[48.6%・38 Years Old・Distilled in 1973・Bottled in 2012・Berry Bros & Rudd Bottling・Cask No. 10658・Single Cask Release]
Beautiful aromas of fruity nectar, vanilla and ripe banana peels swirling together with minerals as tame mahogany and a lager note continue to develop in a stately manner.
Palate & Finish:
Red tea and juicy cherries unfolding out of the velvety mouthfeel of maple syrup and lemony goodness, a nick of ginger comes along on the mid-palate as green plums and popcorn melt classily into the background.
Espresso and bitter chocolate in the finish but also hints of light white peaches to give the dram a subtly uplifting end.
Such a gracefully presented Sherried Glenlivet, its luscious fruitiness at this age is particular alluring.
