The Glenlivet 18 Years Old

The Glenlivet 18 Years Old

Bronze Medal 2015

Fir trees, astringent, grapefruit, hot nose! Big heat on the palate, then peppery spice reminscent of a younger dram; a pushy adolescent. A sweetness emerges that wasn't anticipated on the nose. Medium finish with the spice building. Water calms this dram, but I prefer it without.
