- Sweet sherry influence, spice balanced, malt, a bit bitter, oak driven. Not bad, but not great.
- Colour: gold.
Nose: sweet with muffins, beewax, sweet fruits, apples, olive oil, powdered sugar and oak notes.
Mouth: sweet with sweet fruits, red apples, spices and vanilla notes.
Finish: middle and sweet with sweet fruits, oak, caramel and apples notes.
The Glenlivet Cipher is a well balanced, smooth, tasty and easy drinkable whisky. I gave 85 points.
- An interesting whisky which shows a new side to Glenlivet while still holding true to the distillery character.
Opens with oak notes both old and new. Sweet cotton candy backed up by big spicy notes of ginger and cinnamon tickling the nose. Freshly sliced red apple with the waxy skin still intact.
Big bite of new oak, spicy on the arrival with peppery ginger. Sweet note appears with cotton candy and boiled sweets. A touch of tinned pears arrives.
Short finish with sour apple peel and bitter oak.
