Nose: Red apples coated with caramel, very malty, vanilla, pecan divinity (it's a nougat candy), lemon, coriander.

Taste: The pecan nougat is great! Sweet and nutty, apples, a bit of pepper and oak.

Finish: Herbal notes with a touch of vanilla and something different. Maybe peanuts? A good foundation of oak.

Considering my review of the Glenlivet 12 year old was somewhat controversial (I didn't like it at all really), I felt the need to review this very decent malt. It's fairly straight-forward, but is of good quality and makes for an very enjoyable dram.

I must try this, it's good to see distilleries release aged cask strength whiskies instead of overpriced young ABV monsters!

@lucadanna1985 Agreed! I'm relatively new to cask strength whiskies so I usually shy away from the young ones. I've tried most of the core Glenlivet lineup and my favourite is the nadurra, and although the 18 year old triumph nadurra isn't part of the core range, it is my favourite Glenlivet.
