THE GLENLIVET 25 YEARS XXV 700ML
Colour: Rich amber, golden shades
Nose: Intense, deep and creamy. Exotic oakiness mixed with dark chocolate with scents of dried sultanas
Palate: Sweet at first, evolving into indulgent spice with a medley of ginger, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg. Incredibly long, rich and balanced finish
Silky, sweet, rich and intense… Some of the rarest of our whiskies, all of which have been aged for at least 25 years, this is a batch-produced whisky finished in first-fill sherry butts. Our team of experts individually selects each cask and monitors the whisky in its finishing process to make sure the Sherry casks add the subtlest sherry tones to an intense, silky and elegant whisky.
A super-premium entry in Glenlivet’s range, this has been finished for a couple of years in Oloroso casks – so an extra depth of flavour and silky sweetness is the order of the day.
“The Oloroso Sherry influence meshes beautifully with The Glenlivet’s signature sweet, floral, honey and malt notes, giving a nutty spiciness and quite intensely fruity palate, with raisins to the fore. The finish embraces steadily drying oak. A rich, complex and satisfying after dinner dram.” Gavin D. Smith, Whisky-Pages.com.
