    So there's nothing to talk about here. This bottle is one of the absolute PLV frontrunners. The whisky is for the most called prices an absolute buy recommendation.
    END of the announcement!

      Very aromatic. With fine spices and woody notes. Immediately caramel is there and in the background the fruitiness and freshness that Glenlivet also knows. Now sweet vanilla with light apple Helene. Fine!
    • Taste
      86 86
      Now stronger aromas of caramel and vanilla and everything combined with wood and herbs. The apple Helene answers again and a hint of cider. Very round and creamy. Then slightly sparkling reinforced by a little pepper. The mouth sounds like orange peel, (not bitter) some oak and a hint of salt and honey. Well done.

      Unfortunately, only medium to short but with a minty freshness. Few notes of mirabelle plums. Dry, it reminds you of a warm wood. A hint of sweet nuttiness lingers a bit longer.
      From now on it is always on the shelf.

    A complex quality dram. 

    (Rating interval 84-88)
    • Nose
      Over ripe pears, pear cider, oak and cedar wood, red berries are playing in the background, I am thinking strawberries. Raisins and nutmeg together with some distant smoke. 
    • Taste
      Sweet and mild cinnamon and cardamom, some organic solvent, still pears, almost baked or canned pears with cream. Sweet oak
    • Finish
      The finish is short to medium in length, very dry and there are plenty with wood, honey and pepper. The finish returns in a second wave of all spice, brown sugar, red berries and cedar wood, much weaker now.
