Comment: Like entering a candy shop! A dram to remind you of your young years!
Nose: Mature but marvellously fruity and fragrant. Apple, jasmine tea and BBQ pineapple - there's even a hint of bubblegum in there. With water a fragrant sweetness like honeysuckle blossom, rose.
Palate: There's sufficient cask to add a lightly oily suppleness and toasted almond. The pineapples continue.
Finish: Long, refined and elegant.
Comment: A stunning Glenlivet and a superb example of the benefits of long relaxed maturation.
