  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Note made on a single sip during a tasting evening. This malt would have deserved a deeper analysis, but ... on the spot: Enthusiasm: Nose 2/5 Mouth 3/5 Final 4/5 Whisky n ° 1583
    • Nose
      Way too wise compared to what I had on the same night. Volume of aromas a little weak. Ah, I feel that it comes!
    • Taste
      Very spicy, dried fruits, nicely ample.
    • Finish
      What a beautiful finish, intense and spicy!

    This pale amber colored whisky [I couldn't wuite figure out how to translate that to the color schemes allowed on this website] has some substantial heft to it, and a considerable though almost flinty edge. Aromas of vanilla, custard, honey-bread, and something grassy-to-herb-garden like, with some distinct malty richness present at first brush (the alcohol is apparent as well); water develops these further, with additional sweet caramel and toasted bread notes (and with the obvious dilution of alcoholic fumes). Flavor-wise, a remarkably fresh scent of citrus fruit emerges (not unlike a smidgen of lime zest flamed over the top, cocktail style); more vanilla and some subtle, though lovely, crème brûlée notes emerge, along with some spritely and lingering acidity to balance off the shortbread and slightly old buttered popcorn finish. This dram has depth, character, a creamy body and just enough fight left in it to keep it really, really interesting. A great and rare dram from the Glenlivet Distillery.

      shortbread, slightly old buttered popcorn,citrus-like acidity, and with subtle crème brûlée notes following on from the finish.
