  2. DramWhisky scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    (24/ 25)  Incredibly well balanced. Overall a very solid whisky, definitely something worth keeping around if the price is right.
    • Nose
      ( 22/25)  A hint of toasted oak, light spices, dried apples, dried cranberries, coconut and pineapple.
    • Taste
      ( 21/25) Apparent coconut and honey from the get go.  Sweet and simple, distinctively glenlivet*, but definitely deeper warmer flavors than the typical 12. *Sometimes it is easy to identify a definitive distillery profile, and I have a hard time putting words to it, but this has the same thread of tastes that I have had through many bottles of the 12 yo OB, a first fill sherry IB, and 16yo CS Nadurra.   I think it is characterized by the sweet refreshing tropical flavors, often lead by coconut and vanilla.
    • Finish
      ( 22/25) Honey over Toasted grains, vanilla and toasted coconut.
