About the Whisky:
After maturing in bourbon and sherry casks for many years, The Glenlivet whisky is finished in ex-cognac casks for at least 6 months, creating a uniquely rich and intense flavor.
NOSE: Bursting with sweet and fruity aromas. Rich in honey and apricot jam, with notes of sweet cinnamon bread and a subtle sensation of spicy liquorice.
TASTE: Succulent flavors of mandarins in syrup, ripe poached pears and chocolate-dipped raisins.
FINISH: Incredibly smooth and luscious.
93 Points, Top 100 of 2019 - Wine Enthusiast
"Bright copper in the glass, the sweet aromas suggest maple and allspice. The light, drying palate echoes that maple hint alongside grapefruit peel tones, finishing with a flurry of baking spice and mouthwatering lemon peel. A drop of water coaxes a gentle waft of smoke. Overall a delicate, ethereal sipper."
90 Points - Whisky Advocate
"This U.S.-exclusive release was initially aged in first-fill American oak sherry casks before a period of finishing in cognac casks. Spicy red wine notes on the notably aromatic nose, with vanilla and light cinnamon. Good texture in the mouth, sweet, and very approachable, with tangerines, toffee, dates, sultanas, and milk chocolate. Liqueur chocolates in the smooth, lengthy finish. Not overly complex, but robust and extremely drinkable."
