This exceptionally old Glenlivet has seen some time in first fill Oloroso Sherry casks. Comes packaged in a sleek timber presentation box.

Tasting note:
[Cursory notes from a 20ml sample]... Glorious, brilliant mahogany colour. The aromas slowly yield scents of fruit cake, sweet barley, dark chocolate, vanilla and a hint of bay leaf. A big barley burst is checked by heavy vanilla before the oak tannins kick in. Finishes firm and dry. A few drops of water bring out confectionary / bubble gum scents. Super soft Speyside. 43% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Finished in first-fill sherry casks for two years. My feeling on any whisky finished in a different cask is this: it should give as much to the flavor profile as it takes away. In this instance, I feel it has, and more. It’s not as nimble as younger versions, but the sherry, along with the extra aging, contributes a silky texture and a richer, fuller dimension to the whisky. I can still detect some of the peach, vanilla, tropical fruit, and honeyed malt I enjoy in younger expressions, but its key flavor components are toffee, honey-dipped citrus, red licorice, chocolate-covered almonds, and fig, along with dried spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, mint tea) that emerges on the palate and peaks on the finish. The flavors are seamless and elegantly balanced.

..blindfolded, I might have marked this down as a bourbon with a gender crisis... the nose sends this into superstar status, though for all its brilliance, it's a bit like driving a Mercedes E320 with the engine of a Ford Anglia. 91 points. - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2008
