Glenlivet Illicit Still Bottling Note
This expression from Glenlivet was inspired by the stories of Glenlivet's founder George Smith, illicitly distilling whisky before licencing his distillery. It's a limited edition single malt Scotch whisky, bottled at 48% ABV, offering up familiar fruity notes characteristic of Glenlivet's whiskies.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Pear drops, green apples, custard, freshly baked pastries with flakes almonds and a dusting of sugar.
Palate: Honeyed porridge, more green apple brightness, a slow build of red berries, perhaps a touch of festive spice.
Finish: Fried banana, drying oaky spices, waxy citrus peels.
