I should start by saying that this is the first Glenlivet expression that I have tasted.
Nose: All about green apples. Some sniff suggesting even green apple pie. Although I never ate a green apple pie, I imagine it will smell like this. Behind the strong green apple smell, I have managed to identify a little bit of vanilla and even toffee.
Taste: The green apples have faded in the mouth, but they are still present. The palate gives place to a more complex mix of flavors than the unidimensional nose in my sense. Spices, nuts, chocolate and dried fruits are mixed in a nice balance.
Finish: Medium-long to long. Nice finish where the Glenlivet plays with dryness and wetness back and forth for our pleasure. All the flavors listed in the Taste are fading out beautifully.
I gave 20 for the nose because it is so unidimensional, however, it is very pleasant.
