Whisky or Whiskey
What's in a name? The Glenlivet Archive 21 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled The Glenlivet Archive 21 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.

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

bland whiskey? I genuinely feel sorry for your palette.

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.

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.

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.

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.
