  1. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    For those who missed out on batch no.1, don’t fret. This hits the same vein and is even a little sweeter and “easier” than the first Glenlivet. Definitely a good PPR!
    • Nose
      Very similar to batch no. 1. Quite toffied, full of caramel and candied oranges. A brightly fruity sherry profile. Definitely canned pears, as well as a touch of pineapple. Nice!
    • Taste
      Juicy-spicy arrival. Quite pungently honeyed, herbal with eucalyptus, and peach puree. Rather sweet all the way through. Hardly any bitterness or tannins to be found here.
    • Finish
      Medium. Herbal honey, toffey, a touch of virgin oak as well.

  2. DerDennis! scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Similar to batch # 1 in the nose, but less complex and sharper. The taste is also stronger, spicy. The fruity has a slightly artificial touch, which then gets stuck in the finish. Solider paints, but does not get to the predecessor

    This Small Batch Glenlivet is a little Sherrybitch. Not very complex but tasty. Sherry is on the fruity side (oranges, mandarins, apples). The 48% are great. Very tasty in the mouth with clear oak and slight pepperiness. Mid-long fruity dry finish with oak and cocoa. That's fun. 87-88P

  8. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Full of fruity sherry, with lots of cherries, dark fruit juice bears and mint. Gradually, a dry Floralität follows, oak, malt and inlaid oranges. Really beautifull.
      With water: fruity with cherry chocolate, oak, vanilla and jaffacake.
    • Taste
      Very sherrytönig and dense. Wonderfully fruity with cherries, haribo and rosehips. Then there are pencil shavings, dried oranges and a woody spice.
      With water: lighter and floral. Lots of cherry, oranges in orange, pink grapefruit, gummi bears and a dry florality.
    • Finish
      Long and sherry-toned with pencil shavings, mint and steamed dried fruit.

  9. malthead-sven scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    ## tastes in parallel with batch no. 1 ##

    solid malt, but not quite as set as the slightly better batch 1
    • Nose
      mild sherry with a slight perfume note, as well as slightly sour, candied apple, flower meadow, trail mix
    • Taste
      initially thin and behavioral, slowly becoming woody, ripe cereals,
    • Finish
      Medium long, less sherry and more on the woody side

  10. AlexDRo scored this whisky 88 points Newbie

    Not very complex, but great value for the price. Pleasant and balanced.
