Tasting Notes

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.
