I can understand why. The newest one (on the shelf currently) is much more fruity/less malty than the one from about 10 years ago. I can't say that one is better; they're just a little different. I think I could hand either verions to someone and say, "This is what Glenlivet is about."

I need to head off to run some errands. Thank you Ian for joining us, and now I have to go out and pick up an 18 for further research.

Ian,

It's great to get together in a forum such as this. Thank you so much for coming in.

I'm just wondering (off-topic I know), but do Scots root for or against England during the World Cup?

It's a hard thing over here for people to understand that there is a difference between Scotland, England and the UK. I always am rooting for the US to make it out of group play. :roll: I'm a fan of both Brasil and the Netherlands for their style of play. I really don't care for the Italians or French. Again, style of play.

Glenlivet 1994 14yo 61% Adelphi
n: other times it was full of smell, tonight after giving the whisky some time it is smelling 'dry' and that's about it. after water and some more time: hints of tobacco. more water again, finally things start happening: apple jam, malts, grass, vanill, honey, the dyry smell keeps returning, it smells like shells on the beach, reminds me of Bowmore Enigma.
t: sweet and citrus with hints of coffee
f: some more of the taste remaining.
c: not so good this one. I remember this one being better a few weeks ago when I opened the sample, so maybe the sample went bad.
