The Glenlivet XXV is the perfect tribute to the skill and judgement of the craftsmen involved in making this special whisky. The original new spirit character, fruity and floral, has been faithfully retained during years of careful maturation. The final finish in rare ex-sherry butts yields a sublime, intense whisky of powerful yet elegant character.
COLOUR – Rich amber with ripe gold hues.
NOSE – Intense, deep, creamy. The sherry shows itself with luscious fruity and spicy notes. Enticing scents of exotic wood. Creamier notes rising. Orange crème brülée; candied fruit; pineapple.
PALATE – Silky and caressing. Sweet at first then releasing a full bunch of spices; ginger, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg. Developing dark chocolate and orange peel flavours.
FINISH – Dry, spicy. Keeps teasing the tastebuds all the way through and comes back on a sweeter fruity note.
