    Delicious and mild, tasty and with an adult character for its age. Tastes and pleases!

    • Nose
      Light copper shimmers in the Premium Snifter, oily "legs" stick to the glass wall, fermented grapes and berries come into their own with a slightly musty appearance. Minimally sour fruit notes combine with slightly musty and rotten hints to a sherry nose characterized by dried fruits, toffee and caramel come to the fore, as well as a hint of strawberries and sweet cherries. Steamed leather, minimal sulfur, dry fruit flavors, delicious ...
    • Taste
      The Glenlivet flows smoothly and creamy over the tongue, sweet fruit aromas emerge velvety, followed by dry wood tones. The spiciness is minimal, while raisins, sweet cherries and dark strawberries stick on the tongue. A touch of caramel and milk chocolate, cocoa powder and a pinch of cinnamon. The taste and aftertaste quickly become blurred, the sweet and fruity elements stick mildly on the palate.
    • Finish
      Muted fruit notes, minimally dry and spicy wood, raisins and sweet cherries end in musty and rotten hints, a subtle sulfur note is barely noticeable. The initially muted and creamy elements take on noticeably volume in the aftertaste, with creamy milk chocolate and a hint of cocoa the aftertaste ends with hazelnuts and the musty fruit notes already mentioned.

    Well done SV. Very fruity and mouth coating berrylike Glenlivet. Candied fruits and the right amount of sherry in the mix with Glenlivet. Go for it! A bang for the buck!

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 10/10
    • Nose
      Sherry and candied fruit, plums, raisins, berries (currant, blackberry). Sweet honey.
    • Taste
      Sweet fruity sherry, candied fruit, red fruits, dark fruits, a bunch of berries again, some oak, chocolate, some espresso.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate with sherry and rum, leather, oak.

  5. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    As always, these bottlings from Signatory are really good. For the price there is nothing to complain about.
    What amazes me is the sharpness. But I do not feel it as unpleasant because I z. B. also like to eat spicy.

    But it can also be that I feel that now only spicy, because I tasted a week no whisky more. Something must go into the glass to find out. ;-)
    • Nose
      Of course, a lot of sherry. A mixture of sweet and sour. First sweet, ripe cherries and strawberries. Then it gets sourer. Raspberry. Jostabeere. Now raisins covered in chocolate. Then the wood comes through. Nutmeg. Hazelnut.
    • Taste
      Much sweeter in the mouth than in the nose. Creamy. Aroniahonig. Datteln. Grape juice. The sweetness decreases. Licorice. Blood orange. Then it gets spicier and the oak tingles neatly on the tongue. It even gets pretty sharp. Chilli. Black pepper. That's why there's a lot of drooling.
    • Finish
      The sharpness remains relatively long. Black tea with candy sugar. Leather. Chocolate.
