Glenlivet 1974

Country: Scotland
Region: Speyside
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Gordon & MacPhail
ABV: 50.1%
Score: 92 points

Part of the Private Collection Decades series of Glenlivet single casks and aged in a first-fill sherry hogshead, this malt has a nose of baked apples, strawberries, vanilla, and chicken roasting in the oven. The taste is thick and rich, warm and spicy with cinnamon and touches of orange peel and pineapple. The finish is sweet, dry, and long with touches of orange peel and cocoa. Complex and varied.
