Duncan Taylor (distilled at Glenlivet), cask #2831, 39 year old, 44.7%

Price: $305.00 Issue: Fall 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

This whisky fits the profile of other extra-matured Glenlivet whiskies I’ve tasted. Notes of coconut and other assorted tropical fruit, old rum, caramel custard, shortbread cookies, vanilla malt, and a hint of cotton candy. This is all balanced by polished oak. A soothing, rather sweet whisky (which is quite surprising for its age).
