Whisky or Whiskey

Insider knowledge: The Glenlivet Archive 21 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be The Glenlivet Archive 21 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is quite full and rich. There are notes of sandalwood and pine with a resinous note. Potpourri creeps in with barley sugar and cereal notes with acacia honey. The palate is rich and full. There are notes of oily walnuts and winter fruitcake with spice and sugar. There is a golden syrup note. The finish is long and sweet with a soft, chewy oak.

    weak and muted?

    bland whiskey? I genuinely feel sorry for your palette.

    Weak and muted

    This is overpriced and bland whiskey. Don't waste your money. Put it this way a Macallan 12 year old is better than this every day of the week. While it looks pretty, there is no flavor here. It just tastes like watered down black coffee. Please trust me when you read this, step away from this one and look elsewhere. Aberlour 18, or The Balvenie Double Wood 17 are a much better choices for the money.

    Spicy

    I tried a dram of this very recently and was very impressed. The fragrance is strong and noticeable as soon as you have poured which I have not experienced before. This whisky is very complex and spicy which would be great as a winter drink in my opinion opposed to a Macallan Ruby which isn't as warming and much smoother on the pallet. Both have a great finish. I would totally agree with the review below title "Christmas presents". I have scored this whisky an 8 as I think you get almost as much bang for your buck in the Glenlivet 15 yo which I own a bottle of.

    A OK

    It's a good scotch, but I can think of better scotches for the money. Personally I think Macallan 12 is better than this scotch, but the 21 is rare, and old so why not. I enjoyed the presentation more than anything, and I also like the color and flavor, although it is a bit one dimensional with wood and a muted spice. If you want it and need to have it, I say buy it. If you want a real scotch tho, pick up a Macallan 18 or a Glendronach 21 Parliament.

    Frankly my dear, I don't give a dram (Because I'm saving it all for myself!)

    After being turned off Glenlivet having only tried the lacklustre 12, this 21 was a real surprise. Night and day difference! This is a rich, round and smoothly voluptuous dram with satisfying substance.

    A compelling and most pleasant Whisky, so much so. Sat down for a quiet Whisky and realised half the bottle had evaporated.

    Every year for Mother's Day, I put a bucket of Ice and this Glenlivet out in case my two sons decide to "surprise" me. For twenty years I was sad they never came for a drink with their poor old mother. Today I say "great" It leaves more for me. Glenlivet 21 is the nectar of the G-ds.

    Good, but largely disappointing for a 21. Comparable to a Balvenie 14 or Macallan 12.

    Something to love

    I had this at a party with other scotch lovers. The after notes are amazing. An absolutely beautiful nose and over amazing bottle.

    Something special

    I have been lucky enough to have shared 6 bottles of this great whiskey with my friends. Im not an expert in any way but always savour this special drop and save to buy one everytime one of lifes milestone comes along. I splashed on the 25yr old on an overseas trip and have great memories of that but its this 21 I would love to afford every day.

    Christmas presents

    Last Xmas I recieved a bottle of 18 yr. old Macallan. This year it was the Glenlivet 21. A side by side comparison was in order. The results; Macallan is very smooth, finish medium long with a milder taste. Very easy to drink for a non-scotch taster. Glenlivet has a more pronounced taste which I prefer. The finish is just as long and just as smooth. It wasn't the first choice for the non-scotch crowd but was for those who abide. Winner; Glenlivet by a dram.

    The perfect companion

    I usually drink the 18yr old Glenlivet but when i was travelling I splashed out on this 21yr old. It is worth the extra money - thank you for such a nice dram.

    13th October 2011

    altho I'm not a expert I'd say that this is one of the best scotches that I've had, it was smooth and delicious and every drink I would taste a new flavor, definatly buying it again but my next purchase will be the 1972
