Nose
Mature but marvellously fruity and fragrant. Apple, jasmine tea and BBQ pineapple - there's even a hint of bubblegum in there. With water a fragrant sweetness like honeysuckle blossom, rose.
Palate
There's sufficient cask to add a lightly oily suppleness and toasted almond. The pineapples continue.
Finish
Long, refined and elegant.
Comment
A stunning Glenlivet and a superb example of the benefits of long relaxed maturation.

Nose
Intense, grassy. Pear drop. Quite fruity.
Palate
Sweet and velvety.Vanilla syrup. Poached pears. ‘Bonbon anglais.' A hint of coconut.
Finish
Fruity and slightly spicy.
Comment
Like entering a candy shop! A dram to remind you of your young years!
