    ‘Simple but welcome gifts’

    N: Bold upfront grain and oak which seems much more gutsy that many more classically refined modern Glenlivets. Its very peppery and malty with chocolate, vanilla, caramel and a dank murkiness. Fairly bland start although the vibrancy is impressive.
    T: Wow, thats malty, the mouthful is like melted chocolate and cream and taste wise, milk chocolate fruity liqueurs with cream and that nondescript murkiness on the palate to the end, turning more cocoa like. Its a long journey to the finish although theres little complexity.
    F: Wonderful soft toffees here and the dank notes mixed with talc - aah, its a German herbal digestive! Very creamy still and hmm, heres a bizarre tasting note - the taste of a model Lamborghini i bought in Venice when i was young, you know that plastic, silicon packaging smell, the plastic parts, the metallic paint body….I guess i probably stuck it in my mouth at one point. Thats what kids do in order that they may have a smell and tasting reference for it decades later for a whisky that was distilled before they were born. Crazy world, crazy journey.
    C: Very simple and although it doesn’t quite perform greatly on any level to push its score any higher, what it does offer are welcome gifts indeed.
