Michael Jackson

Nose
Lots of fruity, fresh-apple, oak extract.
Palate
Firm, rich, rounded. Dessert apples, peaches, honey.
Finish
Crisp, clean, oakiness.
Comment
The oak does not dominate, but is quite powerful for such an elegant malt.

Jim Murray

Nose
Heady stuff for a Glenlivet this age; almost perfumed in style but it is oak that pulls the strings.
Palate
Wallopping oakiness produces a prickly spice and chewy, spectacularly beautiful sweet malt.
Finish
Big toffee and spice with countless oak rings.
Comment
It's The Glenlivet. But not as we know it. The oak is extraordinary, but the bitter-sweet sync impresses most.
