Glenlivet 1982

Country: Scotland

ABV: 52.2%
Score: 89 points

This is a dark gold dram, and the nose is dry with hints of brown sugar, vanilla, grass, and cola. The taste is thick with an intense spiciness of chili peppers and cilantro, but still has honey-sweet notes underneath. Water mutes the spices and cranks up the honey, and the finish is caramel candy with a slight tartness and a hint of mint.
