Gets better as the bottle level reduces. Added water increases bitterness. I let mine sit in the glass an hour or so to open up. Nice nose, warm smooth palate, nice finish. Other than the bitter note, I like it. If I had to chose between 16 year olds though, I'd select the Lagavulin over this one every time.

Smooth and fruity. Extremely well balanced. A typically successful Glenlivet in every regard. No chill-filtering and/or coloring, this dram is a gem. Great price-quality ratio also. An pleasure and a must try for every scotch enthusiast.
