Glenlivet 1954

Country: Scotland
Region: Speyside
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Gordon & MacPhail
ABV: 50.6%
Score: 96 points

Part of the Private Collection Decades release of Glenlivet single casks, this was aged in a first-fill sherry hogshead. The dry and dusty nose has notes of raisins, plums, figs and dates. The taste is sweet, but still spicy with a great balance of orange peel, cinnamon, and plums. The finish is long and dry with notes of red wine and sawdust. Complex and fascinating!
