Nose
Big sherry nose, toffee, stewed fruits.
Palate
Lively sherry, mixed spices, caramel, a hint of ginger. Nimble for its age.
Finish
Lingering caramel; not overly long, but lacking the pepperiness that could be a peril here.
Comment
This example has stood up to its 32 years in the cask very well. A good example of how supple an old Glenlivet can be.

Dave Broom

82
Nose
Rich. Cooked plum, Christmas cake, then tomato soup, balsamic notes. With water, tomato leaf, fig. Has balance and richness. Intriguing.
Palate
Good weight but not too tannic. A hint of smoke, violet, chicory and rotten fruits.
Finish
Ripe, oaky. Some smoke?
Comment
A fine whisky, just lacking the finesse and balance of the 1974.
