    Not very pleasant at all, and I'm not sure what else there is to say. The palate is heavily astringent with big notes of stone fruit pits and virgin-oak-esque vanilla, but these aren't flavors that "pop" - they just remain in the background while your tongue is overwhelmed by loads of tannins and metallic alcohol. The sad part is that Glenlivet (especially when they charge $110+ a bottle) can do really amazing stuff, and while this was a fun little attempt at a novelty NAS, I can't help but feel like the diatillery came up with this as a means to get rid of a surplus of subpar casks not compatible with the style of their core lineup. I sincerely hope, however, that this is not the case.

    Smells heavy of alcohol. The ethanol alcohol nose that a cheaper whisky would have. It is a light amber color and tastes more floral than anything else. It has a slight burn and longish finish. Not very complex IMO. Not worth the MSRP of $130. Cannot recommend this one.

    Really great whisky and had the pleasure of tasting this at the Glenlivet Distillery. It's complex and layered, with notes of roses, brown sugar and apricot. There's also touches of ginger and nutmeg on the palate. The finish is long. Good stuff!
