Amber in colour with sparkling copper shades. This 21 Year Old from Glenlivet displays opulent oakiness, with fruit-cake characters and appetizing maltiness. It's nutty and spicy which can only be described as being distiguished.
Comments: So well knitted - The most oaky and least floral of the range. But age and a particular selection of casks has achieved a distinguished maturity, almost intimidating. Sherry notes give additional depth to the distillery character and a cakey sweetness. Aromas are perfectly melted, especially when The Glenlivet 21 Year Old is enjoyed without water. Wood is well integrated but firmly frames the aromatic palette. A very special dram to enjoy with dark chocolate and let pleasure linger late in the night.
