Has the wow factor that separates the very good from the truly great.
1987, Aged 16 Years, Cask Strength
Year of Bottling
Nose: Gentle, but complex. Sultana cake, baked fruits, wild flowers, melting milk chocolate truffle. Rich, mellow and gorgeous!
Palate: Lively and exciting. Complex nose: sweet spices, apple juice. Good depth and mouthfeel.
Finish: Macaroon bars and light fruits.
Comment: Has the wow factor that separates the very good from the truly great.
Nose: Unmistakably Glenlivet. Appetising. Full basket of summer fruit. Becomes custardy in time.
Palate: Smooth and mellow. Melts in mouth like a ripe fruit. Generous sweetness. Ends drily and elegantly with nutty notes.
Finish: Medium long, spicy, slightly tangy and dry.
Comment: The rich fruity profile of Glenlivet blossoms at cask strength. So well balanced.
