Glenlivet 21 Year Old Archive Edition
So well knitted... The most oaky and least floral of the range. But age and particular selection of barrels has achieved a distinguished maturity, almost intimidating. Sherry notes give additional depth to the distillery character and a cakey sweetness. Aromas are perfectly malted, especially when The Glenlivet is enjoyed with water. Wood is well integrated but firmly frames the aromatic palate. A very special dram to enjoy with dark chocolate and let pleasure linger late at night.
96-100 points: Wine Enthusiast
"Opening bouquet offers sedate fragrances of dried flowers and malted barley; aeration stimulates marginally bigger aromas of dried yellow fruit (baked banana), toasty oak barrel and still-vigorous spirit. Palate entry is succulent, honeyed and luscious; midpalate tastes of dates, figs, S’mores, cocoa butter, nougat and dark fudge. Finishes oily, buttery, honey-sweet and focused."
93 points- Whisky Advocate
"Amber chestnut color. Aromas of mature oak, leather, ripe fruit, and toffee, are very deep and well balanced. Its flavors are rich and enveloping, with notes of treacle, toffee, roasted nuts, and a long, spicy, woody finish that lingers."
