Glenlivet 18 Year Old EngravingSpeyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky £99.95 (£128.50 per litre, plus £10 for engraving)
from Billy Abbott
- Nose: Dark chocolate, glacé cherries, rich fruit, cream and biscuits. Suggestions of cherry blossom and crème brûlée, the latter marrying the cream, dark notes, biscuity vanilla and sugary sweetness together nicely.
- Palate: Thick, with lots of cream running on to sweet cherry, stewed apple and orange peel. Water brings out more sweet vanilla from the creaminess.
- Finish: Dry, with sharp oak and spice.
