The most oaky and least floral of the Glenlivet range, with 21 years maturation, resulting in a single malt, so silky-smooth, that it can be enjoyed without water. Unctuous, mouth-coating, with layers of flavours; sultana cake, ginger biscuits and dark chocolate. Warming and deliciously nutty on the finish with a full layer of licorice. A very special dram.

Amber with sparkling copper shades.
An opulent, mature nose with a sherry influence. An intricate array of wood and fruit: Christmas cake, sultanas, maraschino cherry. Water enlightens the fruity bouquet and brings out vanilla and lighter notes of ripe peaches. Pear and marzipan pie. Luscious barley sugar aromas.
This full-bodied whisky is unctuous and mouth coating, almost syrupy. Oak holds the reins back, releasing a drying spiciness of cinnamon, ginger, walnut and dark chocolate.
The finish is everlasting and warming with lingering presence of toasted hazelnuts and a full layer of liquorice
