  1. Blo scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    An old whisky rather nice without any defects but that does not transcend me either. Some younger (and cheaper) Glenlivet are more to my taste.
    Tasted at Whisky Live Paris 2015.
    • Nose
      Nose powerful enough and fresh. Sherry, sweet spices such as cloves and cinnamon. Some more vegetal (lily and licorice) and fruity (vanilla pineapple) come next. Nice nose, not at all flat and rather complex.
    • Taste
      Sweet-bitter attack on the currant grapes. Then evolve towards the sweet spices on a pepper ground.
    • Finish
      Rather long. Warm and at the same time this finish leaves a feeling of freshness mentholée.
