Glenlivet Scotch 21 Years Single Malt

Glenlivet Scotch 21 Years Single Malt 750ML        
Sku: 12167

So well knitted... The most oaky and least floral of the range. But age and a particular selection of casks has achieved a distinguished maturity, almost intimidating. Sherry notes give additional depth to the distillery character and a cakey sweetness. Aromas are perfectly melted, especially when The Glenlivet 21 Year Old is enjoyed without water. Wood is well integrated but firmly frames the aromatic palette. A very special dram to enjoy with dark chocolate and let pleasure linger late in the night.

Tasting notes
AMBER, OPULENT OAKINESS. FRUIT-CAKE, APPETIZING MALTINESS. NUTTY AND SPICY. DISTINGUISHED.

Dried cherries and apricots intermix with caramel on the slightly smoked nose. It is rich and spicy in the mouth with dark notes of coffee, chocolate and caramel flavors. The mouthfeel is smooth and coating. Rich and complex.

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. — P.P. (12/15/2009) — 96-100

Technical notes
NOSE
Without water: Opulent, mature. Sherry influence. An intricate array of fruit and wood. Christmas cake-like. Sultanas. Maraschino Cherry. Thick-cut marmalade. Oak panels in an old church. A cedary touch. Balsamic spices. Cubèbe pepper. A hint of eucalyptus. Tropical hardwood. Oak soon gives way to malty notes. Fruit and fibre cereal bowl. Toasted granary bread. Citrussy freshness. Orange and kumquat peel. Some cakey notes. A reminder of Grand Marnier soufflé.
With water: Water enlightens the fruity bouquet and brings out vanilla notes. Lighter notes of ripe peaches. Pear and marzipan pie. Luscious barley sugar aromas.
