Aberlour-Glenlivet 8 Year Old Reviews
1 Customer Review
My 75 year old father and my stepmother are moving into a house that will require less rigourous upkeep, and I helped them clear out some areas of the old house, including the wine cellar which also houses a wide variety of bottles of 'booze' from different parts of the world. This square bottle of scotch was already opened, with about three ounces missing, presumably into a fortunate mouth. While the bottle's appearance led me to believe that the quality might disappoint, I was happily mistaken. I would throw caution to the wind and simply say it tastes to me like a mixture of The Glenlivet 12 years old, and The Balvenie Triple Cask 12 years old... Which, for me, is odly an enhancement to both of those whiskey's, not that I ever thought they needed a boost. So would I recommend buying this at?299, as I saw on this page... No, because I'm sure one can buy a bottle of both those 12 year olds, combined, for less, and simply mix them 1:1 for a very similar taste. But do I recommend trying this 1970's scotch if you get a chance? Sure thing, at least so that you can see if you come to the same conclusion that I did, or if you taste it a completely different way. AO.
