    Nose: sweet flavours; honey and some citrus (i'm not sure)Taste: At first a
    bit sharp as of the height of alcohol percentage but soon more soothing, sweet
    and spicy, multiple fresh fruits (can't specify witch).Finish: long with sweet taste but also spiciness, a bit dry in the mouth but a lot of sweet flavors
    An interesting and pleasant whisky.

    N: without water: when we say "Speyside malt" ... From the very beginning this unmistakable taste is recognized in the context of a generously perfumed whisky. There is a really marked sugariness, perhaps given by the ex-bourbon first fill barrels. The analogy with honey biscuits seems to us the perfect synthesis between maltiness and sweetness; and again, so much almond followed, a little distant, from the fruity side, which without water remains a little hidden (ripe pear and raisins). You also hear that smell of apples and plums cooked for us so tied to the old days of childhood ... With water: the vanilla side is accentuated and pleasing references to tropical fruit emerge. P: an incipit a thread too alcoholic, perhaps, but you can forgive thanks to a simultaneous explosion of malt and sweet almonds. In this version there are only "moments" of tropical fruit and it is a pity; in fact, we decided to buy a bottle (also considering the low price of 55 euros) tasting an obviously different batch, in which the exotic fruit was completely predominant and spectacular. Surely in our dram we still note the pear - so dear to Glenlivet - in a palate extremely consistent with the nose and that does not change then with the addition of a few drops of water. Perhaps there is some hazelnut and somebody could venture to tell of a "spicy tingle". F: still malt and almond, which does not fade in the vegetable, bitter but remains sweetish. Intense and sugary, with an extraordinary absence of any hint of wood. Finally, emblematic of the character of this whisky is the smell of the empty glass: honey biscuits! In short, we are faced with an unequivocal declaration of love pronounced for the main ingredient of Scotch whisky: malt malt malt !!! The 16 years in barrels first fill then strengthen the whole, contributing in our opinion to bring a full-bodied sweetness. In the long run, however, this profile is not enough to make us lose our head (in regret, perhaps, of that tropical fruit ...) http://whiskyfacile.com/2012/05/25/glenlivet-16-yo-nadurra-2009-ob-542/

    Not being a Glenlivet fan 'pur sang', this one belongs to my favorite distillery bottlings. Fresh, woody and fruity, oily and with body.

    It all started so wonderfully but the finish really let this one down.

      Classic Glenlivet. An abundance of pineapples and mango, dried bananas. Quite close to the 1991 Triumph bottling. Oak chips and lollipop sticks. With time a creaminess appears.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Strong, plenty of spice from the casks, a bit alcohol burn as well. Still fruity, and some floral notes coming through. A little toasted oak.
    • Finish
      83 83
      A tad short, warm spice and a little of those oak chips.

    • Nose
      Gummy bears, an incredible fruit spectrum, from apples to apricot and lemon, so sweet, but also with some fresh notes. It also has a bit of perfume over time, light alcohol in the nose, but also some dusty oak plank in the background.
    • Taste
      quite strong, but still very sweet, fruity, but also a few spicy notes are there, oak, slight bitterness.
    • Finish
      First, a bit of barrel spice is noticeable, then another idea of ​​fruit, before slightly metallic notes and some aspirin appear and a few more bitter oak notes come to an end, just like apple pie burned to the end.

    Nice Bourboncask whisky, not quite mine and not stunning, but good standard
    • Nose
      Flower meadow, some alcohol comes through, fine citrus aromas, vanilla, honey
    • Taste
      Extreme Bourboncask, vanilla & citrus bomb, some pineapple, grapefruit in between, limes, a few bouquets, also a bit burning at 54% unfortunately, but still drinkable, with a second sip of apricot and yellow fruits
    • Finish
      Lime with shell, dry oak and some vanilla, quite pleasant, medium long
