Glenlivet XXV 25 year old Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1043891 93 points Whisky Advocate

 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. (Vol. 17, #4)

Wine Spectator

 Just leave me alone with my Scotch. A parade of flavors hits on a succession of additional elements, offering sweetness from the fruit, citrus and mint character to larger notes of fig, roasted meat and leather. The long finish features all of the above, especially the unexpected but perfectly pleasing mint.  (2/2011)
