Glenlivet 'Signatory' 2006 / 14 years Old Sherry Cask Aged
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky 62.9%
Hailing from one of Scotland's most famous distilleries, this new release from Signatory Vintage was selected from a 1st fill ex-sherry butt, laid down in 2006 and aged for 14 years. Though it has a high natural strength at 62.9%, it is remarkably approachable and very aromatic. Apples galore are on show here, this Glenlivet's signature flavour is reminiscent of a freshly baked apple stuffed with plump raisins, brown sugar and walnuts. With water, the flavour opens up with a touch of hay and the honey, citrus and spiced quality of a warming hot toddy. A fine example of one of the most definitive distilleries in the world.
