The Glenlivet XXV
A 25 year old from The Glenlivet, finished in Oloroso sherry casks.
The nose is thick and rich. There are notes of chewy sultanas and morello cherry, notes of dried herbs and cooked fruits with apple crumble and a balanced acidity. There are notes of crème de cacao. The palate is thick and smooth. There are notes of sherried peels and sultanas, chewy toffee and walnut, dried fruits emerge with a juicy touch. The finish is long and rich with winter spice.
BEATS THEM ALL!!!
You can taste every year of it
Just Finished My First Bottle of Glenlivet XXV - Batch No. 60610
Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!! This is a lot better than the 21-year old Archive bottle I have. So much flavor packed into a fancy bottle and packaging. I assume some of the extra cost is the wooden display box, but it is fantastic and worth every penny. I've always wanted the Macallan 25 year because it was seen in the James Bond movies, but with Macallan, a lot of the cost is the advertising from those movies. Since I cant afford Macallan, Glenlivet XXV is by far the best I have ever had and worth every penny.

Several years ago I treated myself, by buying this whisky while passing through a Duty Free Shop. I have been savoring it in small helpings shared with special guests. Yesterday we finished the bottle and were very disappointed that the amount remaining, only left enough for a dram for my friend and one for me. 5 stars

This was a gift from my wife to celebrate my retiring after 25 years as an air traffic controller. It is beautifully displayed in our home and brought out from time to time to celebrate a special occasion.
The taste is rich with so much complexity. The taste just explodes in your mouth and is a joy each time I bring it down off the shelf.

By far One of the best single malts out there. I prefer it neat almost like a cognac. Definitely a scotch to drink on a special occasion.

After talking to a turkish friend of mine About our love of whisky I recall a time at the bar at St. Andrews (lucky me) with a wine importer lining up a selection of whisky's to taste, Glenlivet came out by way the best ! Years later and many bottles later it is still the king. Unless any one can recommend better!

Thank you brother in law
After waiting an hour in a restaurant for our reserved table. The manager offered the table desserts on the house. My brother in law said skip the dessert for the table and had them pour a 25 Glenlivet for me. It was amazing. Excellent! very smooth. Thank you to my brother in law. I could never afford it myself

I actually won a bottle of XXV at a silent auction. Got it for half the price. Saved it until my 25th wedding anniversary then promptly drank the whole dam bottle. Did share one or two with my neighbor but kept most for myself. Great whiskey.
