Dram Review: SMWS 2.98 Glenlivet “Frothy Cappuccino”

[58.2%・13 Years Old・Distilled in 2003・Bottled in 2017・SMWS Bottling・Single Cask Release of 166 Bottles]

Nose:

Syrup drenched walnuts with a lemony undertone.  Thick caramel intercepted by a sharpness from the spirit and the wood.

Palate & Finish:

Cask-led vanilla with a thick creaminess which as the name of the dram has suggested, feels frothy.  Orchid fruits brushed with chocolate dust; quite a bite from the spices.

The spices run on with sprinkles of chocolate dust and cinnamon sugar.

Thoughts:

It’s been a while since the Society has bottled a Glenlivet, though on the punchy side this is still quite lively, welcome back you feisty “2”..
