The Glenlivet Archive 21
A Gold Medal Winner at the 2005, 2006 and 2007 International Wine & Spirit Competition, the 2002 International Spirits Challenge and a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. This is a well-regarded 21 year old from Glenlivet.
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.
Disappointed for the price ($169) US
True Single Malt
Quick and snappy finish. Just nothing that warrants the price.

Sandal wood on the nose, some malt on the palate and nutty flavor, better with a hint of Evian water. Not a long finish. Does not worth the price. Compares with a 15 years old Glenfiddich.

Disappointing for a 21 year old SM. Quintessentially Glenlivet, and I am usually not a fan. I've read the words muted and one-dimensional. Those are accurate adjectives to describe it. There are much more interesting scotches for less. The first one that comes to mind is Highland Park 18.

I love reading everyone's opinions regarding this very mature and robust Scotch Whiskey. For the seasoned alcoholic, yes I can imagine this wouldn't quite fit the bill, however for the Scotch connoisseur who drinks it strictly to enjoy the fullness of flavor and delicate hint of spice, this is one phenomenal Scotch Whiskey! Cheers Glenlivet!

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.
