Review: Duncan Taylor “NC2″ Glenlivet, 22 yr. oldJune 29th, 2010
Duncan Taylor (distilled at Glenlivet), 1987 vintage, 22 year old, 46%, $110
Whiskies distilled at Glenlivet might be easy to find throughout the world, but this is a good thing. Take this one from Duncan Taylor—it’s delicious! It’s elegantly complex, with a tropical accent (coconut, pineapple), strawberries with whipped cream, and caramel-dipped apple. The sweetness is never heavy or cloying, and it’s balanced by lovely dried spice throughout (vanilla, ginger, soft mint, nutmeg), and especially towards the finish. Nicely done!
