12 Year Old Signatory for TWE
- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Made at Glenlivet distillery in 2007, this 12-year-old single malt was matured in a single first-fill sherry hogshead before being bottled in March 2019 by Signatory Vintage for The Whisky Exchange's 20th Anniversary. The latest in a series of youthful sherry-matured whiskies that we've bottled with Signatory, it balances rich dried fruits with lively citrus notes.
Glenlivet 2007 Reviews
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Red and orange boiled sweets, with floral notes on top and raisins underneath. The fruit is intense and pulls both to the dark and stewed and the light and fresh: crisp apples and gummi bears face off against raisin jam and orange bitters.
The dark fruit leads, with rich raisins, sultanas, dates and prunes backed up by big spice: cinnamon fireballs and freshly-grated nutmeg. As that calms, the orchard fruit and gummi bears from the nose are revealed. Liquorice notes develop.
The liquorice continues, with spiced apple jam spread on toasted black bread.
Don't be fooled by the fresh fruit notes: this is a bit of a beast. The intense dark notes are carefully balanced by the light, but it's still rich and very sherried.

Not what I expected. Quite thin and very chilli spice. The nose was awesome – lots of fruitiness, especially red berries. The palate has a lot of sultana flavours and loads of dark chocolate.
