    In my opinion: This is an amazing whisky! While tasting you can truly comprehend the passing of time, needed to gain depth and knowledge. This is a work of patience. Beautiful aroma with hints of sweetness, sourness and some surprising tones.

      Smooth odeur; very strong with a great aroma of butter. Hint of toffee, and a hint of cotton.

      This Glenlivet is a true masters product, well crafted and balanced. We get a hint of sourness with orange geste, warm apples in the oven, pear and pie. Although all these components are considered to be warm and a bit ambient like a brown pub, this whisky gives something fresh -almost like minty (mentol candy)…

      A balanced aftertaste, hints of cardamon and chicory, sensible and soft, royal and pleasing. I don't know why but it is very pleasing... A drink for Kings and Queens!
