Dram Review: Cadenhead Small Batch from Linkwood-Glenlivet Distillery Aged 24 Years

[50.9%・24 Years Old・Distilled in 1992・Bottled in 2017・Cadenhead Bottling・Limited Release of 384 Bottles]

Nose:

Vanilla and marshmallow, fine honey with a mellow layer of candle wax. Spirited with the light oak mingling with clean pasture and a mild floral note. It’s quite composed.

Palate & Finish:

Gorgeous gooey honey infused with vibrant tropical fruits. Excellent mouthfeel of sweetness and tangly spices as the vanilla is perfectly laid out together with some tangerines and grapefruits.

A hint grassy with honey softly brushing on fruit peels in the finish.

Thoughts:

Simple dram, immense enjoyment; the textbook Speyside nectar of the modern days..
