What's in a name? The Glenlivet 35 Year Old 1977 (cask 8574) - Directors' Cut (Douglas Laing) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled The Glenlivet 35 Year Old 1977 (cask 8574) - Directors' Cut (Douglas Laing) whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: An aroma of Seville orange zest and Acacia honey forms a vibrantly fresh nose.
Palate: Incredibly sweet with notes of demerara sugar, barley and candied orange peel.
Finish: Notes of vanilla, honey and leather.
I dont belive this has a lot of sherry cask influense. Ienjoyed it thow.
