  1. EvilAFI scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Sweet sherry influence, spice balanced, malt, a bit bitter, oak driven. Not bad, but not great.

    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.

  7. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    An interesting whisky which shows a new side to Glenlivet while still holding true to the distillery character.
    • Nose
      86 86
      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.
    • Taste
      86 86
      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.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short finish with sour apple peel and bitter oak.
