Whisky reviews for Glenlivet 17-year-old - Josie

3 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 86.33 points.

  1. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A nice single cask expression from The Glenlivet but nothing too amazing. 
    • Nose
      Stewed pears and baked apples, sprinklings of cinnamon and nutmeg with a cherry on top. Some hints of barley sugar in there as well.

      With water the fruits make way for more sugar and more spice. 
    • Taste
      Sticky dessert cherries with marmalade and liquorice. Spicy on the tongue, plenty of alcohol burn on the tongue though.

      With water, palate becomes a lot thinner and does not gain much. 
    • Finish
      Medium with some soft cinnamon spice and barley sugar.

  4. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A very rare single cask Glenlivet from the 1994 vintage, Josie takes its

    name from Glenlivet`s underground spring and was matured in a first

    fill sherry butt that yielded 464 bottles. Glenlivet Josie has been

    bottled at its full cask strength without chill-filtration. Described as

    having raisin & fruitcake aromas, with flavours of almonds &

    marmalade.
