The Guardians have spoken! In late 2013, Glenlivet sent out samples of three different single malts to the Guardians of Glenlivet all over the world and let them choose what would be the next release for the distillery. The winner was this limited edition exotic single malt, which features a proportion of ex-Spanish Sherry butt matured whisky. The Glenlivet Guards' Chapter has plenty of plump raisin, dark chocolate and warming spice notes to keep the Guardians happy.

Very similar to BenRiach 12 Sherry Wood Matured, for over 10$ less.

Really loved this one, the taste is smooth and the quality shows through despite the lack of age statement. Beware of the blue packaging though if you look to buy off the shelf, inferior variants now look very similar!

I was one of the many who voted for this one over the other two candidates. To me it shone out because of its balance. It had a classic finish. I typically like smokey whiskys but to me this whisky has taken whisky back through the ages to a time of more simplicity, the paradox being the flavour has a spicey complexity. FYI. We tasted the a vast range of Glenlivet that evening so it was not only being compared to two new ones in terms of forming an opinion.

Dried fruit and a touch of rubber on the nose. Sweet and spicy on the palate with the caramel and chocolate clearly noticeable with a bit of the sherry coming at the end. I'm not a sherry cask fan, but I found this Glenlivet nicely balanced and quite tasty--worth the $85 US.

Wonderful smell and mouthfeel, though in the finish it is very clear that this whisky is rather young, and they describe it as spicy i describe it as spirity and dry!

The nose on this one is quite delightful. The exotic fruit notes pervade and provide a balance throughout the taste experience. The Guardian's Chapter is a nice addition to the Glenlivet family.

Hard to believe this was the best of the three options. For the same money, stick to the Nadurra.

Not overly impressed by this one. It's rubbery on the nose, and that carries on in the taste. Seems altogether that the choice of sherry casks was poor. With water the defects become more prominent, so I prefer to drink it without water. Luckily it is rather smooth at nearly 50%.

A fine new release by Glenlivet and much appreciated. As noted the higher alcohol rating makes it that much better, very smooth for almost 50%. Similar flavors to the classic range but with a little erxtra kick, well worth the cash.

Sampled this in Edinburgh and it is fantastic. Not typically a fan of Glenlivet but the added strength really helps.
