Review: Gordon & MacPhail (Smith’s Glenlivet) 21 yr. oldAugust 28th, 2008
Gordon & MacPhail (“Smith’s Glenlivet”), 21 year old, 43%, $125
Well-rounded and pleasingly sweet, with ripe red strawberries, raspberry, tropical fruit, graham cracker, white chocolate, and anise, all on a bed of toffee. Some charred oak on the finish. This whisky has a gentle, soothing persona which I think most people will enjoy (including me).
