  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The nose has blueberry pie, raisin, old leather, red wine and tobacco smoke.
    the palate is full of dark fruits with massive heavy sherry, too much for me.

    Not particularly stunning 1976 Grand Witt
    • Nose
      Smell: It's hard to see the Sherry Granville, salty cream cake, the typical dark flavor of the Sherry barrel, especially like the perfect Bordeaux wine, blueberry pie;
    • Taste
      Entrance: A sense of oil, like a glass of old cognac for half a century, but there are more malt aroma and fat aroma, staying in the mouth for a while... chocolate! Silky smooth~
    • Finish
      The rhyme: a hint of tannins gradually show, orange peel, raisins, cream chocolate.

    Tasted at Vroenhovense Whiskyfeesten 2017 9/14

    First sips the profile of The Glenlivet stays a bit above, afterwards it's quite only sherry

    Note by Serge Valentin from

    Glenlivet 1976/2001 (45%, Samaroli, sherry wood, 648 bottles)  I think this bottling has been done for Moon Import. Colour: mahogany. Nose: ah. It’s one of these very sherried malts that tended to nose a bit like some thick (yet superb) Demerara rums. Molasses, brown sugar, bags of raisins, marmalade, glazed chestnuts (it’s the season), then a looong development on various tiny herbs, both wild and cultivated. I’m thinking parsley, dill, chives, sage, savory, all that. Very nice soup ;-). Tends to become very chocolaty after five minutes. Mouth: typically Italian! It’s true that great Italian whisky importers and selectors, such as Mr Samaroli or Fiori, used to like their sherry monsters, perhaps because that was what the Italian market was asking for at that time. I have to say this one’s perfect, close to the greatest old armagnacs in style, with plenty of raisins, prunes, chocolate, and crystallised oranges. There’s also a touch of tar and pipe tobacco that’s totally lovely, plus a flinty side that keeps it ‘straight’. This is perfect. Finish: long, prune-y and raisiny, without ever becoming cloying or fattish. Comments: perfect. It’s Glenlivet that’s a little Macallanish, if I may. Quality’s extremely high (did I tell you?) The nose was fabulous.SGP:552 - 91 points.
