Whisky Reviews for Glenlivet 1997 vW

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. WLUO scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Based on a sample:
    Fragrant like a bouquet of fresh flowers. Fresh fruit: citrus, orange and white grapes. The finish could have been a bit longer, but with 'only' 46%, this Glenlivet still manages to leave a very mature impression.

    • Finish
      85 85
      Fruity and floral

  2. Koalafant scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sherry tonic with notes of dates, figs. Fairly mild with an alcoholic freshness
    • Taste
      Mild with aromas of dried fruits and oatcakes
    • Finish
      Medium long and ethereal

  3. Whyvern scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    Perfect as a dessert, it is liquid caramel - but also not a lot more. Probably one of a few whiskies that are perfect in non-cask-strength.
    • Nose
      Very sweet toffee.
    • Taste
      Again a lot of sweetness, caramel and a hint of sherry.
    • Finish
      Like a sweet it is gone too fast and you will have to take another sip...
