A super-premium entry in Glenlivet's range, this has been finished for a couple of years in Oloroso casks - so an extra depth of flavour and silky sweetness is the order of the day.
"The Oloroso Sherry influence meshes beautifully with The Glenlivet’s signature sweet, floral, honey and malt notes, giving a nutty spiciness and quite intensely fruity palate, with raisins to the fore. The finish embraces steadily drying oak. A rich, complex and satisfying after dinner dram." Gavin D. Smith, Whisky-Pages.com. IWSC 2012 - Gold Medal - Whisky - Scotch

I usually drink the 18 with friends. Yesterday I had the 25 and it was an incredible experience. The flavor was outstanding

The quality of this dram is not lost at any level. The box is almost like an intriguing puzzle box and the enclosed certificate signed by distillery, warehouse and quality control key figures in addition to the Master Distiller signing the bottle adds to the mystique of this bottle.

drinking this was an intriguing experience...I was reminded very strongly of amantillado, no doubt due to the sherry casks. it took a good while for this whiskey to grow on me...my only other super-premium experience was with JW Blue. At length, though, this whiskey grew on me...wonderful play of flavors, mostly based on the sherry, and an absolutely luxuriant finish :)

IS THE GLENLIVET XX5 A COLLECTIBLE WHISKY AND WHAT WOULD IT BE WORTH NOW
- anonymous, 6th Jan '10
The first time I tried the 18 year old I knew that was the scotch for me... then I tried the 25. Hands down the most perfect sipper I've had to date...

I was actually a little disappointed. Tastes like Glen Livet, nice and smooth, but the finish is very, very short.
