I think the stuff from the last 5 to 6 years is much improved over the ones I had when I first started out back in the 1990s. Or maybe I just have a changed palate.... :lol:

Or, like me, in the 1970s-1980s. Undoubtedly, tighter control over distillation runs, better cask management and greater consistency have all had a positive effect on more recent releases. There seems to be an increased depth and roundness to Glenlivet 12 Year Old over the last few years.

I've had a few of the tax stamp Livet 12s. They are interesting in that they have a very viney character. Granted, these were opened some 30 years after put on the shelves... :)
