The Whisky Exchange, Glenlivet 1981

RRP £575

Recently we have seen a few long-aged Glenlivet single-cask bottlings. This differs from the others by having been finished for the last six years of its life in a Sherry butt. It has herbaceous aromas and is lightly woody. Menthol eucalyptus notes can also be found on the nose. The body is full and has floral flavours mixing with orris root. Parma violets come through with a touch of water, and the finish is dry and long.
