Insider knowledge: Glenlivet 31 Year Old 1978 (Adelphi) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Glenlivet 31 Year Old 1978 (Adelphi) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Incredible notes of caramel and chocolate, really rich, hints of oil, grass and cut fruits.
Palate: Fruit lozenges, malt, marzipan, coconut, fruit.
