Nose
Honey, vanilla, fudge and soft spices combine with big fruity notes of tangerine and mango.
Palate
Floral, with stewed fruit, brittle toffee, plus more honey and vanilla.
Finish
Grassy, peppery and drying, with a hint of orange.
Comment
Straightforward, easy-drinking Glenlivet at a fair price.

Nose
Barley, sherry and toffee fudge all make a pleasing presence felt.
Palate
An impressively well-rounded whisky with dark chocolate, espresso coffee notes balanced out with stewed fruit flavours.
Finish
Sweet honeyed finish with just a hint of dry tobacco.
Comment
This attractively priced whisky is a great example of how good non-age statement whiskies can be.
