Nose
Clean, light and freshly minty. Good green apple intensity. Focused.
Palate
Fresh and medium-dry with a slight peppery heat. Water is needed to shake loose and delicate floral note.
Finish
Apples return.
Comment
A decent Glenlivet.

Martine Nouet

71
Nose
Shy and faint. Light, floral. Marshmallow. Citrussy. A distant note of strawberry candy.
Palate
Deceptively sweet. After that smooth start, a spicy burn bites the tongue, then fades away, not leaving many flavours. Second sip is better but still burning though. Pear drop, ginger.
Finish
Dry, fizzy and spicy.
Comment
Given its colour and shallow aromatic profile, this whisky has certainly “slept” for 31 years but the cask too. It probably started very tired.
