Whisky Reviews for Glenlivet 2007 vW

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.48 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A sherry whisky against the mainstream: D - ok, you expect something different and the bittern notes are then a little too dominant in my opinion. Where does this plastic grade actually come from?
    • Nose
      The alcohol is there, the nose stands out easily, but the sherry barrel brings fruity, nutty notes, in the background rather lighter fruits, also some nutmeg and juniper. With water everything has somehow moved into the right frame. Still well over 50%, nothing beats, a nice toffee sweetness is present, in addition to the spicy sherry notes, rather nutty than dried fruit, a few blackcurrants, but still a little own spice note, not unpleasant.
    • Taste
      Pure evil surprise. Pretty violent with some musty spice ... With water now, first clearly sweet toffee sherry notes, but then a splash of black pepper, which completely fills the mouth. After the second sip, the pepper comes back and pretty spicy, almost burnt and tart notes dominate the aroma.
    • Finish
      Pur first tart, saliva-stimulating the musty note remains, some plastic ... Even with water, he is surprisingly bitter and a certain plastic touch persists stubbornly.

    unlike other Glenlivets, it has a scent of bacon on the nose
