Finish : Long and drying, with hints of Anise, bitter fruit pulps, and burnt sugar.
a very enjoyable Glenlivet. The high ABV is a good start, and the flavours are well integrated, and quite spicy and racy. It’s not your everyday dram (for that you could go with the 12 year old), but sure is a well made dram.
