Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 43%
The Glenlivet 21 year old is bottled in small batches from casks, hand selected at the peak of their maturity, from distiller archive.
COLOUR: Amber with sparkling copper shades.
NOSE: An opulent, mature nose with a sherry influence. An intricate array of wood and fruit: Christmas cake, sultanas, maraschino cherry. Water enlightens the fruity bouquet and brings out vanilla and lighter notes of ripe peaches. Pear and marzipan pie. Luscious barley sugar aromas.
PALATE: This full-bodied whisky is unctuous and mouth coating, almost syrupy. Oak holds the reins back, releasing a drying spiciness of cinnamon, ginger, walnut and dark chocolate.
FINISH: The finish is everlasting and warming with lingering presence of toasted hazelnuts and a full layer of liquorice.
