and roasted almonds. In the middle, ripe grapes are ripe, sherry, pepper and spices.

      After standing for 15 minutes, start to turn into raisins, preserves, stewed fruits, citrus peels, plums, toast, chocolate, cloves, cinnamon, licorice, spices
    • Taste
      85 85
      Thick and full of taste. Freshly, you can feel the sweet and salty sweetness, dried fruit, citrus, chocolate, toffee, malt, wooden tannins, and pepper.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length. Dried fruit, candied fruit, plum, salted caramel, chocolate bitterness, wooden tannins, walnuts, peppers, spices, sweet and sour taste stay in the mouth for a long time.
