Tasting Notes by Volks

21 year old Glenlivet at 43%. Not overly expensive either. 150AUD duty free for a 21 year old whisky is pretty good value in my book. Cheaper than Chivas 18, Johnnie blue and Lagavulin Distillers edition

  • Nose: Dried banana, lemon, lime, honey caramel, light oak and tannins. With water really upped the complexity, there is more cereal malt in there, peach and pears come through.

  • Pallet: light body, candied fruit, glucose, wood spice some peach and just a hint of smoke With water spicier more tannins, peaches and pears come through again, banana note has completely gone

  • Finish: spicy, some tang, and savoury malt comes through With water really clean, almost stony, cereal grains, honey and a touch of peat.

  • Mark – neat 8.3 , with water 8.5

It's good not great, absolutely worth trying and a very pleasant dram, lovely on a got summers night
