Martine Nouet

Nose
Unmistakably Glenlivet. Appetising. Full basket of summer fruit. Becomes custardy in time.
Palate
Smooth and mellow. Melts in mouth like a ripe fruit. Generous sweetness. Ends drily and elegantly with nutty notes.
Finish
Medium long, spicy, slightly tangy and dry.
Comment
The rich fruity profile of Glenlivet blossoms at cask strength. So well balanced.

Dave Broom

Nose
Gentle, but complex. Sultana cake, baked fruits, wild flowers, melting milk chocolate truffle. Rich, mellow and gorgeous!
Palate
Lively and exciting. Complex nose: sweet spices, apple juice. Good depth and mouthfeel.
Finish
Macaroon bars and light fruits.
Comment
Has the wow factor that separates the very good from the truly great.
