Tasted as part of a flight of Glenlivet along with the 15 y/o French Oak and the 16 y/o Nadurra.

There's a lot going on here. Considerably complex with a darker edge to some of the younger Glenvlivet expression.

The aroma has elements of hot fudge, some cinammon,bitter-sweet chocolate.

The palate is medium-bodied and confirms the nose with a hint of sweets and smoke coming through.

The finish follows suit with just a hint of smoke and spiceness.

This one is complex; all the elements are very subtle. A very contemplative drink good for pondering the ways of the world.
