  • Intro:

    Distilled by Glenlivet, this is a new US release that focuses on the brands extra-aged expressions. It's bottled at 43% ABV and features the same combination of oak and sherry cask maturation featured in other expressions from the brand. It's aged for 21 years. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet papaya, honey, lemon, big notes of sherry and cream roll in as well. It's impressively fruity with notes like passionfruit colliding with more typical Single Malt notes with a sherried undertone.

  • Taste:

    Light on the palate, gentle and sweet. Honey, lemon poppyseed, sherried sweetness, currants, honey and stewed fruits. Dates. Faintly peppery.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium finish, rich with sherry and malt.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this has plenty going on, but fans of big, powerful, bold, cask strength sherry bombs will find it much too meek and balanced. If you crave balance and a gentle sip, this is for you.
