Whisky reviews for Glenlivet 1976 GM

4 users have left 4 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 90.29 points.

  1. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A classic sherry bomb. The Glenlivet character is a bit less present here, but it’s very, very good. It is not too dry or harsh in any way, which you often see with those types of sherry-matured whiskies from a certain age. This once again shows how good the cask management really is at Gordon & MacPhail, as it has resulted in a beautifully complex single malt.
    • Nose
      Absolutely stunning. Dried fruits, such as raisins and plums. Then black cherries. Oranges and a nice thick layer of dark chocolate. A hint of leather. Demerara sugar in the back. Followed by honey and also toffee. A little bit of maple syrup too. Water adds pears and hazelnuts.
    • Taste
      Really dark chocolate and toffee. Black tea, tobacco leaves and leather. Black cherries and a hint of red berries, but oranges too. Then a touch of balsamic vinegar. Followed by honey. An oak note, followed by spices, such as black pepper, and cloves. A little bit of ginger and a herbal note. A bit of water adds more fruitiness: pears, red apples and more of the oranges.
    • Finish
      Long with mostly oak, black pepper and liquorice. But also black tea and fresh raspberries.
