The Glenlivet Scotch Single Malt 21 Year Archive

750ML        
Sku: 008524

The 21 Year Old is produced in small, bespoke batches. Each cask is nosed and approved, making every batch unique. A sizable inventory of whisky of this age is extremely rare and only the best are selected for this expression. The complex combination of cask types imparts richness, intensity and a long finish to the whisky.

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.
 Wine Enthusiast 96 points (Dec 2009)
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
